Web Developer (Former Employee) – Remote – April 6, 2017
I was a remote employee. But, everyone I had the pleasure of working with was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their work. Their department of Learning Sciences and Science Education was truly inspiring.
I have thoroughly enjoyed attending Vanderbilt. This college has prepared me for upcoming boards and job placement. I have found that it has been easy to complete all assignments and balance school life with my family life. I would recommend this University to anyone looking to become a Nurse Practitioner.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 2, 2017
Everyone at Vanderbilt University is like walking into an extended family, people who truly care about their employees and helping them learn and grow within the university. With plenty of opportunity to learn and take on new and exciting responsibility.

- must be able to manage time well, enjoyed being able to choose my own schedule on when to grade papers - a lot of work at times, not a lot at others, I learned to plan ahead and spread out work so that assignments would be graded fairly
OR Technician (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – March 15, 2017
I worked for 16 years and I started in Supplies and it a great job experience I learned a lot , the department had real supportive managers and the moral of the employees were very high. I advanced to another position within 2 years with more responsibilities and better pay but after they made the mistake in 2013 when the hospital decided to lay off all great deal of their employees everything changed new management wasn't qualified for positions that their were hired for and the moral was depleted and in my opinion the patients suffers because employees are unhappy with their jobs...
Vanderbilt University was very helpful, warm and useful science surrounding. Everybody tried to help me in my first steps in Molecular Endocrinology/Immunology lab.. My boss let me be completely independent , and it was enjoyable.
I have worked at Vanderbilt several times. I keep going back because it is a well rounded work environment. I had to leave this last time to care for a family member with renal cell carcinoma. Vanderbilt is a very fast paced environment and they focus on continuing education. You never feel like you in over your head. You have many resources available to you at all times including: the intranet, your charge nurses, colleagues, and even your clinical manager.
Excellent health insurance, begins day 1 of employment
Needed more Care partners (CNT's), but that is a common shortage amongst all hospitals
