Registered Nurse

Looking for ideas for a slight "career change". I can't stand working bedside/acute care nursing anymore, officially burnt out. Does anyone have any experience with informatics based nursing jobs, or clinical documentation specialist positions? EMR auditing? Remote jobs? Pros/cons? Do you find there are part time positions available? I don't have my masters just my BSN/RB, nor do I plan on going back for my masters, would possibly consider a certification if really necessary.

    Pros

    Manager was so amazing and compassionate/understanding towards us employees and is very competent in her role. The doctors here are super kind and great at what they do.

    Cons

    The 'big higher-ups' of MGH/The Weight Center need to actually do something to make the necessary changes so that people are not miserable working here. Not to mention our salary was not the right compensation for the amount of work/expectations that are set on the employees.

    Low Salary for non-MD's and non-executive level employees - career ladder issues

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Partners system is a giant and MGH is part of an incredible health enterprise.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive and only way to increase salary is to leave and find a new job outside of MGH. The merit increase is the only way up and at 2% per year it is a very slow climb. This is a disincentive to stay and perform like a rock star. HR policies do not support growth and the practice of equity among limited career paths further stifles opportunity and growth. New talent is held back based upon HR equity. Not smart.

    Salary structure is very subjective and less objective. Entrepreneurship is nonexistence.

    Pros

    World class institution. Democratic work principles

    Cons

    Despite it's historical standing and name recognition, the middle to top Management is power hungry at every avenue. Employees in clinical and staffing level get paid less than market salary and are squeezed in the name of excellency and being world class institute.

    Ironically not enough opportunity for advancement...

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Opportunity to work with highly educated and brilliant people who are often the best of the best in their field.

    Cons

    Organization is so big it’s actually difficult to change positions - it’s all about who you know. Unfortunately, this often times makes it nearly impossible to advance your career. High turnover and not enough resources for coverage when departments are short staffed. Salary is determined by an archaic formula and doesn’t put much weight on work experience outside of healthcare. Also punching a clock is demoralizing.

    Good company to work for

    Pros

    Good collaboration between basic and clinical research. Great childcare centers.

    Cons

    Instructor salary cap has not changed for the past 10 years regardless of inflation rate. The salary offered is lower than other medical centers which makes it harder to recruit/retain research assistant.
