    I have been working at St. Luke's Hospital & Health Network part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall friendly atmosphere, competitive base pay for the area, learning opportunities, willing to hire new grads and nurses without BSNs, tuition reimbursement, self scheduling, updated equipment/facilities, yearly performance evaluations with raises, easily transfer between units/campuses, decent benefits, many opportunities to teach (a lot of students)

    Cons

    A lot of "customer service" scripting for HCAPS scores, no per diem differential, very low shift differential, charge nurses take full assignment with very low differential, often short staffed (as high as 8:1 ratio in med/surg, usually 6:1), rarely diverts (even when at max capacity, will hold acutely ill pts in ED for hours, even days) very budget oriented (constantly pressuring staff to save money in any way possible), staff uniforms with hospital logo--bought out of pocket, teaching hospital (sometimes the only doctor on call is a first year resident with questionable judgement), a lot of brand new nurses working night/evening shifts-- sometimes the most senior nurse on a unit on nights has less than 1 year experience, constantly expanding and adding new hospitals while neglecting to update some of the older ones, high turnover rate especially in ED and Med/Surg

    Excellent nursing staff, very friendly. The company, as a whole does not treat their nurses very well.

    I worked at St. Luke's Hospital & Health Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hometown hospital environment to some extent. There is a handful of good nurses left at the Warren Campus.

    Cons

    When St. Luke's Health Network took over the hospital, the hospital environment changed. The nurses were given much more demanding workloads without any added incentives or support staff, and the expectations of management became more focused on customer service and "being on stage". They stopped caring about good nurses and providing genuine and compassionate patient care, and they started pushing nurses to engage in "drive-by-nursing" and rehearse customer service lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First, you need to value your nursing staff to the extent that you are focused on raising morale and providing the necessary resources and support needed for nurses to provide quality and compassionate patient care. Second, you should treat your nursing staff as the valuable and foundational component of a caring hospital team.
