fast-paced, collaborative, highly skilled nursing teams
Nursing Director- Ambulatory Surgery Center (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR 72202 – May 3, 2018
My over 16 years of nursing and leadership at Arkansas Children's has brought so much joy and satisfaction to my life and hopefully to the many patients, families, physicians and employees I had the honor to care for, work with and grow wtih over the years.
I worked in the ED so it was normally always fast paced.
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 9, 2018
On an average day, I mostly handled clerical duties and saw lots of traumas come throughout the emergency department. Although I saw many unfortunate events, it was a constant reminder of how blessed I truly am.
I met really amazing people, and saw lots of patients make great transformations.
I've witnessed gossiping managers and I think it's awful.
Family Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR 72202 – March 17, 2018
There is a lack of opportunity of growth with this organization. Arkansas Children's Hospital has loss sight of its employees as being people first. There is a major focus on profit rather than employee engagement and retention. The pay rate is appropriate in regards to previous work experience and schooling.
Patient Information Assistant/Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – February 27, 2018
A typical day is good for the exceptions of constant or daily changes in rules and procedures which is difficult to keep up with. Basically the whole managment works using micro managment but lacks communication. This I would say is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job until recent years was knowing I had a hand in helping the children that are seen. I have learned over the years how to handle upset families over the phone and giving reassurance.

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 25, 2018
Unstable work environment in due to ineffective communication and not enough team players for this particular clinic. Overall the last department I worked in was more structured and more room for upward mobility.
BMET III (Clinical Engineering/IT Hybrid) (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 13, 2018
I love working there! We save babies!! the culture is family orientated, technically focused, and strives for growth to meet the health care needs to AR's children. You feel the passion for children when you walk in the door. I am saddened to leave but I need to be with my children in AZ.
Grill Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 10, 2018
I started and I instantly felt relaxed. I felt like the job was somewhere I could be at for a while. The managers and chefs where down to earth and very understanding. It sometime felt like one big happy family..
RN (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – December 21, 2017
It was nice to just have pediatric patients. The acuity to nurse ratio was usually high. I feel that made for a high stress level. You frequently were "pulled" to work in another area without the knowledge or training/inservice to give safe and good care.
