"Best part of the job is working with the patients !!"
Patient Care Technician in Birmingham:
Pros: What I like most about working at UAB is meeting the diverse patient population, and providing care to some of them. Seeing them recover and progress from trauma is very rewarding. The hospital offers a lot to help with working in a stressful environment, such as: yoga, hospital walking trail, health rewards, nutrition and wellness classes, and mental health therapy. The educational assistance program is a plus, you only pay for your books, online fees, student parking, and other fees.
Cons: Poor leadership and communication across the board. Not everyone grasp UAB core values, they speak them, but actions always speak louder words. Managers show preferential treatment based on race and if you fit into the unit's click. You have a lot of people with degrees and titles, but no leadership skills. The really great nurses are the ones who worked as CNA/Techs while completing nursing school.
