    Pros

    Free CEU's, however, you are required to have ACLS, and you have to pay for that certification. computerized charting, Barcode med administration,

    Cons

    Dangerous staffing levels on the cardiology floor sometimes, and float nurses often have to take patients with vasoactive drips they aren't familiar with due to staffing issues. Oncology sometimes has float nurses take pt on IV immunoglobin that they aren't familiar with due to staffing also. Not all nurses are certified with epidurals, yet end up taking patients with epidurals and spinal blocks. Experienced nurses often work 4 or more 12 hour shifts in a row, because management needs "seasoned nurses" on the floor, but nurses with less experience get the schedules they want. Frequent middle management turnover, leading to more and more changes in arbitrary rules and protocols on the floors that aren't in the policy's but will get you discliplined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An open door policy or anonymous email service for staff to address concerns about middle management without fear of retaliation. Better staffing ratios. Make oncology and cardiology specialties, like they really should be. Most brand new med-surg nurses do NOT have the competencies to recognize a 1-2 postop open heart who may be having tamponade, or react quickly with a pt with ITP receiving IVIG who may be having a reaction. Scheduling policies that is friendlier to staff. Try to keep seasoned nurses, instead of letting them quit in disgust and hiring brand new grads every year. The new grads will burn out and quit as soon as they get there 1-2 year experience, and the cycle will keep repeating. Aim a little higher this time. Maybe not Magnet status...just something better, for the patients safety.
