I really enjoy working here. I get to work and get report on my patients. Go meet and assess my patients. Administer meds, follow MD orders.
ANMC has fun activities like snowshoe sofball and great potlucks.
ANMC is a fun place to work. It is a newer hospital and it has some of the most amazing native art throughout the building, The stairwells have tiny pieces of ivory art that has all been done by hand. The hospital it truly a museum. The gift shop has earring that are mad from hand crafted by women who have reached eighty. One such wonderful lady has an art display at the Smithsonian. I would love to say her name but maybe whoever read this can go to ANMC and learn for themselves. I would love to still be in Alaska but my husband cannot tolerate the cold. It is a great place to visit and the most friendly people around.
People were friendly and respect your dignity.
A typical day at work was just not typical but to learn new things everyday was a challenge. I have learned that you learn something new everyday. Management was good in training, because they made sure what they provide for every employee was either beneficial for the entire company or your job. My co-workers were respected with dignity, integrity and see you as who you are and not what you are not. And not put on a false smile and later turn around and did not care about you. The hardest part of the job was working in a basement with no windows and proper ventilation. The most enjoyable part of the job was coming to work and enjoy each new innovation.
Enjoyed learning a new culture.
The Alaska Native medical Center introduced me to the Alaska native culture. It was a good place to learn the Native culture and the health concerns associated with them. Also being the highest level health facility in Alaska gave me the opportunity to work with high acuity traumas. The only reason I left so fast was the opportunity to become a flight nurse.
Terrible management and benefits
A terrible experience, ICU with very few experienced RN's.
A great uniformed service
I loved the work and all the challenges that were presented.
