Busy, but rewarding
Teaching load is big, but management is great. Lots of admin, prep is involved.
Sometimes class sizes are 24-25, which is a challenge.

Hard to get into permanent position.

Good company overall
You will love where you work because your work is making a real difference in someone's life. That said, it can be fairly political and the pay is generally lower than other comparable institutions.

Review of Current Workplace
Fairly good place to work. Very fast paced work place during each semester. I have learned even greater organizational skills in order to be able to do my job effectively. The most difficult part of my job is to be able to effectively manage all courses and be able to communicate with all instructors to ensure each course is up-to-date and have everything done for each semester.

Enjoyed watching my students grow into wonderful nurses
Working with nursing students was a wonderful experience. My students had an opportunity to work with patients on a Trauma/Surgery unit which allowed for them to demonstrate their skills that the had learned in lab.

A Very personable place to workl
Every thing I every needed or wanted was given to my classroom. A Very good balance of holidays and work. Time off was given freely if you had a reasonable reason for your reprieve. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The assignments are very aligned to your specialty.
The workplace culture if one of politeness and caring. The most enjoyable part of my day was having lunch with my colleagues.

Amazing work environment, I loved it here.
I spent my time here on a part-time contract. My co-workers and management were incredibly supportive and actively made an effort to help me grow professionally and listened to me whenever I had any concerns about projects or the work environment.

They were very welcoming and gave me the opportunity to take on new responsibilities without it becoming overwhelming, including allowing me to say no to projects that did not meet certain criteria (such as a reasonable expected turnaround date and a locked down scope of work.)


I was also allowed a VERY flexible schedule, allowing me to switch days or hours as often as needed as long as I provided reasonable notice, and they trusted me to get the work done on my own schedule without making me feel pressured. The result of this was that even in the busiest periods, I felt confident in being able to complete the work on time (often well before the deadline) without feeling stressed out.


Regular meetings were also scheduled twice monthly to ensure that I felt I was getting everything I needed to do my job, that I wasn't overburdened or did not have enough to do, and any suggestions to what could be done better. I was even given the opportunity to make my own proposals for adding to the department or the school in general.


The hardest part of this job was honestly leaving. I was lucky enough to have my contract extended and even received a promotion during my short tenure as a media developer. They unfortunately did not have the budget at the time to renew my contract, but I'd be happy to return in the future if the opportunity
