    Pros

    Can find your niche of supportive professionals in various departments in time. HMO is proactive in preventative care.

    Cons

    HMO= requires daily battles to advocate for patients. Profit is an overly motivating factor vs. what is best for patient. The only one thriving is the company/CEO. The Nursing profession itself is a losing proposition- all the liability & responsibility with no power to change your practice. Little autonomy. Little support from peers. "Helping profession" = not uncommon to draw dysfunctional people. Leadership not rewarded. Unions are only good for wage standard & overall ratio protection. Don't expect support in the bad games played.

    Advice to Management

    Support your professionals. In an entire 20+ year career in this field, I only ever had 2 good managers.
