    I have been working at Virginia Hospital Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best places for RN’s focuses on professional growth, nursing staff has support with career management team. They promote from within. And that makes the hospital the best to work in the area.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Insurance is expensive. Work load can be heavy. Stocks in old way of doing things. Short staff. Need to invest more on teaching staff.

    Advice to Management

    Teaching and in service should be implemented, coming from other sister hospital, feel as if some of the staff are unsure of the protocols.
