        Honestly none, its just a job and a really terrible.ome at that


        Unsafe working conditions, management cares about thier productivity and nurses work short staffed every single day to make these hospitals money at the expense of pt care and the mental wellbeing of the nurses. They make you work for a minuscule merit increase per.year which doesnt even meet inflation.and this year completely cut out nurses adjustment raises when inflation is at an all time high. How convient after they went on the news boasting during covid about 5 percent raises..... well now they are taking it back bc guess what nurses dont get them this year now that covid is over. The have forced overtime shifts as well.... the expectations are unsafe unrealistic and the pay is poor. Experience isnt values what so ever here and neither is loyalty. They will just replace a nurse with a new grad nurse who doesnt know a thing but will be a body at a cheap rate
