    Pros

    Salary is competitive and benefits are very nice. Uniforms are provided.

    Cons

    Staffing is being cut at every turn now, patient/nurse safety is at risk regularly with budget cuts, unit management does not advocate for unit needs. Staff is set up to fail, and it is exhausting. Parking is also almost a mile away.

    Advice to Management

    You don't "need to try" a bad idea in order to know it is bad - skeleton staffing is not safe, and this is already known in healthcare!
