    I worked at Tulane Medical Center part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is higher because the retention rate is low.

    Cons

    Unbearable working conditions. The nurse to patient ratio is unsafe plus the nursing staff has no ancillary help. There is a lack of teamwork because everyone is drowning. The patient acuity is higher than most med/surge units in the city. Staff is forced to take shortcuts in patient care in order to please upper management 's demands.

    Horrible. Management is useless. HR hiring process takes forever to get back in touch with applicants.

    Pros

    Just great to have a job that has a decent pay.

    Cons

    Self scheduling is useless. Most RN's hired are useless many are hired from being fired or cant find a job any where'selse. Its just a group of good ole gals with no type of sensitive for patient care. Always under staffed and over worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to listen to staff and their needs. Be pro active towards the needs of the staff and the department.

    Pros

    Great experience - Working at a for-profit academic medical center will prepare you to work in most health care settings.

    Cons

    Hospital leaders have a lot going on, they answer to a number of different entities so it can be challenging to be noticed

    I worked at Tulane Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While working there I have met so many great, smart, motivated people. The human capital of the institution is tremendous. Great diversity for the region.

    Cons

    Entirely too much bureaucracy. Complete lack of entrepreneurial spirit. No support for innovation and creative thinking/endeavors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some calculated risks. Create an environment of innovation and think outside the box.

    I worked at Tulane Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The cafeteria food is decent, and some of the employees are nice. I do not have any other commendations.

    Cons

    Yelling at and threatening employees is commonplace at this institution. Towards the end of my employment, I felt I might need to speak with a professional just to regain my own sense of self-worth. The engagement scores are consistently some of the worst in the nation, and upper management seems more interested in moving up the career ladder than actually trying to make a difference. Many of the common practices at this institution are unethical and sometimes downright illegal. DO NOT work here if you are interested in keeping any shred of self-respect or integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place would be much better off if upper management would focus on patient care rather than politics.

    I have been working at Tulane Medical Center

    Pros

    Pay is good, but for a reason...sure, you will learn alot, but don't expect any help from anyone because everyone is drowning.

    Cons

    inadequate orientation, nurses are rude and leave work for the next shift. I wanted to cry everytime I had to go in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach nurses how to be tactful, tell them to do stat orders before giving report to oncoming shift. Make sure preceptors are actually precepting.
