    I have been working at University of Nebraska Medical Center part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We are a small research unit in the College of Medicine but it is really wonderful. My PI couldn't be nicer or more understanding and the medical students and interns we work with are very astute.

    Cons

    The downside is that my current position is only part-time. I would be happy to work there full time.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the flexibility that comes along with this job. There is a lot of room for asking questions and thinking creatively. I appreciate that my PI does not try to micro-manage my work.

    I have been working at University of Nebraska Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training and progression into management opportunities. Great teamwork and coworkers.

    Cons

    Leads taking full staff at this point, acuity level of patients in a trauma center getting ridiculous for RN to patient ration of 5:1 nights, 4:1 days. Staff if short always. Two new CEOs in two years. New CNO is absent with RNs worries. 3 hrs PTO earned per pay period not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Our patients are very sick and require better ratios on the staff floors. Neuro for example. Please have the CNO come work a night shift taking full or load with only coworkers and care tech's to assist. I'd be willing to bet she would come to realise our complaints are not just complaints. Patient safety first.
