Long shifts, not much work
Helping out patients can be very rewarding and was, but the amount of patients willing to seek help and ask questions is small. Waiting tirelessly for hours at a time can drag the day out. Generally the patients that are helped are genuinely satisfied and grateful for the help provided.
Energetic and Life Changing
My hours are 7A-730P. Most of the day is pretty busy. Since it's a post surgical floor, we have to get our patients up and moving quickly. Many, if not all patients, have multiple surgical drains, such as neobladders, ileo conduits, JP drains, chest drains, foleys, to name a few. We still do most orders by paper and that can be overwhelming at times.My co-workers are very supportive and caring. I never feel alone and there is always someone there to help. My management team is supportive and loves advanced education. We are a small unit, and it feels like a family.Hardest part of the job would be the physical labor and long hours. Most enjoyable is seeing my patients leave healthier than when they came in and working with amazing people.

Interning at Fox Chase cancer center was an incredibly valuable experience. I gained experience in all aspects of marketing, from basic office duties to video production. My superiors and co-workers were friendly and gave me tasks that challenged me on a daily basis.
Videogrpaher and editor
Shoot and edit video for patient infromation and education. Most of this content is web based. I have learned to how to post and manage our video content for the you tube channel we have . We are a small department with only six employees. We supply Fox Chase with print, photo and video content. I have always said that my hardest part of my day is driving to work. The most enjoyable part of my day is knowing that I have helped cancer patients gain knowleadge about their cancer.
They are very friendly and care about every patient as an individual. They work hard to make all patients feel comfortable.
Information on different types of cancer were always available to those who seeked information.
I learnt a lot at the Fox Chase Cancer Center during my senior internship. I was a Health Educator who provided patients, families, and people from the community with information on various types of cancer. Information was always available in booklet form or through research from different cancer websites. The experience taught me to be more confident and more knowledgable of cancers I never heard about. Fox Chase is a great place to work and help others.
