    Pros

    The hospital of the University of Pennsylvania truly values nurses, as evidenced by a nurse being hired as CEO of the hospital, whom was our Chief Nursing Executive prior to being promoted. Educational opportunities, work with amazing colleagues, and it is part of an Ivy League institution with the best nursing school in the country.

    Cons

    Nothing specifically about this institution, but rather nursing in general so use your imagination. However, I will say that through the shared governance structure and nursing administration and clinical nurse specialists opportunities to turn cons into pros is possible

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cultivate the pride and passion for Penn Nursing, and reflect that through listening and backing it up, as you have and hope you continue to do.
