    I have been working at CentraCare Health part-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of scholarships available for people going to school for health careers, management is usually good, and the facilities are nice

    Cons

    they mandate at the long term care facilities if they are short staffed, but deals can be made and you can kind of set it up so that you get mandated on the nights you're able to and not on the nights you're not (like if you have class). You get paid time and a half when you're mandated which makes it not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    put more focus on ways to retain employees because being short staffed snowballs. People get tired of being mandated and quit, which leads to more people who get mandated and quit, and so on.

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

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at CentraCare is the availability of other providers and physicians to work as a team.

    Cons

    Some of the benefits could be improved> Time off for first year as a seasoned APP could be compensated better.

    Advice to Management

    Salary means to many they will stay to finish a job or complete care but then would like to recoup some time when they have a health appointment or a meeting away from the clinic or hospital.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great & you have a tight bond with them. Cross trained in all departments so your skills are broadened.

    Cons

    Upper management will never change unless they want to bed the rule to work for them. You work short staffed a lot & it's concerning.

    Give your employees what they need to be successful & listen to them when they have concerns.

    I have been working at CentraCare Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful environment to work and to be a part of. In truth, the work load can be a little daunting at times, but everyone works together like a true team.

    Cons

    The unit schedulers seem to have a personal vendetta against the staff sometimes. We can be scheduled on the days that we requested off over a year ago.

    Advice to Management

    Have a real sit down conversation with your unit schedulers, because, more often than not, they are the reason that staff ends up leaving
