Many of the managers and educators have very little actual nursing experience, which leads to a situation where no one knows what they are doing. Assistant CNOs and many of the nursing directors have about 2 years of floor experience, and the educators even less. The educators do not educate, they teach endless CPR classes and Nursing Orientation, since the turnover rate is so high. They do not spend time on the floor helping nurses understand their jobs. It is a joke. I learned from old nurses with many years experience, and you cannot find this at MCH. In fact, the smarter and more experienced you are, the less likely you are to be in a position of teaching and helping others. They seem to only put those with very little experience in leadership positions.
Nurses have 6-7 patients a piece, which is way too many- while all the while piling more and more for the nurse to do, without the adequate tools to do so. The computers don't work, so you cant do your job. There is an atmosphere of bullying and retaliation among leaders that regular folks cannot break through. If you are not in their clique, you will never be promoted.
