Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Washington, DCAugust 5, 2015
Pros: Enjoyed the skills I was learning
Cons: Wasn't too keen on how the doctor's treated staff
A typical day at work was typing memorandums and sending letters to patients regarding their lab results. I learned a lot of new skills, medical terminology and how to use a lot of hardware. My co-workers were very supportive. The hardest part of the job was trying to grasp all of the information. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and finally starting a career.

Clinical LPN
Licensed Practical Nurse II (Current Employee), Washington, DCMarch 9, 2014
Pros: good benefits.
Cons: lack of team work with co-workers, management who may show favortism, assume without waiting for all details to be given, and lack good bettermanagement skills.
A typical day for me would be opening clinic up, making sure rooms were stocked and ready for patients. When patients start to arrive I would room patients promptly and collect all necessary information. – more... It would also include making sure the physician had everything they needed to manage their patient load. I have learned so much over the years, including but not limited to: pediatric orthopaeditic injuries and chronic illnesses, wound care, wound VAC applications, assessing patients for all areas of their health, not necessarily for the reason being seen, setting up sterile procedure trays, assisting physicians with minor office procedures, applying short arm and leg casts, and observing the physicians to meet their next need(s).
Management, there are good ones and there are those that need to be open to learning additional management skills. For me, a manager needs to be strong and supportive in ways that I can learn from my mistakes and feel like they stand behind me and recognize my achievements.
Co-workers are somewhat similar to management. Co-workers need to be team players, supportive, be approachable when help is needed and be approachable and open minded if you have a concern you would like to talk with them about.
The most difficult part of the job for me is when co-workers do not work as a team, are not working at their full capacity, are negative about the job and employer/manager, talk about others behind their backs and deescalate situations that may have been preventable.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the patients and their families. It gives me such a good feeling when they express their gratefulness for how they were treated and are happy when they leave. – less
