    I have been working at Lancaster General full-time

    Pros

    Good nurse autonomy, most providers are pleasant to work with, generally have needed supplies, good tuition reimbursement if you want to go to PA college of health sciences

    Cons

    Pay is too low, supplies have been hard to get at times. Tuition reimbursement only good at PA college of health sciences if the college has the course of study you want so you are essentially forced to go there to use the benefit

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for retention. Ensure units are adequately stocked- it's frustrating and a time suck searching for needed supplies. Replace outdated and broken equipment- beds, phones, vitals machines, etc. Improve staffing for nurses and ptcas
