    I worked at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits
    Scheduling is easy
    Hours are there if you want them

    Cons

    Poor ED management
    The "higher-ups" for the most part, in the ED are very much a clique and do as they please, when they want and the people they're friends with get to sit back and reap the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    ED management? Start listening to the employees and doing your job appropriately. Don't listen to only your friends.

    Sentara management? I don't know how you all go about hiring and reviewing what's going on in the ED but maybe try a different approach. There is a clear and concise reason that Sentara Princess Anne ED runs through RNs and EDTs and it's not because of "a bad egg". Clearly people are unhappy with the way that it is managed and how they're being treated (with the exception of, like I said, the people that management are friends with).

    I have been working at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with patients and my co-workers. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Recently cut from 40 hours to 36 hours. Sent home early when patient load is light which is nearly every day for one year.

    Advice to Management

    No need to micromanage. If you find you need to, look for replacement for those people.

  8. "Pay worth it?"

    I have been working at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Retirement and pension, I love helping people, I get to work with a great team, I like the flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    The pay seems minimal, nursing care partners don't get the same benefits as other employees. Of course RNs get paid more, but we should recieve the same shift differential, we should recieve extra pay for working only weekends, and we should recieve extra pay for precepting a new employee.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should have equal benefits and opportunites. Of course RNs get paid more than Nursing Care Partners, but we should recieve the same benefits. We should get the same shift differential, we should get extra pay for working only weekends, and we should get paid extra for precepting a new employee. We already don't get paid a whole lot, and its the RNs that get so many opportunities to make more money.
