      Pros

      Cons

      Does not pay nurses enough (especially CVICU nurses) to overcome its high turnover rate.

      Advice to Management

      Our jobs as an RN is rewarding, but help us to keep doing what we love by paying us better. Though we did not start our job for the money, if we want to continue our job in such high cost of living area, we need to be stable in our home and our job to stay in our career.
