    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Anchorage, AK

    I have been working at Alaska Native Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are very supportive to Alaska Natives and their family, the "Customer Owners" are given great care and assisted through the process of treatment and needs assessment like no other place I have seen.

    Cons

    IF you are not Alaska Native then as an employee you are expendable and ill supported, I have seen many examples of favoritism and nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people that will stay and improve your facility, it is great to encourage and grow the expertise of Alaska Native but at the expense of the community and employees is not appropriate.

    I have been working at Alaska Native Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    10 paid holidays/year.
    Always open positions.

    Cons

    Always open positions. No funds for education. Unit educator does not perform education for unit. No consistant orientation for new staff on unit. Sink or swim. ANTHC Nurse recruiter is either incompetent or lies. Understaffed on regular basis. Can't get/keep experienced staff. Overstaffed with inexperienced/new nurses...not a good mix of knowledge. Pay is significantly less than other 2 hospitals in the area. Too many in management positions, with no one understanding what the other is doing. Very disorganized. Constantly running out of supplies and central supply says they don't know when new stock will come in. How can you run out of blood pressure cuffs????

    It is ran like other government agencies- too many people in management/administrative positions and a huge waste of resources, money and otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run the hospital like other successful hospitals, cut management staff, either pay educators to educate their units or get rid of them.
