    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

    Flexible, Magnet, Good Education programs, Great training, Good benefits

    Cons

    Everything goes through a committee which then takes a long time for implementation. Off site parking. Pay is below the average around town. No room for advancement in leadership or if there is a position upper management already has "hand picked" someone for replacement. There is room for NP's to move up, but I have heard their pay scale is poor in comparison to other facilities. They are not treated unilaterally with physicians.

    Advice to Management

    To not take so long to make a positive change that will affect the patient in a positive manner. One change 2 years to accomplish that's too long.

    Off-site parking. I have never worked at a place where I had to park in a separate location and ride a shuttle bus to the job.

    Update on-site parking.
