All I have to say, is if they want you to work shift work, it better pay some good money! who wants to afternoons, midnights, weekends, double shifts with a quick return in 8 hours! Don't forget, this position serves the entire facility, not just once dept ! or one small area of the hospital ! Lots of walking I will bet on this job, get ur roller skates – more... out! if this job doesn't pay $24 per hour to start, you need to start someplace else!! working for peanuts like $15-$18 per hour, even for an greenhorn in the trade, is nothing today! I know some guys want a job bad, and they know it too, but why work for nothing! Traffic in the area is very heavy, so u will be spending a lot of extra time going to work and coming home, and gas too!! Everyone in the place wants to work Monday to Friday dayshift, well that's not how a hospital should operate! High risk of getting sick on this job too, no matter how you say it, it just happens! when you are new everyone and everything sounds good, until you ask for help, and then they say "who are you"?? be real careful on this type of job, whatever hospital it is at, not just this one!! Sick is bad enough, Dead is worse! – less
Pros: working with people and creating relationships.
Cons: constant reorganization.
Working with employees to help solve issues and overcome barriers. Keep departments in-line with budgeted supplies, revenue and worked hours. Helped to promote a healing combined with a business culture. Management was committed to growth and innovation. While there were many challenges these helped me grow professionally and I was able to share these – more... experiences with other employees. Best part of the job was building relationships across the organization to achieve strategic goals. – less

Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Tampa, FL – February 20, 2013
Pay rate is awful, insurance is a joke, co-workers are awesome - some of the best nurses, doctors, techs I've ever worked with. Food is horrible. Ratios are great. . .when we have enough nurses, but usually we don't so we are understaffed. It's good enough, but I don' see myself staying here forever.
They also make you clock out for lunch. ..which – more... is a pain in the butt. – less
Hospital on the ground floor of changing healthcare in Tampa Bay
Unit Secretary (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – May 23, 2012
The AHS system is designed to deliver the highest quality of care to their patients. While working there I could see the changes that were being made to better the patient experience and overall satisfaction. On a typical day at work each nurse in our busy emergency room would see between 15 and 30 patients depending on the level of acuity. There is – more... a fine system in place where teamwork and accountability combine to provide a safe and efficient environment, conducive to great patient outcomes and satisfaction. The hardest part of the job is when people are too sick to get better. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a hand in their recovery. Being a nurse is a very rewarding career choice. – less
