        I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        There are many opportunities to practice overall nursing skills. Also, UVAHS has a variety of specialized units that a nurse can choose to work at. In addition, the department for employee education always encourages and provides monthly in-services for all healthcare workers to update on current clinical practices; as well as, the nursing association at the hospital takes a hierarchical structure to check on "health"...

        Cons

        Since UVAHS is a tertiary hospital in the area, it is almost always busy to work at inpatient units. The job "pushes" workers not only good but bad ways. It is sometimes difficult to get PTOs accepted due to ever-lasting nursing shortage. Thus, The hospital is for people who do not mind and like the busy-to-hectic environment.

        Advice to Management

        More PTOs should be accepted.

        Pros

        Great town and great benefits.

        Cons

        Pretty much a fixed salary. Minimal chance for promotion or pay raise. I'm sure its better for a certified health professional.

        I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Smart medical pros to work with, good health plan, gym, football tickets. Some job security as there will always be a need for a university and hospital.

        Cons

        Clocking in and clocking out as if we're janitors, charged for using the coffee maker, leaky roofs, afraid of the cloud. Hacked email systems and practices that are so far behind the corporate world. Lousy change management. They wanted us to take PTO for a team building event.
