    Pros

    Benefits, salary ,night differencial and certifications

    Cons

    Currently noticing a trends of racism. Black nurses applying at the hospital is not even given an interview meanwhile white nurses are being hired as new grads with no experiences

    Advice to Management

    Stops the trends of hiring only white nurses because you setting up yourself for a class action law suits.

    I worked at New York Methodist Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits (via NYSNA). Good patient ratio (the floor I worked on was 6-8). Good teamwork. Partnership with NYP seems promising.

    Cons

    It should be a red flag that the NYSNA representative warned all RNs on day 1 that Methodist has a record of firing people for small or insignificant reasons. I know people who were fired related to calling out sick. Some are forced to resign. Nurses I met with constantly cited "keeping your job" rather than patient safety or satisfaction as reasons to stay on your toes. It seems like despite the pros of the job, RNs are stressed because of job security.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain and recruit high-quality nurses, please start by respecting them. Everybody--nurses, MDs, etc.--makes small mistakes, and being sick should not count as misconduct. Making occasional errors does not equate to being a bad person or neglectful nurse. Modern, effective leadership requires patience and a willingness to allow people to learn from their mistakes. You cannot hope to have the best and brightest when you're firing people with a hair trigger. Most nurses I met with seemed more concerned about keeping their jobs than doing right by their patients.
