What department are you in now and what department interest you the most? I am working in the emergency room department now. But I think I would like to practice and study Renal Dialysis Nursing. I am very interested in learning how to be a renal dialysis nurse. I always wonder how the dialysis machine work and how to take care of those patients with kidney diseases. Anyone in mylot who is a dialysis nurse? What department are you interested in? If you are still a nursing student or an unemployed nurse, you can still answer the question. Why do you like to be in that area?

I am a nurse but unfortunately i am not working as one. I wish to work and be assigned in the Emergency Unit like you do..i just love the tension sometime..ehehe. But after being assigned in a hemodialysis unit in one of my voluntary work, i think i love to work in the hemodialysis unit now 'if' given the chance. It's a nice area although it's a bit boring waiting for the dialysis patients to finish their 4 hours session. But paying for a training to become a dialysis nurse costs a lot so its hard to get the job.. Can't even find a hospital that needs more nurses..how much more being a dialysis nurse.

You are absolutely right. There are many unemployed nurses here in the Philippines and more are coming with large numbers of whom who newly passed. The good ones or I mean the more experienced ones are resigning and going abroad. All left in our country are fresh new ones who will be also preparing themselves to go out of this country. Out there, we find jobs. What is left for our country then? The ER is a cool place to work in.haha But sometimes it also gets boring and sometimes it is really busy... These happens when there are rare cases or accidents that happen, of course... like a 4 year old boy bitten by a horse on the face and so... Unlike in the RDU, it's always routine procedure.
