I have been working at Driscoll Children's Hospital

Pros

The patient's are awesome. The benefits package is good. The nursing staff is like a second family.

Cons

It is a teaching facility, one is constantly dealing with new resident physicians. The CEO has designated himself the CNO, and placed a radiology technician with a Masters in business over the entire operations, so the nursing has very little protection or advocacy. There is no holiday pay. Equipment is outdated.

    I worked at Driscoll Children's Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employees genuinely seemed more positive than anywhere else I'd worked. Additionally, the pay was better for my position than for similar positions at other hospitals.

    The pharmacy leadership dynamic has been in flux for some time, leading to a shaky internship program.
