    I worked at Children's of Alabama full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great hospital, providing excellent healthcare to children.

    Cons

    The new nursing administration (at the top) began making changes in 2011 that greatly impacted the overall morale and satisfaction of the nursing staff; and also hindered their ability to provide the excellent nursing care that Children's Hospital has always been known for.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the goals and focus of the hospital moving forward. Bring back the positive morale of the nurses, who are the engine that can make or break the facility.
