    Pros

    This is a teaching hospital. I did learn a lot as new nurse. 97% of the time this is a new nurse friendly hospital.

    Cons

    This hospital is constantly evolving and making improvements. every hospitals have their own downfall. This one is staffing and another is not a lot of seasoned nurses left on most floors.

    Advice to Management

    To be able to keep seasoned nurses on the floor says a lot about a hospital. Keeping employees and nurses reasonably happy with their jobs might help.
