Pros: i gained a great deal of knowledge and the work was rewarding
Cons: i was not fully supported in this new role for seph at that time.
A typical day was providing individual therapy,medication management and certain evenings throughout the year were allocated for group therapy. It was my first position as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and I was able to gain a wealth of knowledge with individuals who were diagnosed with neurodevelopment delays. It was a warm work environment. The – more... hardest part of my job was that I was the first Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on the SEPH campus and some were not open to this new role. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with children and educating families. – less

Administrative Assistant/Coordinator (Current Employee), baltimore, marylandSeptember 13, 2013
Pros: working with the children
Cons: insurance
A typical day at work for me is answering the phones and administrative duties as assigned. The hardest part of my job is not being backed up or supported by management when applicable. I have learned and still learning that things will not go the way you plan or invision, however, a job needs to get done. People will do whatever it takes to save themselves. – more... You will have co-workers that genuinely have your best interest at heart and those that don't. For the most part, I enjoy working here. The kids are fantastic and although you have your good days and bad days, I always see the sun shining. – less

Social Worker, LCSWC (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDAugust 7, 2013
Pros: free parking, education
Cons: bad management
I work in one of the day hospitals. The patients are great but the management is horrible. Always threatening to discipline workers makes it a very threatening environment. Workers are not treated equally and the boss has her favorites. Actively looking elsewhere.

Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDMay 12, 2013
Typical day consists of gathering information for morning treatment team rounds. This information is then presented and discussed to an interdisciplinary treatment team. Co-workers are great, work as a team. Enjoy working one on one with the attending physicians.

Hardest part can be the mental stress at times when acuity and census is high. Enjoy working – more... with the patients and seeing how their mood and health improves with the program. – less
