I worked at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Potential to be a 5 star place to work.

Cons

Flying by the seat of their pants, and growing too fast. Failure to step back and plan, implies they are planning for failure or mediocrity.

Advice to Management

Local administrative management sets the tone of the facility, and the tone that was set was negative.

    I have been working at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership and training. Many opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Tough economic environment for health care right now. Many budget cuts and "Lean" programs to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Talk straight to your employees about the money situations facing health care providers. Let them know that their jobs may be on the line if they don't do their part and shape up!

    I worked at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved the people I worked with. It made everything worth it. We worked well together on our unit.

    Cons

    I found that I never got off of work on time. With 6 patients overnight, many times we would have to stay and catch up on something. Some mornings we would also have to give report to 4 or 5 different nurses, so it always ended up going late. Also, if there were fewer patients for each nurse I know we could get to know their stories better.
