Pros: if you are a full time instructor, you get educational benefits, helping students in my profession acheive their goals is the best pro i have.
Cons: adjunct employees recieve no healthcare benefits, also when a program loses students, it must also lose instructors......
Sullivan commits itself to the success of each individual student. Small classes keeps everyone on a name basis with the instructor, and the instructor has more time to work with students
Diverse classes keeps the teaching styles new and up-to-date
A typical day at work: I come in and welcome students, most of the classes I teach are hands on, so I work with the students as they compound non-sterile products such as suppositories or lip balm. The next class is Sterile compounding and consists of the students making chemo and narcotic IV admixtures.
I typically don't see many of my co-workers as they are in class when I am in class, but I would say our group of instructors are very knowledgeable and love the work we do here at Sullivan.
The hardest part of the job is watching bright students struggle because of non-school related things in their lives.
The best thing about my job is when a student gets it, or when they completed the program and they get their first interview, or just when a student looks at me and says "I couldn't have done it without you, Ms. Glin."
