Exceptional learning environment with outstanding educational support.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Iowa City, IA – July 10, 2016
Working at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, I have had the opportunity to work with many great health care providers. Interacting with nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, and doctors on a daily basis. I have learned how healthcare is an integrative process. As a nurse, I am encouraged to attend in-services, educational seminars, and stay current on my certifications and licenses. In addition, I am provided one-thousand dollars a semester to go towards classes I am enrolled in that advance my nursing practice. In all, I feel very supported in my career and educational endeavors.
Working in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, I deal with patients of all types of conditions. I take care of postoperative patients from craniotomies and angiograms, hysterectomies, renal transplants, and more. With the diversity of patients, I have learned to adapt and prioritize the most critical and also know what to look for. Said this, working with this diverse population, I have also really grown to appreciate the culture in which I work. Learning about different ethnicities of patients while caring for them has been a rewarding, insightful experience.
Great work environment
