    I have been working at University of Chicago Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Pay rate is fairly good

    Cons

    Patients weren't always treated fairly when waiting to be attended to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to speak up more for the patients instead of treating the doctors like they are God's that can't be reprimanded.

    Nurse Bullying City...A place where nurse bullying thrives

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Chicago, IL

    I worked at University of Chicago Hospital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Access to the University of Chicago "brand"
    Great Pay

    Cons

    The worst nurse vs. nurse bullying I have ever seen in any hospital in my career
    Negative competitive culture between nurses
    Management refusal to confront an unhealthy culture

    I worked there briefly and have never been bullied by my fellow nurses at any other hospital like I was bullied there. I was criticized for asking questions that would benefit my patients and allow me to safely care for them, and I was yelled at by my nurse preceptor. When I informed management, she acknowledged the negative culture and provided no proactive solutions. I decided to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would take alot of work, but it would be worth it to revamp the nursing culture at U of C hospital. Stop focusing on your great pay and benefits as selling points, and work on creating a healthier, team-oriented learning environment where nurses would be happy to come and work.
