Productive workplace where I was able to experience a variety of nursing skills.
Nursing Student (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 January 2017
I have worked at St. Paul's Hospital for 15 days for my preceptorship. It was a valuable experience that I could know what my strengths and weak points are. Since I am not originally from Canada, I could also learn Canadian work styles and could see how much they respect patients with different cultures as it is multicultural country. Even nursing career is physically hard job, I enjoyed all the time here because compliments and greeting of thanks from patients made me think that nursing is worthful career and nursing is right for me.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 5 November 2015
St. Pauls Hospital is challenging because of it's diverse population of patients. On our unit (7th Medicine) we find ourselves looking after seniors suffering from dementia, people suffering from mental illness and substance use disorders and a wide variety of medical problems. I am always happy to go to work because of the incredible teamwork exhibited by my colleagues and by the incredible support and presence of our manager.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 October 2015
I was the office's sole administrative assistant; it was a good job and was very beneficial to me because it allowed me to perfect my customer service, phone, and other communication skills in a high-pressure office with lots of responsibilities.
Environmental Cleaner (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 10 September 2015
A typical day at work would entail being assigned to different areas and units of the hospital; Our duties as an employee was to sanitize, clean patient area, floors, walls, bathrooms.
What i liked the most about my job were the patients that i would meet along the way and was able to make their day brighter with even something as simple as a smile and a hello when cleaning their room.
What i disliked most about this job is all the politics, gossip, and negativity that circulated amongst the employees.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 July 2014
work included cleaning and sanitizing patient's rooms, caring for plants, supplying fresh ice water, changing bedding. Staff was treated with respect and courtecy. Since there were mostly women in our department,gossip was common, and i learned not to involve myself. I have always had a healthy , positive attitude toward any type of work, and like my work.
working in a clean environment, within working distance from home.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 September 2013
I started working at St. Paul's hospital last November 2011. With all the pharmacies that I went through this is the best one I love. I enjoyed very much working with my colleages and I learned so many skills that I didn't learned in the community pharmacies. My coworkers are very good people and very easy to work with. Though sometimes there are few that are sometimes tough but it's just a matter of how you deal with them. The management is so good. So far, they are giving us good benefits. Since I worked in this hospital, I didn't find any hardship in my job and I enjoyed most of the time whatever shift I gonna take each day.
It is a government hospital with full benefits
If I can't make my exam to be regulated on 2015, I'll be layed off
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 17 February 2013
I have been at St. Paul's Hospital in Saskatoon for 8 years. I have loved every minute of it. The staff is like family. The patients say they can feel and see it. We genuinely care for one another. The hardest part of the job is watching a patient pass. The best part of the job is watching people walk again, or even just go home.
Aid & Porter (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 September 2012
I enjoyed my work place because management systems was excellent, my co-workers were very co-operative and always willing to teach or explain about the work. Always getting the chance to update or inservice anything related to the work. Sometimes get run out of time to breaks because of busy; may be short of staff or increased patients. Eventhough I enjoyed my working with my co-workers and management.
