Enriching experience involved in the education of future health care workers
CNA I and CNA II Instructor (Current Employee) – Wilmington, NC – June 7, 2016
As I contemplated returning to college to obtain my BSN, I decided it would be best to obtain a part time position in order to concentrate on achieving my goal. This job has provided me with the most satisfying job of my career. It allows me to continue to interact with long term care patients, students and other nurses. I have been more than fulfilled by this opportunity. However, after obtaining my degree I have decided I would like to return to a clinical environment, where I can continue to develop my skills as a staff nurse with direct patient care, learning new advancements in this field. I am very excited to continue into a new avenue in my nursing career.

Academic and Personal Counselor (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – April 27, 2016
A typical day at work would include counseling and advising student. Transcript evaluation, relieving receptionist at Counseling window, planning and teaching classes and special events and participation at departmental meetings.
I learned about the bureaucratic levels in a large institutions and how to function among them. I also learned about all of our curriculrm and health system requirements as we monitored admissions to these programs.
Managers were very involved in our daily activities and did not always seem to value past expertise and accomplishments. This taught me to be very observant and to understand the office culture and ways to develop their trust in my abilities.
My co-workers were supportive and most capable. This was not a competitive environment and I developed good relationships.
The hardest part of the job was delivering information to students that more work on courses and programs was required,
The most enjoyable part of the job was developing relationships with students that helped them to grow and achieve their goals. We attended every graduation and it was such a great feeling to know we contributed to their success.
My typical day was spent importing online data into the college database, processing, and working with students from the beginning of their college experience through graduation. The technical skills I learned will serve me anywhere I go. I learned how a college environment operates and how it takes the whole village to help students reach their goals. I had the privilege of gaining knowledge for each department as the trouble shooter for student files. I worked several extra contracts for various short term jobs at the college which gave me more knowledge. The college has a new president that previously was a VP. She has built a new team of VP's and Directors to take the college forward which is proving to be very successful. No negative reports. Student success was definitely the most rewarding part of the job.
Productive and staff is great!!! I tutor all MOA students for medical billing, transcription, health insurance, icd-10 and Cpt coding. The hardest part of the job is trying to fill the shoes of the previous tutor. The most enjoyable part is helping fellow students achieve and excel in their academics.
Cape Fear Community College has many good opportunities for students and is a nice place to work with the exception of being an uncertain employment due to budgets and have a lot of turnover because of it. All employees are contracted for specific times and may or may not be renewed to continue employment.
I enjoyed my part-time work at CFCC which consisted of MWF shift 6am-3pm. My work was mainly supervising surgical technology students while also coordinating with Medical facility staff in the efforts to facilitate a productive learning environment for the students. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing each student succeed. The hardest part of the job was actually juggling this part-time work with a full-time job. The company was very accommodating to my schedule. Due to the nature of the job I had very little interaction with co-workers. Management was very supportive.
I loved working at Cape Fear Community College. I was exposed to diversity and culture on a daily basis. The Department Chair is a good supervisor, with an open door policy and willingness to listen to his employees ideas. The hardest part of the job was not being able to teach more classes and the most enjoyable part of the job was teaching.
A typical day at work consist of working with numerous people. The day is filled with answering and returning phone to make sure students are taking the appropriate steps for enrollment. Time management plays a major role in making sure that all tasks are completed before the work day is over. I really enjoy my co-workers. We all show great team work by helping each other with any task at hand. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I have an impact on the lives of students when it comes to furthering their education.

CFCC is a hidden gem! The management staff is outstanding and everyone who works here is happy and satisfied. There are so many opportunities to make an actual difference and everyone is treated equally.

Program Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – June 15, 2015
CFCC is vibrant with young adult, middle aged and senior students. The majority want to improve their lives and the staff is always trying to put student needs first. I learned to communicate with many first time college students and many academics from many large colleges and universities. The communications with people from very differing backgrounds was a true learning experience. Many of our students were from other states -- far away and nearby. It was quite a learning experience and I enjoyed the diversified nature of the communications needs.

Translated scientific ideas to students and peers. Guided students on productive study habits. Maintained autonomy in executing lab protocols. Learned how to multitask in new ways. Discussed scientific ideas with co-workers that may benefits student's understanding. Hardest part of the position was dealing with uncooperative and resistant individuals. The most enjoyable part was observing when students became autonomous and aware that they could understand the material.
Teacher (Current Employee) – Wilmington, NC – April 22, 2015
I am responsible for the care of young children. I spend the majority of my time creating activities and carrying them out with the children. Mentoring students and my teacher assistants in the lab school setting are also part of my job description. I am responsible for maintaining training hours in the early childhood field, as well as any workshops that will help me extend my knowledge and skills in my current profession. However, the most rewarding part of my job is seeing the smiles on the children's faces.
