    I worked at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time

    Pros

    The children's hospital of philadelphia is an amazing place to work, the staff there is so willing to help one another out.

    Cons

    There are restrictions placed on what staff can do especially nurse technicians, so you are limited in scope of practice because of the hospital policies.

    Advice to Management

    Management can do a better job with staffing in relation to patients, a majority of the time units are understaffed and overworked.

    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn and gain experience. Great place to learn quality nursing care and patient safety. Front lines of medicine so a lot of rare cases can be seen and treated that may not be seen in other hospitals.

    Cons

    The pay is just not enough. Even after a pay raise for the entire nursing staff the bump in pay was miniscule.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to pay the nurse equally or more to nurses in the area because the amount of work that CHOP nurses do is immense and important and they are passionate!
