    Pros

    Intelligent professors/colleagues, paid well, and flexibility.

    Cons

    Need a good supervisor who has plenty of work so that you can develop your skills

    Advice to Management

    Better understand that some professors don't need graduate assistants (GAs), so some graduate students do little-to-no work. The professors that don't really need a GA should not be given one and the stipend that comes with the GA should be allocated to other GAs that are working hard.

    Pros

    Teaching facility and state benefits

    Cons

    State buget problem trickle down to the hospital bugets. This negativity impacts RN staffing and the ancillary support availability. This inadvertently lends itself to potential unsafe senarios, delay of care and other safety issues.

    Advice to Management

    Nurse are at the front lines in the provision of care. Nurses are a vital part of the of the team that affects length of stay, outcomes and press ganey results therefore it is vital to provide adequate RN staffing and ancillary support staff so nurses can positively impact the quality of care.
