    Pros

    On the floor, the teamwork between the staff is impeccable. The benefits are great too. Also, the beach is 10 minutes away.

    Cons

    Pay Rate per hour is low due to the area and lack of competition, and the staffing ratios are awful; 6:1 on most of the floors.

    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PTO, staff, benefits, hospital discounts, private building.

    Cons

    Some Directors are not capable of being leaders and are threatened by their staff who appear motivated for growth. These directors do not walk the walk; not leaders to look up to.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more supervision to Directors and hold them accountable for their actions.

    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid for classes and certs. Clinical staff has amazing team members. Lifelong friends made here on the battlefield. Great medical benefits

    Cons

    Disconnected management, do not communicate with employees. Continually change procedures to make it look good on paper while making it ever more dangerous for patients and your license. Huge turnover rate related to inept leadership. The clinical staff feels like a front line infantry with no communications to base. The feeling is the department is covering up and we were blatantly told to change chart times to meet standards. A sentinel event occurred a few years ago and the continuous changes to procedure have made it more and more dangerous. Staff have zero departmental support and fear for their jobs daily. The dept continues to have new grads come in and have one year nurses orient them: more danger.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Departmental management needs to go and when they run out of people for their witch hunts, the house of cards will fall. Hopefully, no more patients die.

    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly evolving organization. I genuinely loved coming to work everyday. I had a boss I respected it understood the growing pains of a new physician network. I found my boss (VP) to be highly ethical and very much in touch with the reality of patient satisfaction and exemplary care. I loved my job here but needed to explore the other side of healthcare from an IT / technology perspective. NHRMC gave me the tools and confidence to do that.

    Cons

    Not enough arms or legs for the volume of work. Although professional development was available I was often unable to take advantage of it just because I was so busy maintaining my day to day responsibilities.
