      Pros

      Magnet Hospital. Great people. They really listen to their nurses. Lots of opportunity for involvement and being heard. Clean facilities. Lots of great education programs for new grads.

      Cons

      Low pay even for rural area. Staffing issues in some units but that is sort of a expected issue in nursing. If you are a new grad and go through their training they make you sign a 2 year contract.

      My first nursing job

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Great nursing mentors on the floor. -Wide variety of patient experience to be had. -Support in obtaining certifications and continuing education. -Uniforms to distinguish staff roles easily. -Magnet hospital, lots of nursing empowerment. -Frequent nursing in-services that are staff driven. -Teaching hospitals are great places to learn!

      Cons

      -Not a lot of cultural understanding or support among some members of staff for the military dependent lifestyle. I found that this was an inter-department issue and over heard disparaging talk regarding military spouses and how frequently they move, "why do we hire them anyway?" sort of thing. -Working the popular day/night swing shift could be rough, runs of days or nights could be as short as a week each with an expected turn around time of ending a night shift Monday morning and being back for day shift on Tuesday.
