Small town rural location with a good international team, team nursing oriented, with dynamic and a vast array of patient diagnoses. An excellentstarting point for any nurse. Some limitations on the location and access to care/education
When I worked there, my immediate nursing supervisor terminated my employment even though I had hurt myself during an orientation shift on her unit (this initiated a very small - 3h WCB claim). I tried to explain this to HER supervisor and I was ignored. Three months later, said immediate supervisor was fired. Now I am blacklisted within AHS & will likely never obtain work there again.

Management was organized and nurses were kept up to date regarding procedures and skills. Although hospital politics did show up at work co-workers were generally friendly and willing to assist with patient care and wellbeing

Licensed Practical Nurse positions
I worked for AHS for over a year and was part of a union which was less than helpful during my probation period. I was bullied as an employee from day one by a senior nurse and felt very uncomfortable coming to work because it felt like I was in high school all over again. I know I was not the only one and that others felt the same too. Put a complaint into the manager who did very little about it. The environment was toxic and there is a table behind the desk where all these women sit around and gossip about each other, rude comments about sister units and the individuals that worked on the other side. I had anxiety coming to work which caused me stress while I was working which made me have a foggy mind during work. too bad because i really liked the position but the environment killed it for me.
lots of hours
too many patients not enough time to spend and thoroughly assess
I feel there are to many management positions within Alberta Health services and it is all about who you know to further your career. Although I enjoy the work and the people that I work with,caring for others can give you a great rewarding feeling .
Best experience and best job opportunities within AHS are in rural settings, highly recommend new nurses to get experience in these settings. Wish there were more incentives like cheap parking or even available staff parking for big city center hospitals for people that want to commute the distance to work in the bigger centers.
Very Competitive for Job Application
A typical day at work can be busy. Lots of vital signs, medication administrations, dressing changes, bedside care, ceiling lifts, caring for orthopedic patients post op, caring for confused patient post op fracture, IV starts, Catheter inserts/removal, etc. In between the chaos, you really learn to work with your time management and organization skills (and sometimes called as "organized chaos") Workplace culture is pretty good and is dependent on every unit to be honest. Healthcare staffs are fun to work with. Most staff I have worked with demonstrate teamwork and professional. Jobs can get stressful, but at the end of the day, I am grateful for having such a wonderful team--- my work family. Hardest Part is being affected mentally and emotionally with patient you have gotten to know and patient having a negative outcome. Most enjoyable part of the job is being a nurse, caring for patients, and working with your team
Wage increase based on hours worked. Benefits, Sick hours assigned to you, Supportive Management, Teamwork and Professionalism
Long Hours, Short Staffed most of the times, Challenging assignments, Can affect you emotionally and mentally.
Depending on which unit you get, you can have the time if your life or have a difficult time. Management seems to be so-so throughout but they’re constantly pulled in many directions and squeezed from up top. All in all they train you well for your position and do let you move units quite easily too.
Alberta Health Services, was a respectable work place with wonderful management and the team had great work ethics. The co-act way with white bored and bedside shift report is a very good way to get a rapport with your patients.
