Let our employees share with you how they have advanced by reaching out for new challenges; how they have been supported by hospital benefits and programs; and how they have participated in the hospital's ongoing innovation in support of patient care.
"I started working at the Mass General Emergency Department as a Patient Care Associate (Nursing Assistant) while I was a Nursing student at Simmons College. On my first day, I was just overwhelmed. I had never been to Mass General and it seemed huge, with so many people, and it was extremely busy and fast-paced. Yet at the same time I instantly knew I wanted to be a part of it. Twenty years later, as Chief Nurse Practitioner for Mass General’s ED Observation Units, I am doing what I dreamed of doing as a student – yet my journey as a Nurse at Mass General has also been more varied and rewarding than I could have imagined...."
"Mass General is a great place to learn about kitchen operations – Nutrition and Food Services at the hospital is a huge operation. On any given day the Patient Tray Line is preparing meals for 500-600 patients, making sure that patients who have special diets get everything on their tray they are supposed to have."
"In November 2010, after completing my medical assisting program, I left my family and friends in New Hampshire and moved to Boston to begin my career as a Medical Assistant at Mass General’s Internal Medicine Associates (IMA). The move was a little scary for me because I didn’t know anyone in the area, but my IMA colleagues in Urgent Care quickly became my close friends."
