    Pros

    Being a nurse at Ochsner allowed me to develop clinically as well as grow my leadership skills. I was a supervisor in two years, and then a manager in four. At Ochsner, you can be a hospital bedside nurse and enjoy your work, or you can move into case management, leadership, research, clinic positions, performance improvement etc. You can move from busy and varied med/surg to the best, most acute, critical care areas in the region! You can be in acute psyche, post acute care, home health.. all without leaving the company! You will also meet people and form relationships that will follow you throughout your career. The people here are what makes coming to work worth it.

    Cons

    Parking at Jefferson Highway is a bear. You have to be here 15 minutes before your shift start time in order to be on time.

    I worked with really great nurses who were dedicated to deliver the highest level of patient care.

    Nursing was not given the respect they deserved by sustem executive leadership.

    You can have the best physicians in the world, but without a strong nurses and support staff, you could not operate your hospitals.

    Pros

    Lots of oppotinuty to learn. Plenty of resources to complete tasks.

    Cons

    RN Staff staffing ratios are poor and pay is not competiative with other local hospitals

    Advice to Management

    Hosipital is short staffed across the board, from RNs, PCTs, and transporters. If the hospital can not staff all of the beds, patients should not be admitted. It makes for an unsafe enviornment for patients and causes staff burn out. Management should focus more on retention, then offering huge bonuses to new hires.

    Pros

    The staff that we do have is great.

    Cons

    Poor staffing house wide, our floor has to stretch so other floors can be staffed. Even when we have adequate staffing, it gets taken away.

    Advice to Management

    Stop opening new floors and new hospitals until you can staff the facilities that you have. More money towards a rentention bonus, instead of so much money to new grads.

    I have been working at Ochsner Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employees have the ability to transfer within the health system. We also are required to take a certain amount of hours of CEU hours. Many can be accessed through an inner company site that we can complete during work hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes positions are not filled quickly when an employee leaves the department or the system. Sometimes not at all.

    Advice to Management

    Realize all positions are important not just clinical positions. Especially when a position needs to be replaced or filled when an employee leaves the company or transferred to another dept.
