Not great pay but the work is great (Sharp Mary Birch LDR, PACU, Triage)

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-Staff teamwork and attitude (especially on night shift)
-Encourages staff internal certifications, advancement, and development
-Structured VERY well and policies are followed accross the board at ALL the Sharp Health Care facilities, so you know what to expect with ANY situation
-Continuity of care is apparent in the well managed structure and workflow of the unit (L&D/PACU/Triage)

Cons-Pay is the LOWEST in San Diego even though the Sharp Hospital system is one of the LARGEST in San Diego
-CURRENT LDR Management is VERY "play favorites" be prepared to WORK to move up if you are not the favorite of the Leads, AC's, and current LDR Manager
-Night shift is invisible in the eyes of management, even though ALL the computer down times are at night, etc
-Most Managers do not have their graduate degrees and some their undergraduate degree while MOST of the RN staff has at LEAST their BSN which, I feel, is incredibly unprofessional. Management should have at the minimum a BSN with a Masters in progress or attained. Management should not be less qualified than that of their staff that they are "managing."
-Sharp Healthcare should pay for classes that they require as certifications for their healthcare staff, ie BLS, ACLS, NRP, Intermediate/Advanced Fetal Monitoring...etc

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your advanced degree, don't play favorites, practice the "Sharp Experience" with your staff on a real level instead of this façade that the staff is "important to the unit" when in actuality, we are the ones that relay this Sharp Experience with our patients every minute of every day.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

UNHEALTHY WORK PLACE ENVIRONMENT

Patient Service Representative (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Committed and Value to Patient Care. Cons: They value patients but not employees. There is little or no chance for advancement, no matter how hard you work, you will feel "stuck" in… Advice to Senior Management: Give the Sharp Experience to the employees, not just the patients. Without the employees, you would not have your job. Appreciate & recognize the employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
