RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – 17 March 2017
We seem to be always short staffed. I get called almost everyday that I'm off to come work extra. There are many days that no one can relieve us for lunch. I have tried to transfer to a less stressful floor but can't seem to do that.
Volunteer Counselor (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – 10 March 2017
At valley I had the opportunity to work with amazing kids who are so positive and fun to be around. I attended valley a lot as a kid, and stopped going in middle school because my life became to busy with softball. Valley allowed me to reconnect with that community and have so much fun at their camp.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – 29 September 2016
I absolutely enjoyed volunteering at Valley Presbyterian Hospital. Call it a biased opinion since my objective in school is to be a Radiologist. I have a passion for healthcare and being a volunteer helped me with interactions such as the patients and the staff. I did multiple tasks that span a variety of different departments such as shadowing staff, patient discharges, lab specimen transport, and medical equipment transport.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – 30 August 2015
Valley presbyterian Hospital is a great workplace with manageable scheduling which is a big plus. Worked at the Med-Surg/Oncology Unit. Census can be high with less staff that can lead to work overload.
Patient Access Rep (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – 18 August 2015
Coworkers amazing. Place, dirty, filthy. Management, poor. ER, you hear nurses often cursing each other, Doctor graveyard does not care for patients at all. Wounds are sent home after an hour of being admitted. Its insane.
