Preceptorship Nurse (Former Employee), New York, NY – September 12, 2014
Pros: opportunities to develop skill and learning
Cons: little support from management
This experience was very informative, I learned a good many skills in care of cancer patients with high acuity. Many were in isolation due to step cell transplants, prior to which their immune system was suppressed to insure acceptance of transplant.
Patients had central lines and port-a-cath to administer chemo and medications. Which needed diligent – more... care and sterile techniques in maintenance.
Many co-workers were helpful.
There was little time to learn nursing and getting certification for Chemo certification. Less then 2 mos on the floor. Preceptor had no prior experience in teaching, information was disconnected making it difficult to navigate workplace environment.

Cons: too far of a drive especially with beach traffic
Although at Mount Sinai I had a great working experience it was not my ream of work. I was a temp for a very long time till she finally hired someone but overall it was a great place to work with great people.
OB/GYN (Former Employee), New York, NY – March 25, 2014
I had the wonderful experience of working with well known physicians/ surgeons who took the time to teach me as if I was a medical student. Nurses who saw potential in me and took me under their wing and trained me. My experience at Mount Sinai was very valuable.
Surgical staff nurse (Former Employee), Miami Beach, FL – March 18, 2014
Pros: good cameraderie among employees
Cons: a little on the low salary side
A typical day at Mt. Sinai work will be very busy but fulfilling, lots of challenges from the doctors, patients and the surgical work itself. I learned a lot from this hospital in terms of teamwork, value of good work and patience. We have such a diverse culture in Mt, Sinai but we get along very well, we assist each other and look after one another – more... and helping those who are in need of assistance or help at the moment. The hardest part of the job would be to have a very demanding surgeons and patient but we see it as part of the job being in the medical field but it is overcome by the patients, co employees and surgeons who appreciate good teamwork and work when they see one. – less
