Volunteer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 December 2013
As a International educated nurse a typical day at work in Providence healthcare gives me an idea how the health system in Canada works. It gives me the feeling of excitement since I came there as a volunteer giving meal assistance to the residence during their meals.
I learned how to appreciate my field, Nursing. I was assigned to Alzheimer's patients and I had the opportunity not only to apply the correct intervention in certain situations but learn to appreciate life most of all.
The management I worked with gives me the room to grow and show me how the system works. I enjoy their company for they also shared their experiences.
Like the management, co-workers gave you the room to gain confidence and patience in team-building environment.
First day were always been the hardest part of the job since your start to create a system to prioritize things according to their needs.
Being in a team-building environment made me realized that this job are more enjoyable and made me feel at home.

Full-time/Casual medical float nurse (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 November 2017
I very much enjoyed working at Providence Health care, there were many learning opportunities and the culture there was positive and caring. I learned a lot about working with inner city populations and appreciated that exposure and the people skills as well as compassion that I practiced,
