RN (Current Employee) – Halifac N.S. Dartmouth General Emergency – October 31, 2013
I enjoyed the autonomy given to nurses working in a busy emergency department. It was fast paced but a very satisfying job, being able to help those in need. Opportunities for advancement as well as educational opportunities.
Worked on a very fact paced unit with many things happening at the same time. This unit worked as a team. It felt.like a family working together. During codes emergency situations everyone worked together and supported each other,
Medical Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – CDHA, NS – June 3, 2015
Always very busy,but satisfying employment Need to stay focused and be aware of your surroundings, especially when working on patient floors. A few great co workers who would bend over backwards to help you ,but many more who would sell you out for a dime. A tremendous amount of "favoritism" in the workplace. How far you advanced in your position mattered mainly on how great your friendship was with the Supervisor. So not much room for advancement unless your someones cousin or best friend. Women in management roles are "Catty" having an instant dislike for other women under their supervision. The hardest part of the job was time limitations. The best part of the job was working and interacting with the patients.
Working for Capital Health in Victoria General Hospital was a great experience for me. It was both very challenging and rewarding to work with Capital Health. It was challenging because of the lack of resources, yet rewarding because of the excellent and knowledgeable staff that continuously helped each and supported each other in order to survive a day of work. My typical day of work starts with assessment of my patients, caring out nursing procedures, communicating with other members of multidisciplinary team and advocating for my patients. Working as a Registered Nurse is continuous learning process to be able to provide the best and safe care to the patients. The hardest part of my work is to provide the best care while working with limited nursing staff. Rewarding part of my work is when, going home after my shift is finished, knowing that I did everything I could to help my patients to go through their ordeal and they appreciated my work.

CLERK B - ORTHOTICS/PROSTHETICS (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – August 28, 2012
A typical day at work for me is greeting patients that come in, registering them, booking appointments and answering phones. I work with wonderful people dedicated to helping our patients. The hardest part of the job is when we are short staffed and the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet a lot of different people with different abilities/disabilities and how they are overcoming them.
