    Pros

    At Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, new employees are supported in many ways, especially new grads. Our Nurse Residency and Mentor programs east the transition into practice. Our hospital has a family-like culture, with everyone pitching in to help, supporting each other and striving to improve our nursing care. We are small enough to know each other across departments and we have few silos to overcome. Our leaders are visible to staff and open to hearing their concerns. We do not believe that a problem is too big to overcome by working together. I truly enjoy helping employees grow and thrive, as they help me to do so. We want lifelong learners, and those who truly care about helping those in need. We are well on to our Magnet designation, and became a Planetree designated hospital in 2014. We will open a new tower in 2019 which means great opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Each workplace has its own culture, and it's own set of challenges. Our patient population is not wealthy with a lot of resources to support them, so it can be challenging to give them all we want to help them heal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with staff, and asking their input to improve patient care.

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the team environment. The main reason I stayed in my former position so long was because I liked my coworkers. There was a strong referral network and the majority of the doctors were friendly and competent. I liked that Sharp is typically on the cutting edge with technology tool

    Cons

    The pay scale compared to other facilities is low. I eventually left for a higher paying job at Scripps. They also require a lot more re-education and re-certification courses than many other hospital systems.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for a job well done and pay them competitively. Do not require a safe patient mobilization class every year that is 4 hours long.

    Pros

    Good teamwork, decent pay, but really busy environment. Different shifts available and staffing has been good, with good support from MD's and laboratory technicians.

    Cons

    Clientele is very demanding and i-rate. ER cases are very common and not much trauma exposure. Waiting times for patients increased and not much coordination with staffing for ER procedure, sequence and flow.

    Pros

    They give notice to internal applicants so get into their system however you can by volunteering or participating in events held by the hospital.

    Cons

    As with any company, jobs are posted with experience in mind so it is highly competitive. Make sure to set yourself aside from the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Have more opportunities for job fairs for applicants.
