Student Nurse (Former Employee), Extended Long Term Care – April 20, 2013
Providence Healthcare was an amazing clinical setting to be placed in as a first year nursing student. It was great collaborating with healthcare aids, doctors and physicians. Furthermore, Providence educated me about skills that one cannot learn in a book such as the impact of a nurse's care on a client or communicating with one who has cognitive impairment. My overall experience at Providence Healthcare was an enjoyable and educational one.

I learned that I have the passion of providing sincere supportive care to seniors and elderly persons while working in this facility. I value the opportunity each day that I can make seniors feel loved and cared for. It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces at the end of my shift, a sign of gratitude from them.

Pros: free coffee
Cons: long hours
As a International educated nurse a typical day at work in Providence healthcare gives me an idea how the health system in Canada works. It gives me the feeling of excitement since I came there as a volunteer giving meal assistance to the residence during their meals.
I learned how to appreciate my field, Nursing. I was assigned to Alzheimer's patients and I had the opportunity not only to apply the correct intervention in certain situations but learn to appreciate life most of all.
The management I worked with gives me the room to grow and show me how the system works. I enjoy their company for they also shared their experiences.
Like the management, co-workers gave you the room to gain confidence and patience in team-building environment.
First day were always been the hardest part of the job since your start to create a system to prioritize things according to their needs.
Being in a team-building environment made me realized that this job are more enjoyable and made me feel at home.
