    Excellent opportunities to expand your work experiences while working in a progressive health care environment. Transparency in patient outcomes. Great potential for bonuses with clear objectives.

    Traffic in Virginia Beach is horrible. Depending on where you work and where you live, your commute can be as little as 10 minutes to an hour each way....

    I worked at Sentara Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Comraderie (not sure of spelling) with all staff, physician's, PA's, NP/s, RN, LPN, all staff. I never should have left SNGH. I really enjoyed working on the Mental Health Unit. MAB

    Cons

    non smoking facility. No areas assigned to accomodate staff that do smoke.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the senior person on campus could walk thru the halls and units and give praise where is due! Schedule is usually fast and we work so hard we forget how easy it is to compliment someone performing their job. Everyone deserves credit where due!
