    Pros

    Variety of jobs available, don't feel stuck in one spot. This facility is like a community. There are many opportunities for lateral moves and advancement.

    Cons

    Staffing sometimes is low. This is not unique to this facility, but occurs in many organizations. If you are unhappy in a position it's easy to move.

    Pros

    Great benefits for new grads and they offered raises at the end of your first year. They also provided tuition reimbursement which was a plus!

    Cons

    Gossiping co-workers and supervisors. No team work. Always short staffed. New nurses placed with terrible preceptors! Nurses have a max load of patients 6-7 with 2-3 admissions throughout the night. The RN resident contract is a bunch of crap. If you quit or get fired you have to pay them $5000 in full to.come back or they will put it in collections. They are racist as far as co-workers. They make a lot of racial.slurs and there is always someone trying to twist your words and get you fired. Too.many lazy nurses, rude cna's and lazy secretary! Stay away!!!#

    Advice to Management

    You need better preceptors for new nurses. The gossiping needs to stop; it's very unprofessional. You need to hire more full time workers instead of agency nurses. Quit giving nurses especially new ones the max patient load. The supervisors need to quit showing favortism to certain nurses and telling private employee business to staff members. HR is absent and needs to so a better job at recruiting.

    I have been working at Baptist Health (Arkansas) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Prayer in the workplace
    PTO
    office luncheons
    If you get a great sense of accomplishment from completing work, don't work here!! It never ends and it will be there when you get back to work the next day. The more you work the more work there is still left to do!

    Cons

    Cliques and more cliques...
    Snakes in the Grass. When they want to get rid of you it is only a matter of time. Don't ask too many questions even when they tell you to Ask Questions. It's a setup

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and accept suggestions from employees

    Pros

    Baptist Healthcare in North Little Rock Arkansas is a great place to work. I was contracted through Centra Healthcare as a registered nurse and it was a pleasant experience. We had block scheduling therefore I could plan ahead for days off. The work load was pretty typical, most staff was helpful, equipment was up to date.

    Cons

    I worked in the pool so I never knew what floor I would be working on. Some were defiantly better than others. I wouldn't work in the pool again. If I'm offered another contract there I will hope for permanent placement on 1A. The nurses there are awesome!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management. Every facility has a few 'snarky' staff. If management everywhere could figure out how to weed out those types and still maintain the needed number of staff, nursing would be a much nicer profession

    Pros

    When first starting out everything seems fine. The co-workers and bosses are nice and easy going. The hours are nice, and they work with your schedule if you have school or appointments.

    Cons

    The problem is that there are too many people who have no idea what they are doing. The training is horrible and the bosses will pick and prod on the most littlest of things. But I guess that is a job.

    Advice to Management

    To hear what your employees have to say, Get their answers before moving around things that could be a waste of time and that hurt others by wasting time.
