Pros: request your own scheduled days
Cons: 12 hour shifts only
Seton Medical Center is mission-driven, but has lost most of its nurse voice. In the nine years I've worked here, there has been a significant culture shift. Where nursing once felt valued, now feels like a means to an end-- patient satisfaction is now the value. While important, patient satisfaction is not the end-all, be-all, and morale is down on the nursing units. Seton once offered flexible hours with 4-, 8-, and 12-hour shift options, but as of summer 2014 there are only 12-hour shifts which is a hardship and, I believe, dangerous. The nursing care provided here is top-notch, and there is a big push for ADN nurses to complete their BSN.
