    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Guaranteed full time hours for 12 weeks during the summer. If you continue working through the school year PRN, you are seen as strongly preferred for nurse residency offers when you graduate

    Cons

    This position is in med/surg resource pool, so it's not a great fit for someone who isn't interested in that area of nursing. You're also not allowed to do anything under the supervision of an RN like you would in clinicals, only allowed to function as a PCT.

    I worked at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work environment. Had good interactions with staff & leadership. Pay and benefits were the best I've had anywhere.

    Cons

    Not many. Nothing unusual from other work environments. Leadership does need to prioritize projects and learn to say 'no' to clinical staff demands as this stretches resources thinner and thinner.
