Hospital Clinical Assistant (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYJanuary 2, 2015
Roswell Park is a great place to work, I really do enjoy working with the patients in such a hands on atmosphere. I just want to proceed in my career aspirations and having decided that nursing is not for me, I want to further my experience in the medical field in a more administrative role.

Critical care staff nurse (Former Employee), Buffalo NYApril 2, 2014
Pros: benefits, continuing education, advancement.
Cons: at times no breaks, management.
I was charge nurse of a 15 bed unit on a intermediate care unit/telemetry floor. In addition, we watched over 18 telemetry monitors throughout the hospital. I was employed here for 3 years and learned just about everything I know. I enjoyed the atmosphere and co-workers. The hospital was magnet accredited and we took pride in having earned that. The most difficult parts of this job was dealing with the death of patients and the vicious cycle of cancer itself. Having to witness patients and family members go through the stages of grief is a notion that I witnessed all too frequently. However, as bad as it may have gotten at times, I also was there to witness miracles. I was able to send people home or off our floor because they had beat the cancer. Working as an RN really has the most largest rewards. I was able to be at the bedside with patients at their absolute worst and help them be their best in a terrible scenario.

Keyboarding Specialist (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: benefits right away, union
Cons: strict place to work
this was a hard job to have even though I was a Keyboard Specialist, it was on the bone marrow transplant unit and everyday someone would come in with a slim chance of making it to someone loosing the fight against cancer.
I would enter patient information in the system if they were just entering our floor or leaving the floor. I would help the nurses order blood work. I ordered supplies that were also needed. Sometimes I would fill in at the clinic on the same floor.
