Trading on an old reputation
RN, BSN (Current Employee) – vanderbilt childrens outpatient – January 8, 2017
Work life balance? As long as you get the work done, and management has a life, that's what they call balance.
Compensation is not competitive. Vanderbilt has many educational offerings but due to horrendous staff shortages you are never allowed to attend any. Benefits and parking are quite expensive, essentially you pay to work here.
Management is lacking, obvious favoritism, hostile treatment by management if you are not among the few favorites, and unbelievably the senior management has no nursing background!
High stress, chaotic, poor & inconsistent management.
A lot of "not my patient, not my problem" and 'do more with less' is the standard.
I learned Vanderbilt looks good on a résumé, so get in and move on as soon as possible.
under staffed, under appreciated, under paid, parking is very expensive
