I worked at VCU Medical Center full-time
Fantastic work environment. Shared governance—-so nurses get a say in policies, and practice. Safe patient ratios, excellent health benefits (I didn’t realize how excellent until I saw other packages at other companies). I will always miss having worked here!
The usual cons that are everywhere —-weekends, holidays, etc etc. nothing glaring and horrible that bothered me a lot.
I applied online. I interviewed at VCU Medical Center.
HR was disorganized when I was hired. Hopefully, it's better now, but I definitely had to hound them Also, now I hear they have a personality inventory for new hires-- not sure if this is really the way to go. Anyway, this personality inventory is supposed to help us make better decision; I think we got sold a bill of goods.
There was no negotiation. It was right after the recession, and I was happy to get a job offer as a career-changer nurse.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
