Pros

Friendly environment with diverse job opportunities. Staff are well informed of issues that affect healthcare. My schedule is flexible and the medical benefits are excellent.

Cons

Comparible positions at other institutions pay higher. There are plenty of chances for professional development, but many of the available positions posted are lateral moves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an open mind. The realm of nursing is huge with many diverse people.

I know there are necessities with regard to charting and "paperwork", but all this takes away from the care of the patient.

    Can be a great place if you go with whatever they throw at you but don't bother registering a complaint in HR

    Pros

    The Mission is pervasive throughout the hospital and there is a general feeling of everyone doing a good job with an active involved upper management

    Cons

    Things are swept under the rug, a subversive undercurrent seems to trickle down to the real worker bees and there is a feeling of not being on solid ground. Employees and even managers are just up and gone with a big hush.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to the worker bees not just your middle managers who are over them.

    Pros

    Shared governance, applying for magnet certification, multiple certifications, Management pushes education and certification of nurses, tuition grants are available and certification applications and exams are paid for.

    Cons

    Nurse to patient ratios close to unmanageable, census is rarely stable, recertification exams are not paid for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always think about how you would want your loved ones cared for and the how patient care can suffer with each extra patient under one nurse's care. We may be only able to get the basics accomplished, excellent care sometimes means some patients need a lot of extra time that at these ratios is not going to happen.
