    I have been working at JPS Health Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a level one trauma center, so the experience can't be beat. The patient population is challenging, as it's a county facility. But you'll see more in your time here than you will just about anywhere else. Lots of training is available. Orientation for transition nurse was good, with class time and a lengthy orientation period. Teamwork is excellent most of the time. Overtime is always available.

    Cons

    Chronic under-staffing and high patient ratios with high acuity make this a very challenging place to work. There are overflow patients in the halls every shift, frequently without appropriate monitoring equipment available. The self-scheduling tool used in the rest of the hospital is not implemented in ER. Schedules are frequently released late and often you can't get time scheduled off when you need it even if you provide months of notice. Management pushes hard for quick turnaround times that are not realistic given the patient load, and seem to be out of touch with what it's like to actually work there.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get to and stay at full staffing for all shifts. Force ER to use the same self-scheduling tool as the rest of the hospital. Find better ways to deal with overflow patients, if they have to be treated in the halls, get enough monitoring equipment for safer patient care.

    I worked at JPS Health Network full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    teaching hospital, lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    training was horrible, leadership terrible, nurses "ate their young", benefits were awful. You were forced to use JPS services as an employee, with sub par care. Low salary compared to the rest of the metroplex

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training, more organized orientation. Improve benefits. Don't treat your employees like you do your unemployed patients.

    I have been working at JPS Health Network full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Teaching facility, great deal of respect and admiration, new technologies and equipment, supportive physicians, wide range of populations served. Police department within the hospital (rather than poorly trained guards).

    Cons

    Bring your own lunch. McDs and tiny far away cafeteria; pharmacy for employees takes forever.
