Good exposure to the working environment and working skills

A very busy environment,sl sometimes fairly quiet and not so busy. Good cooperation with colleagues, unless one has unsolved personal problems or work stress becomes too much for one and they begin to behave neg behave negative. I learned a lot of procedures and med I skills. And a lot about work ethics. I enjoyed the practical work very very much and serving. The challenging aspects are just political which greatly affect the attitudes of the staff members.l Therefore I hardly find interest in working in that field.

Pros: Great salary once you become a qualified professional nurse.
Cons: Too many politics and conflicts even during emergencies.

Working in an environment where staff is misusing supplies and good results showed after a year.

Was very difficulty at the beginning when I started working in this Entity. This where there not rules or polices implemented and monitor to ensure that they are adhered to . I had to sit down with my CEO and explain the situation and ask for support to ensure that changes that I'm going to make will be effective to ensure improvement and indeed that was agreed by my CEO. Absenteeism was one of the problems and also misuse of the supplies due to poor or planning. Procurement plan was the first thing that we needed to focus on and also to put measure in in place to remind staff about consequences of the absenteeism in the work place. all my plan s were successful, we are not perfect but at least there is huge improvement that one can see compare to the time I started in this institution.

Pros: Make change and create great environment for staff to learn
Cons: Managers that are not able to deal with their staff accordingly where planning is not adhered to
