    I worked at Our Lady of the Lake (Louisiana) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for new nurses to gain experiences. Great learning and teaching environment. There are many good units to work on and some not so great, however on every unit, there is an opportunity to learn something.

    Cons

    Need better/ more competitive pay. Management needs to focus on providing staffing and support staff. Management is more focused on customer service than providing staffing. High turnover of nurses.

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep staff, management should provide adequate staffing.
