    Pros

    Great people who are there to serve patients and provide high quality care.

    Cons

    In the non clinical departments, opportunity for career growth are slim. It's a demanding place to work and you cab daily get burnt out. Opportunity for flexibility for better work/life balance are slim.

    Pros

    This is an amazing organization that promotes patient and family centered care. Through the Magnet designation, they provide nursing with a voice. We are supported in many ways with the most up to date technology and evidence based practice research to continue reinforcing or perfecting our skill set at the bedside. Our senior leadership is frequently reviewing ways to express their gratitude to the bedside care providers.

    Cons

    Pay is not as great as our competitors even though benefits are amazing. For being known as the largest hospital, only Level I Taruma Center in our region, and the place for excellent treatment of the highest acuity of patients, it is surprising that hourly salary is not more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    When marketing our amazing organization, it's important to speak to the heart of a nurse. Although pay is not the highest in the area, we could focus on the fact that we promote evidence based practice through research and the use of the most up to date technology for the best patient outcomes. Nurses became nurses to treat patients, not for the money. Hourly compensation for certifications, advanced degrees and precepting could also be beneficial.
