Credentialed Medical Assistant
The best thing about my job is getting to witness how strong and compassionate people truly are. I work with a great group of people who understand the meaning of teamwork.
I started with UNC Rex in May of 2016 as a Credentialed Medical Assistant and was promoted to Team Lead Credentialed Medical Assistant in 2018. My manager encourages growth within organization and mentors me regarding future promotions. It makes a difference to work for a company who believes in their employees.
Staff Nurse, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit
UNC Health offers classes to help learn and refresh skills. And they offer reimbursement for continuing education. They also offer a new graduate program for nurses fresh out of nursing school, which really helps adapting to your new RN role.
As a nurse in the unit, Samantha cares for patients about to go into surgery or patients who have just gotten out of surgery. It’s work that takes the ability to stay calm under pressure, handle the unpredictable and understand the needs of all patients. She points to the recent expansion of the new heart and vascular hospital as giving her the chance to work on the cutting edge of medical technology. The new types of equipment and devices help her and her team bring the best possible cardiac care to the people of North Carolina.
Home Services Staff RN
People who want to grow and learn should bring their careers to UNC. The system is constantly growing and there are opportunities everywhere.
As a home care nurse, Debbie spends most of her time on the road. From carrying out assessments to educating patients on self-care for their chronic diseases, she never has a typical day. But she knows she’ll bring the best care she can to the patients she helps and the community she serves.
