Position was stressful due to interdepartmental conflicts and inadequate resources. Several departments became centralized and siloed making collaboration challenging to provide services to clients

I enjoyed going to work everyday . I started working there when I was 19 and was excited then about my job. When I retired from there 31 years later I was still excited as I was at 19. That was like my second family. Management treated you with upmost respect and made you feel special.
Pros
Happy and health work place.
Cons
None

I learned a lot from this Coop job (commissioning, project management, etc.)

I really found it is a great experience as a Coop student to apply school's knowledge into practice.

Seriously whoever posted an ad looking for a Safety Advisor with 25 yrs experience, and offering $30-$31/hr is a joke. At minimum $75-$125/hr.

Wants a fully degree individual with a quarter century of experience. I've only got 12 years experience but I would never work for less than $65/hr+++.
Pros
Under appreciated
Cons
Pay is a joke

Moving to Ontario has allowed me to reach out to many patient populations. However, I miss the East Coast. I miss the passion. I miss the patient population. I cannot wait to return.

During my short time at Capital Health Authority/Victoria General Site, I was trained by very knowledgeable staff to a degree where I could complete tasks on my own even though I was just a student. I was only there for a month doing my work term, but I enjoyed the time with administrative staff, nurses and surgeons. They were all very open to "showing me the ropes." My time there was informative, enjoyable and eye-opening.
Pros
I hour lunch break, close to city transit and close to city centre.
Cons
Parking wasn't available most times.

CDHA is a good place to work. Lots of resources and support staff and everyone tries to do their best to make a difference. I think it would a better place if there was not such a disconnect between front line staff and and upper management.

Always very busy,but satisfying employment
Need to stay focused and be aware of your surroundings, especially when working on patient floors.

A few great co workers who would bend over backwards to help you ,but many more who would sell you out for a dime.

A tremendous amount of "favoritism" in the workplace. How far you advanced in your position mattered mainly on how great your friendship was with the Supervisor. So not much room for advancement unless your someones cousin or best friend.

Women in management roles are "Catty" having an instant dislike for other women under their supervision.

The hardest part of the job was time limitations. The best part of the job was working and interacting with the patients.
Pros
Patient Interaction and Job
Cons
Unprofessional Supervisors and favourtism

Working for Capital Health in Victoria General Hospital was a great experience for me. It was both very challenging and rewarding to work with Capital Health. It was challenging because of the lack of resources, yet rewarding because of the excellent and knowledgeable staff that continuously helped each and supported each other in order to survive a day of work.
My typical day of work starts with assessment of my patients, caring out nursing procedures, communicating with other members of multidisciplinary team and advocating for my patients.

Working as a Registered Nurse is continuous learning process to be able to provide the best and safe care to the patients.

The hardest part of my work is to provide the best care while working with limited nursing staff.

Rewarding part of my work is when, going home after my shift is finished, knowing that I did everything I could to help my patients to go through their ordeal and they appreciated my work.

A typical day at work for me is greeting patients that come in, registering them, booking appointments and answering phones. I work with wonderful people dedicated to helping our patients. The hardest part of the job is when we are short staffed and the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet a lot of different people with different abilities/disabilities and how they are overcoming them.
