Punitive Nursing Administration, No chance for full time or advancement.
RN staff nurse (Former Employee) – I would rather not say. – December 15, 2015
I worked part-time for 1 yr. The new hire nurse manager had NO experience in the specialty or in management. She scheduled me to work every weekend and holiday. The night shift nurse called off a lot and I was forced to work over because there was no prn pool. Since I was part time, I did not get overtime for it. I was written up after working there about 5 weeks for forgetting to document something. The nurse manager could have just told me about it the next day & I would have taken care of it! I have been a nurse +20 yrs and I found this culture to be extremely punitive. I have been a manager & I never treated staff like that. In the year that I was there, I didn't get a performance review just the snotty manager's occasional nit-picking. I finally quit because the manager would not change my schedule. If I had wanted to work every weekend, I would have taken a weekend job at the bigger hospitals for premium pay. I loved my patients and coworkers. I had never been written up in any other job and I was told that I was an excellent nurse by other nurses and doctors who had been my patients. Your loss Washington Hospital.
You get a regular paycheck. My co-workers were dedicated & hardworking.
Rigid, Arrogant, Punitive Culture, no chance for full time.
