Good nursing practice on an in-patient nephrology unit. Staff is knowledgable and easy to get along with. Very good opportunity to practice a variety of nursing skills.

The lab is full of friendly people to work with and very knowledgable individuals whom you get to learn a lot from. The environment is positive and not distracting so everyone is fairly productive.

Unqualified management, punitive work environment, devaluing of employees, high stress atmosphere, top heavy management structure, poor job security especially for part timers, pay rate lower than most hospitals. Massive budget shortages resulting in job losses for front line staff while not a single manager or director lost their job. Possibly one of the worst job experiences I’ve ever had.

Like any workplace, the environment can get tense. I worked at the West 5th campus, and my co-workers were not great to say the least. Very tense place to work, the only up side of it was the patients who welcome you like family. That being said, a lot of the administrative staff is amazing and welcoming. It's mostly the medical staff that are horrid and entitled (doctors, nurses, occupational therapists). Management basically has control of nothing, they're all run by the people above them. I felt terror before every day working here. Good luck with this place.

I engaged in patient transfer from the main doors to the Dialysis room. Talking and learning to engage with mostly elderly people helped to really engage my compassion and willingness to care for others. The hardest part was when a regular would no longer show up. But knowing that I had at some point put a smile on their face from out small 2 minute conversations made me feel like i had an impact in making their life better, even if it was just for a little bit.
