Not an enjoyable place to work
Ambulatory Care Nurse (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – November 2, 2018
I've worked for Kaiser for over 20 years. I took a per diem position so that I can work at other hospitals where the moral is higher and where they are willing to train as Kaiser does not believe in training employees. Kaiser is very competitive! Working in the hospital is better as the RN's are a little more of team players than the RN's in Ambulatory Care, which can be very toxic. Management across the board is disorganized. There is a great deal of turnover because everyone in management is very stressed and the managers are RN's that have left floor nursing to work their way up the ladder. The ambulatory care RN's have attitudes. They think very highly of their positions because their jobs are much easier then the hospital and they get paid the same. If you are a laid back RN or passive in anyway, the RN's will try to sabotage you and will lie about you to get you fired. Sad to say, but it's the old saying is true. "If you can't handle the heat, than stay out of the kitchen". That is the atttitude of a lot of the nurses.
