Fast paced and each day is never the same. Wonderful learning new skills from all types of staff. You must be able to deal with many types of personalities and sometimes it can be very challenging. Very rewarding career for the most part
typical day at work would include, discharging charts, executing phone consults to doctors, screen calling and insuring patient confidentiality. Management was fair and tried to make the work environment less stressful and more efficient. Hardest part of the job was the grimness that occurs in an emergency department. the best was collaborating with my co workers to make work easier on us.
Where I work it is a feeling of family, we work as a team which is very high on my list. The most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with the parents when the first come to the unit, they have no idea what to expect. Their first priority is their child, so for me to make them more comfortable and try to make them feel at ease is a great reward.
I've worked on many units and I have to say that each unit is different, but the attitudes many healthcare professionals is a bit similar. some units are very catty, others more relaxed, but one thing that is the same is the gossip and stress by coworkers.
I love being a unit clerk. I enjoy going where the need is to help out a unit and perform my job to the best of my ability. We can be very busy with admissions, discharges, transfers and post op patients, let alone the orders we process on the unit. In the clinics you're checking patients in, making sure the proper information is available for their appointment, re booking appointments or surgeries and always being kind, professional and helpful.
co workers are usually awesome
Angry emotional nursing staff. Liked my job as ward clerk. Treated very well, most places. Work orders were clear and manageable. Breaks/lunch great.

Unit Clerk positions
Students enter positions for practicum and sometimes get hired right after their course, most don’t get hired right away. Those that don’t get hired get caught in the unfortunate position of “if you don’t use it you lose it “, or maybe do get hired but aren’t given proper training based on their learning level.
Great wages, benefits, flexible schedule, able to pick up shifts

Alberta Health Services is a great employer. They strive to make the workday both enjoyable and challenging for each employee. I have great job satisfaction and cannot imagine a career not in healthcare. I love helping others and am glad that I chose this as my main career.
assisting patients get through difficult times
I work in a confidential, health related enviroment with many time sensitive deadlines. I enjoy the people I work with and visit with the public as time permits in my role of registering paitents to see the nurse practioner. I conduct hand hygiene audits in 4 locations quarterly.
work area is extremely warm in summer months
I have learned a lot over the last few years working as a unit clerk. Its fun, interesting. You get to work beside doctors and nurses. Sometimes they can be rude, but you just deal with it and keep doing the job. Non stop police, fire fighters, STARS and EMS. You get to see a lot of scary stuff.
