    I have been working at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and teamwork, generally a happy place to work, getting to work with kids, doctors respect the nurses

    Cons

    Immediate supervisors don't seem to really care if you succeed at your job or not unless it affects their bottom line. I don't feel I can approach them about anything and if I need their help with something, I don't expect anything to be done for a couple weeks. Frustrating not being able to trust your boss.

    I worked at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This hospital VALUES their nurses and their contribution to the care and healing of their patients. They invest in you and your career with continuing education and opportunity for advancement. You also have an opportunity each year to advance on a clinical ladder and get a minimum $1200 bonus!

    Cons

    The girls in the south location ER are very cliquish and don't like outsiders. Tough group to crack.

    Advice to Management

    At the main hospital it's amazing, but you need to make sure that your units are the proper acuity. At least one floor is designated a Med/Surg, but the acuity of the patients is more like a step down.

    Pros

    Pediatrics benefits experience being important to the children you care for.

    Cons

    Children's Mercy is not for the faint of heart to assume every one is kind who works for a children's hospital was nieve. Vicious gossip..unsympathetic management..and feeling like literally one of 7000 is what your met with. I have heard extremely foul language between staff and towards familys..family's origin being taunted..and much more pitiful behavior you wouldn't expect from one of the best places to work in Kansas city.
