In general, a well organized workplace with numerous opportunities in a variety of nursing fields, lots of lateral mobility to try different areas of nursing and plenty of flexibility for casual, part time, temporary, or full time work. A generally collaborative and team-based environment.

I work 12 hour day/night rotations on a very fast paced enviroment. The unit i work on requires us to have up to 6 patients on days and 7-8 on nights. Working with my colleagues (management, coworkers, allied health, and Educator) have been one of the biggest reasons why I have not moved on to a different work place. We work in a cohesive way which allows us to support one another. Over the years I have learned various things. Nursing skills varying from Telemetry, Chest Tubes, Wound care, and NG care. I also had the opportunity to be charge quite often on the unit that allowed me to learn community resources and outpatient supports.
Patients come first. There is continuity of care ,respect in all levels of supervisors and colleagues. In addition there is computer support, frequent educational in-services, updates of policies and procedures.
I have been with Alberta Health Services for over 14 years in Postpartum in a hospital setting for 2 years and then in Public Health giving vaccinations for 2 years and then specializing in Postpartum Community Health Services ever since. I am also a Lactation Consultant. My typical day involves engaging in new moms and babies the day after they leave the hospital and following them up until the baby is 2 months of age if required. I provide resources, complete Postpartum Depression Screens to moms I feel are at risk. I also have follow up telephone calls based on prior visits to assess progress and arrange further follow up if necessary. I work independently, but am able to consult with NTT or SW if needed. I have learned so much, but I would place emphasis on not judging anyone, learning effective communication skills and I feel and have been told by management many times my assessment skills far exceed expectations in every area. I am able to develop a quick rapport with clients which is essential. My co-workers, for me, are another set of eyes on calculating serum bilirubin samples I have collected to ensure no mistakes are made. The hardest part of my job is that I feel I must complete a full assessment no matter how long it takes, even though management only assigns 1.25 hrs per client. At times, this can be done if the rest can be done over the phone. But if I am at a clients' home, I will not have them commute to the office to be seen for the rest of the assessment to be completed. In being a Lactation Consultant as well, I am well versed in breastfeeding - plus...
I am very confident and conscientious in my job

Acquired skills in time management, career enhancement. Ability to work effectively with coworkers. most difficult part of job is experience with death of clients from illness or injury. Most enjoyable part of job is discharging someone home feeling better from medical care they received.
Many jobs in many areas, however, sometimes difficult to even get called for an interview as a lot of internal hiring occurring
excellent wage, union representation
Not many interview opportunities despite abundance of open lines
While Frontline staff are awesome and take great pride in their work, AHS is a hierarchical and generally dysfunctional organization
Management and Human Resources say they are about recruitment and retention when in fact they are the cause of attrition. I worked for AHS for 10 years, in several different environments, many were filled with harassment and bullying but little is done even though both AHS, and UNA have policies to deal with it. Managers are not trained in leadership and are often behind the dysfunction. The best manager with the happiest workplace I have worked in was let go because manager butted heads with middle management. They find something that will stick and then run with it, and are not afraid to ruin your reputation and your career. I miss the people that I worked with and the patients but I do not miss the politics and the manipulation.
Compensation, benefits, coworkers
Lack of leadership, lack of integrity, lack of care towards staff.
There are tones of opportunities within AHS. The only downside is that there are so many employees that it's hard to move up the ladder
Rural Health better a looking after staff. Since sweeping changes made several years ago not the same place to work needs to get back to taking care of patients and staff to improve
Busy shifts with tons of learning experiences. Management somewhat disorganized but willing to help out with shift preferences especially when it concerns family life. Amazing bunch of people to work with. Very busy unit and high patient acuity.
