Enjoying working as a pharmacist to help patients with their medication, I find that it's rewarding to make a positi difference in a patient's health.
Outpatient Contract Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Nome, AK – November 4, 2015
Working as a pharmacist is very enjoyable to me. Everyday I work with other pharmacists and technicians to make sure that medications are filled and labelled correctly. Checking for allergies and drug interactions before dispensing medications to patients, I find that as a pharmacist I can help make a positive difference with the patients' health. I often make sure that the technicians who work with me know more about the prescriptions they work on everyday. The more they know the better job they will do at filling medications to make a difference in other peoples' lives. This is the most enjoyable part of my work, which is to be a part of a team to help patients get better. The hardest part of the job is to have disagreements on certain issues with people I work with. Overall practicing pharmacy is rewarding to me.

Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) – Nome, AK – December 13, 2014
Sometimes working there was a challenge, but with the help for my senior coworkers. I learned quite a bit like repairing J traps for sinks and how to change oxygen tanks. The cool about working there were coworkers and there stories of they're younger days.
Nice place to work. Good to give back to the community

Preparing dessert dishes first. Run the tray line, and delivered meals to patients. Learned how to puree foods, and speciel patient diets. Management could have improved. Hardest part was washing dishes and cleaning. Most enjoyable was preparing food for patients and making them look good.

Travel Nurse-Emergency Department RN (Current Employee) – Nome, AK – March 20, 2013
The hardest part of the job is getting used to being in an area where you can only fly in and out of. Sometimes you feel stuck so to speak because you can't just get in your vehicle and drive. You either have to buy a 4-wheeler or snow machine because there is only one place to rent a vehicle and it's at least $150 a day so you can't rent a vehicle all the time. I enjoyed being able to help transition into a new facility.
