Pros: great benefits, great people and great time
Cons: high stress and high demand on each member of the team
Westchester Medical Center (WMC) is a level 1 Trauma Center and has the best Nursing staff ever. Working in the Nursing Resource Center ( Nurse Staffing Office) is a very demanding position, but you learn a lot. We were a 13 staff office which ran the Staffing office 24/7. We dealt with a nursing staff of about 2000 RNs, NAs, HCs, etc. We did their schedules, timecards, time and leave, and also made sure that the floors were staffed to the proper Nurse/Patient Ratio for each floor and each specialty. I handled the NPs and PAs. I handled all their schedules, timecards, OT approvals in the Kronos system after VP or Director's approval, either written or verbal. Each day was different from the other. We became a close knit office and a strong team. To this day we keep in contact.
