Inconsistent work culture between units
Staff RN (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 28, 2017
Work culture varies between units, due to Nurse Managers fairly removed from the day to day operations, and likely due to being non-union. Lateral hostility occurs and is allowed in some units. Experienced RNs at times targeted for termination, due to higher paid than inexperienced RNs. Positive input from Nurse Managers infrequent. Most feedback from Nurse Managers and educators is corrective and punitive. Institutional biases covertly Very present, though stated not. RNs move on silently, exit feedback not accepted. The most enjoyable part of working there is the reward of patient-nurse interaction, and the satisfaction of doing a good job, whether appreciated for it by the Nurse Manager or peer RNs or not. Parking is somewhat challenging, costly to day shift RNs, can be free for night shift.
