    My first nursing job

    Former Employee - Staff Nurse in Harrisburg, PA
    Former Employee - Staff Nurse in Harrisburg, PA

    I worked at PinnacleHealth System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great nursing mentors on the floor.
    -Wide variety of patient experience to be had.
    -Support in obtaining certifications and continuing education.
    -Uniforms to distinguish staff roles easily.
    -Magnet hospital, lots of nursing empowerment.
    -Frequent nursing in-services that are staff driven.
    -Teaching hospitals are great places to learn!

    Cons

    -Not a lot of cultural understanding or support among some members of staff for the military dependent lifestyle. I found that this was an inter-department issue and over heard disparaging talk regarding military spouses and how frequently they move, "why do we hire them anyway?" sort of thing.
    -Working the popular day/night swing shift could be rough, runs of days or nights could be as short as a week each with an expected turn around time of ending a night shift Monday morning and being back for day shift on Tuesday.

    I worked at PinnacleHealth System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Defiantly patient focused. I enjoyed helping the patients. I liked the easy commute back and forth to work.

    Cons

    They don't treat their employees well at all.
    I left the Neuro office. The manager was more interested In being friends with her employees than implementing rules for ALL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It never pays to be friends with the employees & give special treatment!

    I have been working at PinnacleHealth System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent patient outcomes in multiple specialties. Excellent nurse patient ratios. Competitive benefits. Great teamwork from all disciplines.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits could improve. Many areas of nursing is micromanaged. Annual evaluations are not really based on individual performance. Higher management looks at surveys and ratings instead of individual performance outcomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make nurses salaries more competitive with area hospitals.

    I have been working at PinnacleHealth System

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Good pay. Great co-workers (very supportive). Very family friendly--they realize that you have other obligations that you need to care for.

    Cons

    The economic downturn has led to decrease in training that's allowed--I believe this is very shortsighted on their part. Training could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more openly. Communication seems to be improving, but there are too many buzzwords that the average employee doesn't understand. Upper management should be more visible and leading by example.
