    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    No administrative support, horrible pay, looks good on resume

    Pros

    Vanderbilt is well known for being a fantastic hospital. With so many specialties and worst of the worst cases, there is a wide range of information and experience to be gained by working here. Also with the prestige, it looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    With seeing the kind of patients Vanderbilt sees, a nurse in the SICU (for instance) has a tremendous amount of responsibility compared to most hospital ICUs or any nursing position, really. With the responsibility and no support from administration (I am sure you have heard about the nurse sentenced for the murder of a patient after administering the wrong medication), it causes extreme stress and constant fear that if any mistake is made, they will be the first to throw you to the wolves. They are so worried about their reputation and their doctors, they will make the nurses fall on every sword possible before they admit they are wrong. It is a toxic work environment and I am so relieved I got out and found that most hospitals actually respect and cherish their nurses.

    Pros

    Some pros regarding being in this position at Vanderbilt is that you get to work with a variety of patients with several varying mental health issues, work-life balance is great, managers are easy to work with, and you get some down time sometimes while working, which is great if you're into reading, have studying to do, or anything along those lines.

    Cons

    The cons of working at Vanderbilt in this position is that it can get monotonous, In order to get up or use the bathroom you have to rely on others and can't just use the restroom whenever you need to, doctors and nurses will a lot of times not even acknowledge you, ask for your input or involve you in the patients care plans and lastly, is it is a lot of sitting down, depending on the patient, you are sometimes sitting for long hours.
