    I have been working at Inova part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good, supportive coworkers. Coming to work is enjoyable. Top notch docs in msicu. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Underpaid, unsupported beside nurses. Out of touch management. Nurses leave too often for better pay and/or masters programs because they're tired of exhausting bedside care.

    Advice to Management

    Try working a shift in an RN's shoes. (Where's Undercover Boss when you need it?) Or have your loved ones come here for care and watch us rush around them trying to get all the ridiculous JCAHO-related tasks done instead of providing excellent care, communication and proper education. Upper management has lost touch with appropriate day-to-day bedside care. It's heartbreaking that Inova is too busy buying naming rights to the Redskins training facility, advertising at Nats games, and building a "wealth care" center across Gallows Rd instead of focusing on supporting nurses who provide thorough critical medical care. The nurses are the backbone of the hospital system, yet we feel like management doesn't care and considers us disposable.

    I have been working at Inova full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great resume booster.
    Teamwork between coworkers is always great.
    Great patient outcomes.

    Cons

    Terrible insurance (well over 75% of my claims are denied for any reason)!
    It is nearly impossible to take a day off (it is 7/6/17 and the next day use my PTO is on 10/26/17).
    The salary/compensation is awful compared to other employers. Treated as someone who may be replaced at any time. Lack of room for growth or promotion.
    Senior Management seems to promote due to nepotism.
