Great place to work for new graduate nurse. So much to learn in a big teaching hospital. Great support in new graduate residency program. Orientation process was great. Continued support throughout first year.
CNA/HUC (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – September 26, 2017
Duke is one of the best hospitals in NC. We excel in many categories. Dukes staff and administration always work our hardest to provide top quality care meeting all state and federal regulations. Every opinion matters and at Duke we want all our patients to have the best experience. 12 hours can be a long day but because we're like family, time together makes a work day easy and workable.
Clinician (pulmonary) (Former Employee) – Medical Center beside Duke Raleigh – September 17, 2017
Worked in one of the clinics (PDC clinic) and it was the worse place I've ever worked. The environment was stressful for everyone EVERYDAY! The doctors that run the facility are not uplifting and feel that the employees are beneath them. The Doctors don't care about the level of stress they put on the staff. Two doctors seem to be bipolar and like to scream not only at the clinical staff but at some of the patients. My time at the clinic was short and I would NEVER recommend anyone to work at this place.
Stressful atmosphere, management that's not knowledgeable of clinical jobs, and the Doctors attitudes.
Worked on a medicine unit where I delivered care to pulmonary and renal patients. It was a very busy floor. Usually you had 5-6 patients which made it very busy day. Being a medicine unit most patients had a lot of medications including insulin to administer. I learned about kidney and lung transplants, and ventilator patients. The management and charge nurses on the floor were very supportive and helpful. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was the med administration having your patients in different areas of the unit. Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new friends which I still have and just the joy of taking care of my patients. On occasion lunch or treats would be served.
PRMO employee (Former Employee) – Duke South – August 20, 2017
Duke is Physician focused, and it is an impressive teaching opportunity for that group. There is still a lack of professionalism afforded to the clinical staff, including some Advanced Practice providers. Management can make or break your experience at Duke. I suggest you go with your first impression after an interview as some leadership short comings are a weakness.
Great opportunity to learn in the right department
The first six months at Duke in the department I worked in was miserable. The other nurses were negative and each and every one did things differently for the most basics of things. The manager asked me to chart under other nurses login and many other issues were present, making it impossible to work.
the hardest part of the day is when i have to go home. the students is a blessing to work with. i enjoy talking with them about thier culture and there goals. Mangement is exciting because its always someone new.
The hardest part of my job was understanding the work culture and value. There was not to much caring towards the employees. Management did not focus on the value of the employee but just the value of the patient.
nice place to work.I met a lot of nice people.you can move up if you want to move up.or change to another department.the hardest part is learning your way around.management is o.k because you have to work with people from all over. Go to your department get your work spot and and start your job.That is your work day
building up your pto time and working over time.
getting lost when you first start working at Duke North
