    My 1st nursing job... while it was an overall good experience - there are some "deal breaker" cons!

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great co-workers & loved the residents & their families. Unit mgrs were active in care of pts & very aware of the condition of the pts on their unit & overall team players.

    Cons

    Mgmt could be more involved with night shift - rarely any communication/feedback, commonly underestimated how busy it truly was on nights with all the extra preparation work & "catch-all" tasks that noc shift was responsible for. Upper mgmt didn't understand acuity vs numbers from unit to unit - overstaffed on one unit & understaffed on another bc would make shift assignments based on numbers not acuity. You would often bounce from unit to unit making it difficult to establish a routine & pts didn't like the inconsistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall good mgmt team, but need to give more feedback (both good & bad) to staff which encourages growth of your employees. Consider working a few night shifts from time to time. Hire someone with experience in scheduling to reduce high turnover rate r/t bouncing employees around.

    Pros

    They have health insurance but the plans aren't that great , how can you say people win gifts but then make them pay for it out of there check which you don't find out until you have a deduction coming out of your check that you had no idea was coming

    Cons

    Don't get close to anyone unless they are showing favoritism toward you because outside of that they will spread your business and some around the hospital

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some of the people who are in management don't derseve it because they rweallyt only care about themselves and not the people working under them or for them
