    Great place to learn and make connections. Worked with so many different nurses, most truly care about their patients and work. Great team work and managers really care about the staff. Great company to advance with!

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better considering the cost of living. More respect for care partners.

    Pros

    Sentara has a fresh and forward thinking philosophy that runs through everything we do. My co-workers are enthusiastic and leadership has an aggressive and well thought out plan for each step taken. It's exciting to see changes happen rapidly and patient care improve as everyone her cares.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to expand your work experiences while working in a progressive health care environment. Transparency in patient outcomes. Great potential for bonuses with clear objectives.

    Traffic in Virginia Beach is horrible. Depending on where you work and where you live, your commute can be as little as 10 minutes to an hour each way....

    Advice to Management

    Lots of opportunities within the system.

    I worked at Sentara Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Comraderie (not sure of spelling) with all staff, physician's, PA's, NP/s, RN, LPN, all staff. I never should have left SNGH. I really enjoyed working on the Mental Health Unit. MAB

    Cons

    non smoking facility. No areas assigned to accomodate staff that do smoke.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the senior person on campus could walk thru the halls and units and give praise where is due! Schedule is usually fast and we work so hard we forget how easy it is to compliment someone performing their job. Everyone deserves credit where due!
