Guest Answer: I do not particularly love, like, the turnover rate depending on, like, right now, it’s, like, kinda high and also probably losing patience. So usually I’m with a patient.

But if you’re a parent and taking care of a baby very soon, that type of stuff, the awkwardness and weirdness just leaves and to kind of grow as a person quite a bit. As a meeting off track as far as what I don’t like, it it can be tough. You know, obviously, it is a really challenging job, or it can really be depending on the team that you’re working with, your coworkers, how many residents or patients you have assigned to you. If you feel like you have more assigned to you, then you can handle that can be really, really challenging. There can be a lot of sometimes they’re staffing issues. So you’re sometimes ending up working short or or working longer hours than you’d like or feeling like you have to work because no one else will. So it’s a good opportunity to at your boundaries and your self care, but it can be a challenge for sure.
