Respiratory Care Practitioner (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – February 18, 2019
Management wasn't the best in the Respiratory Department, but what they lacked the hospital made up for in resources to it's employees. The benefits were great, you received half off tuition at Penn State for any degree if you were a full time employee. They were up to date with their technology and equipment.
great place for advancement and learning opportunities

Everything honestly depends on where you are hired and who your boss is. If your lab doesn't have funding you aren't going to be paid well. It runs the same for management. Most PIs don't train their people, the other lab members train new members. The only real advancement that I have seen is gotten through being here for a while or getting a Masters or PhD.
Hershey Medical Center is the ideal place to complete a pharmacy residency.
PGY-1 Pharmacy Resident (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – January 6, 2019
A typical day at Hershey Medical Center as a pharmacy resident consisted of patient care on a multidisciplinary team to optimize medication use. I took part in several committees and completed research projects to contribute to hospital protocols.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – November 17, 2018
I have enjoyed my time here. A more lucrative opportunity arose which made it difficult to leave such a great place. Being a Union hospital I felt secure and stable in this position. Loved working at a teaching hospital. The rapport with other nurses and doctors was great. This rapport extended to other departments such as social work, OP/PT, Chaplin services. I have learned medical surgical nursing of post operative neurosurgical patients as well as women care, labor and delivery. Absolutely loved labor and delivery, most situations were positive outcomes therefore very rewarding.
teamwork, union, stability, rapport with coworkers and doctors, teaching hospital
