My days an hours varied, at first it was 5am -1:30p 5 on 2 off. Then I suggested 4 10hr days my dept supervisor loved the idea (5a-330p) & it stayed that way for about 10months. After 9 months, my hrs changed to 9a-5:30p M-F with a lead Tech title & a bit more pay to, for a little over a yr. A position opened in Client Services/Call Center. I was asked to apply for it. I got the position & LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!! I was in that dept for 3yrs. My hrs were 10:30a-7p M-F Holidays & weekends off. I spent 6 months traing a person to take my position in Clinical Lab but without lead tech title. All while still going to College Fulltime for my RN. After 5yrs I had to retire due to being injured on the job. I miss my co-workers & all but 1 supervisor.

Love my patients because I am a nurse first and a compassionate human being. I respect and admire my coworkers and physicians but because of an undercurrent of lack of job security it makes for a stressful environment. Many employees feel there is and was a "good ole boy" mentality in management all the way to the top, resulting in mismanagement of finances and put UAMS in a detrimental financial state.
