Outreach Education Events Coordinator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 24, 2014
I am very proud to work for Seattle Children's. The people are so passionate about what they do that a create's an amazing working cultures. There is a lot of opportunity for an individual to take advantage through on line courses the offer for personal growth as well as for your professional growth.

Nursing Supervisor, Emergency Department (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 18, 2014
When I began nursing school, I always dreamed of working for Seattle Children's Hospital and I have had the honor of working there for over 14 years. I have loved seeing the Emergency Department grow and change with our patient need, but have recognized my desires to continue to grow myself professionally and see what other organizations can teach me. I have the privilege to work in a job where I only have to work 3-4 days a week, but unfortunately the hardest part of my job is flipping myself from evening shift to day shift. In addition, working primarily evening shift, i have had limited contact with other departments. My biggest accomplishments working at SCH is that over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to develop our computer downtime process. I have helped develop a standardized process that all staff know what to do and have easy to follow jobaides to guide their work. I have lead our ED team to create an Emergency Preparedness plan and have lead quarterly drills in the department. Seeing our staff become more comfortable with these things, gives me a sense of joy and accomplishment.
Audio/Visual Intern (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 11, 2014
Get their and start evaluating emails and answering phone calls. I learned that they connect and have meeting through TV and it makes communication much easier. The management was great he was a great boss. If you had a question he was always opened to help out. My co-workers were awesome they were very commemorative each other. The hardest part of the job was not being able to solve the incident on my own. The most enjoyable was being able to see the kids smile when they are healthy and not in pain anymore.
Technician in the OR (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 8, 2014
HR and OR Management would rather promote an air of hostility, complacency and ignorance than engage with staff to make it a better place to work. Need I say more? I have had some rotten jobs over the years but have never been treated with less respect by an employer than I was at Seattle Children's.
being part of a team helping children overcome disease and injury!

Playroom Volunteer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 20, 2014
I cleaned toys, books, movies, magazines, etc. I organized the playroom and set up activities for patients to do both inside and outside. I helped participate in sports with patients. I also went to individual patients rooms and talked with them and provided support for them and their families. The hardest part of my job was to talk to older kids who were struggling with their situations. The most enjoyable part of the job was holding babies and comforting them in their rooms and giving the parents and other staff a much needed break.
Rehabilitation RN (Former Employee) – Seattle – July 19, 2013
I have not had a better career to date than when I worked at Seattle Children's Hospital. If I did not move to continue my education, I would still be there. Although I worked on the rehabilitation floor, working with children and families managing brain and spinal cord injuries, watching children improve and adapt to limitations was very rewarding. I especially enjoyed when the families would return to visit after discharge to say hello. The rehabilitation team made up of medical staff, nurses, and therapists is very strong, cohesive group that works well together to provide optimal care for patients and families. Families acknowledged the teamwork and always appreciated the care provided.
