Patient Experience (PX) Ambassador

June - July 2019 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

During my time as an intern at Banner Health, I enjoyed working with the staff in the emergency department, meeting and assisting patients, as well as being helpful to the nurses by routinely checking on patients. Furthermore, I enjoyed learning how employees are expected to conduct themselves when in a hospital setting and creating relationships with the staff members I worked with every day.

What I wish was different

I wish that my interning experience had been a paid opportunity and that there was more of a shadowing opportunity already set in place for interns.

Advice

If I could give someone advice about interning at Banner Health, I would tell them that it is a great position with lots of opportunities to learn about what it is like to work in a healthcare field. Furthermore, I would instruct them to keep an open mindset and be adaptable and willing to expand one's skill set as often as possible.

Registered Nurse

July 2017 - December 2018 • Mesa, AZ

What I liked

The teamwork on the oncology floor is amazing. Everyone helps everyone and it’s a very close-knit work family.

What I wish was different

Although I completely understand the business aspect of a hospital, once we became a Level 1 Trauma Center, our focus shifted to how fast we could open up a bed; that is not why I got into nursing and one of the main reasons I looked for work elsewhere.

Advice

Ask questions about the new grad program; make contact with your educator on a regular basis so that you don’t get lost in the shuffle!!
