“I loved being in the office with all the providers, nurses, and management and learning how all of it works together and how everyone kind of depends on each other. Seeing how all my coworkers help each other out and try to get the best care for the patient was an awesome experience for me. I am a healthcare management major at Appalachian State University and it was a great experience to work in a doctors' office and work beside all these professionals. I learned so much in a short amount of time. It was a just a temporary position to help the facility with their workload after switching to a new system. ”

“I love working with the residents; they all have amazing stories to share about their lives and willingly tell me information about their health that lead me to care for them better. I also love working with my co-workers. The nurses at the Foley Center are extremely knowledgeable and were willing to answer any questions I have during my time here. ”
