    I worked at North Florida Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smaller hospital, easy to learn and get to know staff and physicians on a personal level. When you have that kind of rapport work flow, patient care and emergencies are handled smoothly with little to no errors. It was my second home for 27years.

    Cons

    There is a great turn over in staff these days. You don't know their names much less glove size or if they need a step stool or not. This brings down patient satisfaction and staff survey scores as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your long term employees and perhaps you won't have so many keep leaving

    I worked at North Florida Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of at this time

    Cons

    Low salary.
    They do not value self growth. You can be in your position for years, you will not get training or refreshers, and you will not advance.
    They will notice your tremendous efforts, and they will make many promises as far as salary and bonuses, but you will receive none.
    They prefer those with little experience so that they can pay them less. Once you have experience, they will do anything to try to get rid of you so that they're not paying you a lot.
    This company is a business with a HUGE focus on $MONEY$. The main goal is to make as much money as possible despite any violation of any regulations or standards. For example, you could have as many as 8 patients as a nurse, despite the lack of care that you can offer your patients due to the large number of patients that you're caring for.

    Advice to Management

    Management should focus on good employees so that they can keep them. Management should shift its focus a a little bit towards those on who they stand.

    Pros

    High sense of team work and community within the hospital. Always feel like others have my back and I can ask questions as a new nurse.

    Cons

    Little to no job education, especially when things are constantly being changed for cost reasons yet no training is given on new equipment.

    Pros

    Small business feel. Everyone seems to know everyone.

    Cons

    Pay is VERY low (even for the South). staffing is poor. Instead of hiring new staff to improve staffing they prefer to have high patient ratios. Computer charting system (Meditech) is archaeic. No additional compensation for BSN or specialty certifications. Human resources is disorganized and sluggish.

    Advice to Management

    improve staffing and pay and you will decrease employee turnover.

    I worked at North Florida Regional Medical Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good working environment. I really did enjoy working with a wonderful group of people.

    Cons

    They wanted to be cheap about paying for benefits and health insurance so it was virtually impossible to get a full time job. Instead they hire you as part time or per diem and allow you to work full time hours.

    Advice to Management

    See above regarding benefits and health insurance. Its kind of a poor policy for a hospital to avoid giving health care to their own employees.
