Great teaching hospital environment
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – September 19, 2017
I worked here while in nursing school at this hospital, and I loved the community I found in this hospital. It is a magnet-designated hospital, and is a highly respected teaching hospital for many reasons. I experienced no lateral violence within the nursing staff and community, because these nurses do not "eat their young." Nurses at OSF take pride in the fact that this hospital is continuously developing and growing strong and professional nurses, and I have found that the experienced nurses take part in this too, coming alongside new nurses, nursing students, and CNA's, and teaching them valuable skills and knowledge, to prepare them for growth and advancement in their professional nursing careers. I very much appreciate all that I have gained as a student and CNA at OSF--knowledge, skills, confidence, and readiness for a career in nursing.
Beneficial work environment, strong work ethic, passionate nurses, compassionate and caring workers
Hours not flexible, poor management from unit supervisors
