    Pros

    The train you for at least a month before having you on your own.

    Cons

    If can get frustrating if you are not quick enough. The team lead only likes to help you if it is necessary. They expect you to be able to handle yourself by yourself only after a week of training.

    Advice to Management

    Please have more patience with the new hires. Please don't get too frustrated or annoyed if someone is slower then other people.

    I worked at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Nurse Residency program to transition new grad RNs to real world clinical care. The CEO (while I worked there) was informed and really cared about the hospital. Their Culture of Caring is in action not just words. Beautiful location near Hanover, NH. Safe and serene. They listen to nurse input and your voice is heard if you care to join the improvement team. Loved the flexibility, was able to take off time by requesting it in advance, never got denied my request in 3 years (as long as I had the PTO hours accrued, it wasn't a holiday that I had to work, etc).

    Cons

    Remoteness in New Hampshire however not an issue at all if you are outdoorsy and/or bring a significant other.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye out for bully nurses, though rare they can make other people's lives miserable.
