I work with smart people.
I feel appreciated and my efforts are recognized by those in my chain of command. Managers are supportive if things don't go as planned or if staff do something wrong. There is a great deal of support shown for staff.
My supervisor and manager empower me.
I do meaningful work every single day. I get to work with the most vulnerable among us and provide skilled, compassionate care.
The flexibility, and I get to do what I do best.
