The staff is very respectful of each other and willing to assist no matter the profession. Everyone assists each other and make the patients feel welcomed and special. I do work with a good medical professional team.

Nsha has good pay, a good union, great people and great lunch breaks. A typical day is around 10 hours of handing out masks, asking people to sanitize thier hands and directing people to thier destination.

Points positifs

1 lunch good pay

Points négatifs

CTA Viewing on NSHA and It's Culture

Working for Nova Scotia Health does have it's benefits and disadvantages. A typical day can be a 12 hour shift, which consists of patient care, vitals, and other delegated tasks. Some times things change quickly and you need to be able to adapt to these changes quickly. Depending on your unit you can do various jobs according to the employer policies and what management tells you. Know your scope of practice well and know what can be delegated to you. Management can be difficult and they show they have favorites, and believe me they will listen to the employees who have been there for years compared to new hires. There is a lack of communication and respect between CTA's and RN's and they will prove that they are much more important then you are. Culture wise it is mostly white dominated and very little representation is shown and apparent. The hardest part is knowing you are overlooked for everything, always make sure everything is done in a timely manner. The most important part of the job is getting documentation done correctly and quickly before rounds are completed. Otherwise the place is not horrible, just needs some work and respect needs to given to everyone.

Points positifs

New Experience, gaining of new skills, working within the interdisciplinary tearm

Points négatifs

non paid half hour break, management, lack of communication

Mobility between units/specialty areas

Bad place to work for if you are foreign-trained RN. Does not recognize RN experience outside Canada. Deplorable. Generally, Nova Scotians are nice. Pen and paper charting.

Points positifs

Job security, sponsored specialty trainings

Points négatifs

Under funded

Decent pay, mixed work pace.

Pay is decent, long/quick days as it can be super busy and sometimes slow. No complaints but if you want to progress or change your department, seniority, union and all things are hurdles. It took me more than 6 months to secure my education related work and I started as a casual over again.

Points positifs

Decent pay

Points négatifs

Seniority stops you to progress despite education

Overworked, underappreciated , stressful cesspool of germs.

Unless you get a permanent position off the bat you'll be a casual relief for at least a year. Room for advancement but job security for casuals is nil. If you like chaos, being looked at by Drs., Nurses, and management like you are worthless and not worthy of being talked to ,this is the place for you. Worst 5 work years of my life .

Points positifs

Become immune to ebola within the first year

Points négatifs

Need to get sick to become immune to everything lol.

Hostile and uncomfortable work environment

Working in Healthcare can be a very hostile and stressful environment. Not worth what they pay you. Nurses and some staff who've been there for a long time make you feel like your beneath them at times, can become very annoying and uncomfortable.Work/life balance can be decent if you don't work full time. You can get significant time off etc.

Points positifs

Certain coworkers that you become friends with over time, supervisors are understanding and accommodate your schedule when needed

Points négatifs

Long hours, nasty coworkers, hostile environment, no help from managers when there are issues

Your success is directly proportional to your input.

My position as a Covid-19 Site Screener has definitely been interesting, to say the least - definitely a plus if you like dealing with people in a repetitive nature.As this project is as a result of the on-going pandemic, there is a lot of learning as you go. If you can be professional, don't mind saying the same spiel over and over, this might be the job for you.

casual/temp positions get you in the door

Food service is generally always hiring so it is an easy way to get a unionized position and it introduces you to most of the hospital. You have to be constantly looking for a permanent position the whole time you are working and you get the ‘carrot on a stick’ routine with management saying there may be positions opening up and then the last minute they say no. The permanent staff can basically do and say whatever they want and will talk over you at meetings. The temp staff have their work nitpicked about the smallest things. It is very exhausting to be held to a higher standard while doing the same job as a permanent employee. You get called constantly on your days off and sometimes have to say no to a shift TWICE. Reporting things is a nightmare and makes you think twice about bothering because nothing is done about anything. If you can tolerate this for a few years (!) you might get a chill permanent job but it’s a struggle.

Points positifs

union, some jobs have a pension

Points négatifs

the health insurance is terrible, rude permanent employees, being rushed constantly

Great workplace

NSHA is a great workplace. Great management and environment. Only con is that it takes a long time to get permanent full time due to seniority. Would definitely recommend to someone that would not mind starting out as a casual worker.

Points positifs

Workplace, pay, Environment, Management

Points négatifs

Hard to get a full time permanent job

Excellent Workplace

The workplace is great, lots of patients and working with the same staff daily. You learn new skills and get to develop previous ones. Shifts can range from 8 - 12 with opportunity of working over time. Staff can be hard when working with other members of the health care team but it is very rewarding!

Points positifs

Patients

Points négatifs

Overall

I enjoyed my positions on three units. The staff were hardworking and tried their best to meet patient needs. As in any environment, there are a small few that do not meet the same criteria

Poorly managed and chaotic

NFS within Central Zone of NSHA is poorly managed. Utility workers are deeply unhappy with communications of room service transition from upper management, and lower management is overworked, often being forced to do the work of utility workers due to staffing shortages that cannot be resolved until the reason behind high turnover rate is addressed.

Bullies get promoted. Their behaviour is covered up and swept under the rug.

I have worked in many departments within the NSHA and favouritism and nepotism are definitely part of the work environment. Managers micro-manage even though the majority of them never have done the lower level jobs at all.

Fast paced environment Always learning new skills and tasks daily The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the workload demand and doing it safely The most enjoyable part of the job is the relationship I have with my supportive co-works and patients

Across Canada, this has been my best professional opportunity by far!

I've worked in BC, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia. By far the salary and work-life balance have been superior working and living in Nova Scotia. Colleagues on the work team are truly collaborative and respectful. Great salary and benefits, too.
