Lecturer (Current Employee), Brookings, SDJuly 23, 2014
South Dakota State University is a great place to work. It is a Div I school that has the feel of a much smaller environment. It is easy to get to know anyone, all the way up to the president.

Good benefits, but not pay
Facilities & Services Worker (Current Employee), Brookings, SDJuly 23, 2014
cleaning different buildings on campus, but I always like to be busy and being day-time facility worker I don't have the challenging and busy work. More of the office cleaning is at night. I like to be busy to make the day go by fast.

University that is well known for their nursing program
Clinical Instructor (Former Employee), Brookings, SDMarch 31, 2014
-A typical day would include arriving at the unit early to find the most complicated patients that the students would learn the most from. I also familiarized myself with these patients and made myself a copy of their schedules so I could try to be with each student at vital learning opportune times. I would then pair the students with the floor nurse – more... for the day and float between students throughout the clinical shift. We would then end the shift with a group debriefing to discuss what was learned during the day and a time to ask additional questions.
-I learned that different people learn things in different ways and that it is important to adjust my teaching method to provide the best education to that individual.
-I did not work closely with management, however the instructor that I reported to was very helpful and easy to approach with questions.
-The hardest part of the job was managing my time during the clinical shift with each student.
-The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the students make correlations with their text book learning to the clinical situation. – less

Good group here but college students are messy and don't show respect for their dorms so usually a big mess but sometimes they will appreciate your work and try to keep it cleaner.
