    You will learn a lot and get a lot of experience. Some managers are very good and helpful.

    Heavy work load and not enough resources to provide sufficient care. There is also a lot of miscommunication between departments. They don't care about their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your nurses and you'll be ale to keep more of your nurses

    Pros

    There is great team work on the unit I am on. Everyone works very hard to help each other with patient care. You are able to pick your own days to work.

    Cons

    Equipment is always broken. Management is never present and bias at times. Communication between night and day shift is non existant. Employees are rarely given raises. Employees are given multiple tasks to do which take away from patient care and then disciplined when there are poor patient satisfaction ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Actually come and work on the floor instead of creating "time studies" in place of physically managing employees. Give incentives to those who are consistent in providing quality care to patients.

    Pros

    Co-workers I had were fantastic and really good at what they do.

    Cons

    More often than not supervisors and managers were always trying to pass the buck and not go by standard operating procedures. We worked with a skeleton crew and did not have the supplies we needed to properly do our jobs and it became all about saving money rather than taking care of patients.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the employees the proper supplies and staff to do the job needed for the patients. The point of ridiculousness of trying to play the blame game is insane and undermines the hard work of the people that believe in what they do.

    Pros

    This is a good place to gain experience if you are a new nurse. Management doesn't support tenured nurses. Most of the good nurses leave after 1 to 2 years. But if you want to get education money to finish your BSN and/or enough experience for your next job. This is the place to gain/obtain that experience.

    Cons

    You have to fit into one of the clicks. Management has their favorites and if you aren't one of them don't expect any career growth. It is extremely fast paced, need the charge nurses to assist when it's too busy. Very difficult to ensure patient care when each nurse has 5 each.

    Advice to Management

    Open any browser and search for Christus Spohn Shoreline Employee Reviews. You need to hire more nurses and provide incentive for them to stay a minimum of 5 years. So many of the current nurses have only been there 1 to 2 years. Before they move on to better opportunities.

    Pros

    Christus is a great place to work for those that have compassion to help anyone in need.

    Cons

    Not having enough time to share with patients.

    Advice to Management

    Allow associates to always give input on how to better services that are offered.
