    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff were really nice. Great experience for a student.

    Cons

    You're kind of thrown into the deep end early on. Can be daunting to go up to patients/nurses/doctors at first.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, average pay, loved my coworkers

    Cons

    They are not family friendly and will fire you even if you get hit by a bus and miss more than 5 days in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Could be more understanding

    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great teamwork. The people I worked with made the job. Even the coordinators and the manager were amazing. Great opportunities to expand/move to another unit. Additional education provided frequently. Great learning experience. Doctors on the unit were easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Too many patients per nurse at times. Overwhelming. On a unit with the majority being new nurses. At times, all new nurses making the floor feeling overwhelmed. Certain "bad seed" employees, when discussed with management, sometimes little was ever done.

    Advice to Management

    If you're truly thinking about your patients then listen to your nurses. If they are overwhelmed (which could be expected if having 6-7 patients), then hire more nurses. Push for your nurses. Happier nurses make happier patients which makes happier doctors. It's all within the cycle.

    Pros

    Nice benefit package, including a pension plan and employee health clinic. Regular raises and even through the economic decline there were no layoffs.

    Cons

    Understaffed and patient to nurse ratios always exceed goals. Poor scheduling by a system with no manager involvement. Goals of organization and bottom line dollars always take precedence over employee concerns, needs, or health.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment to look beyond your agenda, the bottom line, and what you need to do to get that next big promotion, designation, or award. Look at the humanness of your employees, their physical needs & health, and their physical and mental health. Their families depend on them and they are most likely in your employment for that very reason. Remember failure to do this results in turn over and turnover greatly affects that bottom line/bottom dollar. Also, increased patient load and exhausted, overworked employees does not put the patient first! It actually puts them at jeopardy!

    Pros

    Teaching Hospital-great physician's and PA's willing to teach.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Lazy nursing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Promote quality staff and pay them accordingly. Stop keeping below par staff just because you can pay them less-monopolizing the industry in this area. Do not promote staff to management just because of seniority.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall a happy place to work, secure jobs, overall positive attitude with consistent growth

    Cons

    If you aren't a nurse or a doctor, you are treated pretty poorly. Management tries to make as few people as possible do as large of a job as possible. Very short staffed but management refuses to create new positions to keep the hospital in the black

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like by not hiring people and not spending money on the most expensive part of a business (Your employees) you are doing amazing things with the budgets. Any business could stay in the black if they didn't hire new positions to expand with the growth of a business. Eventually this will bring your business down.
