Former Employee - Student Nurse Technician in Tucson, AZ
Former Employee - Student Nurse Technician in Tucson, AZ

I worked at Southern Arizona VA Health Care System full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The benefits and pay are better than any other hospital in Tucson by far. It's basically impossible to be fired from this hospital and they give you automatic raises every two years.

Cons

Nurses and CNAs are severely understaffed. The morale in the hospital is extremely low because of this and there is a high level of turn over in management.

    Pros

    Completely flexible schedule, good experience for resume, better pay than regular CNA jobs. Good opportunity for students in nursing school to get experience and pay bills.

    Cons

    Place is has quite a few gold brickers. Hospital is older, small rooms, no benefits for SNTs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really needs a big change in management to clear out the dead weight and inspire workers.

    Former Employee - Nutrition, Health, and Wellness Workstudy in Tucson, AZ
    Former Employee - Nutrition, Health, and Wellness Workstudy in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Southern Arizona VA Health Care System as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The position was a work study position that I "created" by seeking out dietetic leadership with in the SAVAHCS. I worked under the Food Services Director and she helped form connections with other RDs throughout the hospital and I completed several rotations from renal, diabetic, preventive, and nutrition counseling for in-pts.

    Cons

    For an individual who is not autonomous, this position would not be a good fit. I consistently sought out projects because my supervisor was not proactive about giving me work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized.
