Adjunct Nursing Professor (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 18, 2013
This is a good place for a new nursing adjunct professor to start. Staff are helpful, supportive and wiling to guide new staff. Management is helpful but does not micromanage. They encourage new ideas and methods to teach students. The hardest part of the job was saying good bye to the students. The most enjoyable part was watching the students grow from no experience and total fear of the hospital to "baby" nurses, confident in the new skills they had learned. A typical day involved working with the students and guiding them through the basic nursing skills and providing situations that would allow them experience in various aspects of nursing.

This is a most enjoyable job. The company has great benefits and is able to work with busy life schedules. A typical day for me consist of going to a few meetings and then getting work done in my office and having the occasional student stop by. The most enjoyable part of the job is the atmosphere and people i get to work with.

HCC offers an ever changing work environment. Coworkers and management are wonderful people to work with. The students are inspirational and the experience gained from working here will last a lifetime.
A typical work day starts with assigning the students to their clinical area with in the hospital. I then follow their progress with the care they are providing for patients. Over a ten week periods, the focus is their critical thinking and technical skills.The nursing student is taught to participate in grand rounds, providing information about the patients to the multidisciplinary team. This is an enjoyable job, It is satisfying and rewarding, I am happy to know I am making a difference to a future nurse.
A simple and honestly very slow job, at least for my department, which is the Academic Affairs building. At times things would be a bit hectic when it came to student concerns. But overall not much happened truthfully.
A typical day is helping instructions have smooth lectures or labs. You'll see students rushing to class, studying in the lobby or taking breaks. For the most part management is on point with their duties helping the employees with minor or major issues. We have a variety of all cultures here, very welcoming. The hardest part about my job is when my assistance is being pulled by many people at once on demand attention. The most enjoyable part of my job loving what I do. I'm constantly learning and shadowing in all departments especially chemistry.
This is one of the worse managed colleges. The president received a vote of no confidence, yet he refuses to resign. The president was arrested for DUI, and nothing is done. The adjuncts have the lowest pay of any school. They tried to intimidate the adjuncts from forming a union, which was successful.
It is easy due to having been there so long.
Everything else: low pay, no respect, no concern for adjunct faculty.

Community College. Taught business courses, so it had less of an academic feel, since the students taught were being trained for immediate employment. Enjoyed the interaction with students and other faculty, including faculty in other academic areas. Staff and Administration supportive. However, funding left me to find and pay for software and training materials out of pocket.
