"I started working at ECHN at age 16; I have worked in numerous departments within the hospital both as a nurse and nonclinical employee, giving me the opportunity for a lot of growth and development. As an RN preceptor, I make sure my orientees are given both autonomy and support throughout their orientation. I always try to seek out the best learning opportunities for my orientees to help them succeed."
"I like working at Manchester Memorial Hospital because it’s a great community hospital and I love the staff and teamwork; all the nurses and management work well together and are always willing to help, no matter what."
"I started volunteering at Manchester Memorial Hospital when I was in high school; I loved the environment of the hospital. I applied at the kitchen and worked there for 10 years before I got my LPN license. To me ECHN is family; I practically grew up working for ECHN and I love every moment of it. I would tell a friend interested in a job here to definitely apply because there is respect in ECHN. I believe every job should have mutual respect for each other and the job that we do and ECHN has that respect. I would tell them there are opportunities for growth in ECHN; I began working in the kitchen and now am a nurse helping people."
