Amy A., RN, MSN

"I choose Yale New Haven Health because of the growth opportunities."

Amy’s career at Yale New Haven Health began even before she graduated from college. She first gained valuable experience as a student nurse assistant at Yale New Haven Hospital, then she accepted a position after becoming a registered nurse. Throughout her career she has steadily advanced into various nursing leadership positions with help from programs for hospital employees. Amy used tuition reimbursement to complete her master’s degree in nursing leadership and management. She also took free courses offered through Yale New Haven’s Institute for Excellence (IFE) as she advanced into management roles. These courses provided Amy with the leadership skills needed to obtain her current position as off-shift administrative manager at Bridgeport Hospital Milford Campus while also opening the door to professional relationships with peers from other Yale New Haven Health hospitals. “I encourage people to work at Yale New Haven Health because of the potential to grow throughout your career. There are endless possibilities and the support we receive paves the way for us to be very successful.”

Jordan T. RT(R)

"I choose Yale New Haven Health because of the tuition reimbursement."

Jordan was born at Lawrence + Memorial (L+M) Hospital and raised in the area, so after graduating from school, L+M was the only hospital she wanted to apply to. "I was adamant about being involved and giving back to my community. Today, as a Radiology technologist, helping patients is by far the most rewarding part of my job. A close second, of course, would be working with so many dedicated and caring technologists, as they’ve become like family. I’m also grateful that L+M offers a tuition reimbursement program. This helped me become certified in a second diagnostic imaging modality, so I’ve been growing my career. Taking images for patients enables me to touch a lot of lives. That’s meaningful because patients are here with us because something’s not right, so my goal is to do everything I can to make their experience as positive as it can be."

Mario C., RN

"I choose Yale New Haven Health because of the growth opportunities."

Mario started his YNHH journey in 2014 as a volunteer, spending time with geriatric patients through the hospital’s Elder Horizons program. He was hired as business associate in 2015 and worked on different oncology units. While working, he earned a BS degree in exercise science and became a rehabilitation associate. With encouragement from his colleagues, Mario enrolled in nursing school and became a registered nurse in March 2022. “I greatly value Yale New Haven Health. I have been able to work through various clinical and administrative positions and have seen the different career opportunities here. I always knew I wanted to help people in a hospital setting, but I wasn't certain in what capacity. The friends I made at Yale New Haven Hospital helped prepare me for my current career, where I couldn't be happier.”

Patricia W., NP

"I choose Yale New Haven Health because of the sense of family here."

Patricia joined Yale New Haven Health in 1984 as a new graduate RN at Greenwich Hospital. She continued her education while working and became a nurse practitioner. “I was one of the first nurse practitioners here when I graduated in 1989,” she said. After practicing in several different areas, working in Occupational Health is one of the most fulfilling roles she’s had in her career. “Part of that is the work, helping and treating our employees,” she said. “But the other part is the location because the people here are amazing. You never walk down a hall and don’t see someone smiling. It sounds a little cliched, but here it’s the truth and I think that why there are so many people who have been here for 30 or 40 years.bI feel like I have a direct impact on the employee experience,” she said of her work in Occupational Health. “I want to be sure that everyone who comes in and sees me leaves knowing that they’ve received great care and won’t think twice about coming back.”

"I choose Yale New Haven Health because of the growth opportunities."

In 2016 Paula was hired as a food service associate at Yale New Haven Hospital. Inspired by the variety of professional development opportunities, she began a steady climb into clinical roles with the support of her supervisors and peers. Within the first few years Paula used the tuition reimbursement program to enroll in YNHH’s Pharmacy Technician Training Program and was offered a position as a pharmacy technician after graduation. She advanced her way up the pharmacy career ladder and was promoted into a role in the operating room. Now Paula is using YNHH’s tuition reimbursement again to earn her nursing degree. “I tell people that Yale New Haven Hospital provides so many opportunities for growth. In just a few years I’ve been able to transition into different roles all within the same organization.”
