    Focus more on your staff. They really do a great job.

    I have been working at Jacksonville University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Teaching student is a wonderful experience. Great Faculty to work with.

    Cons

    The School of Nursing is held to a different standard than the rest of the University. Faculty concerns go ignored by leadership. Not every faculty member is treated the same. Minimal to no communication with faculty and staff about changes that clearly affect them. School of nursing leadership unwilling to address, acknowledge concerns and worse is they never want to take action.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, University Level Management is well aware of the situation at the school of nursing and actively choose to ignore staff and faculty concerns.
