    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your are doing a great job elevating the status of nurses in the hospital, we dont often feel underappreciated or neglected here. Thanks for themany opportunities and incentives to grow in our profession.

    I have been working at JPS Health Network full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a level one trauma center, so the experience can't be beat. The patient population is challenging, as it's a county facility. But you'll see more in your time here than you will just about anywhere else. Lots of training is available. Orientation for transition nurse was good, with class time and a lengthy orientation period. Teamwork is excellent most of the time. Overtime is always available.

    Cons

    Chronic under-staffing and high patient ratios with high acuity make this a very challenging place to work. There are overflow patients in the halls every shift, frequently without appropriate monitoring equipment available. The self-scheduling tool used in the rest of the hospital is not implemented in ER. Schedules are frequently released late and often you can't get time scheduled off when you need it even if you provide months of notice. Management pushes hard for quick turnaround times that are not realistic given the patient load, and seem to be out of touch with what it's like to actually work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to get to and stay at full staffing for all shifts. Force ER to use the same self-scheduling tool as the rest of the hospital. Find better ways to deal with overflow patients, if they have to be treated in the halls, get enough monitoring equipment for safer patient care.

    Pros

    The department I worked in which was Patient Accounting is a small department. The atmosphere was very nice. Co-workers felt like family. Good resources to do your job effectiviely.

    Cons

    Training could be better. Use the tools to better train employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New employees should be train the same. Management need to have better process to make sure the employees are being taugt correctly.

    Pros

    Great teaching and learning environment with good mentors.

    Cons

    Cost for benefits are expensive (Family plan cost $800 per month). Some of the leadership are only invested in themselves and don't reflect the core values of the JPS Mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the employees at JPS and improve the cost of benefits.

    I worked at JPS Health Network part-time

    Pros

    -The leadership is fantastic. JPS really cares about their employees.
    -I loved working with the under served population. Working with the under served health population comes with its own challenges but I was proud of my work and felt that I was making a difference.
    -There are many opportunities for professional growth and advancement.

    Cons

    -It is a county hospital and lacks funding. Hence, expect salaries to be low and benefits to be sub-par. I chose to stay on my husband's insurance plan rather than switch once I began work at JPS. Many of my co-workers complained about their medical plans.
