Unequal division of labor

Unlike in other wards, my ward has practices this right of passage. The bedside nurse @ always gets the number of level 2 (unstable) patients, the first admission and the equipment charge nurse duty.
In my almost three months of being a bedside 2 nurse, I am getting the hang of this cruelty. I learn to smile seeing the whiteboard where the patient assignment is listed. I always expect the worse.
My favorite bedside nurse commented that I now move fast and efficiently.
I hope though that I could hit my one-hour endorsement marker so I could go home early and do not miss my bus stop.
