Fast-paced work environment that requires the ability to manage multiple projects and priorities. A collaborative culture within the department but can be difficult to navigate the matrix organization.

They are very inconsistent in pt care. They are mostly homegrown locals working in Nursing Leadership and do not offer a dynamic environment or collegiality.

If you enjoy condescending managers, this is the place to be. Unless you have the "right" license, managers and those above you place your value far below their level.
If you consistently strive to be honest in your work, you are treated with disdain .Higher-ups will insinuate that you are lying if your description of events differs from those with a higher degree.

The University claims a culture of respect, yet shows little to none for its employees.
Pros
pay is adequate
Cons
treatment of employees

They are often MIA, Residents say they don't get any support. Attendings often caught sleeping during work hours. Chasing females around. Use job as dating vehicle or nanny recruitment. Attendings see patients only 2.5 days a week. They disappear during the day with patients left waiting in the chair. Always late. Never meet with team. No communication.

I thought there would be more opportunities to learn and advance. At times I feel there is a punitive culture and not enough praise. The work environment fluctuates without notice.

Typical "mission statement" toting company where the mission statement and the other things on the wall really don't reflect the reality. If you're transferring to the hospital for a sense of purpose and to escape the corporate grind be sure to enjoy your first couple of months before you realize how much of a business this is.

Productive, innovative worked as clinician 3, charge nurse occasionally.
Voted Er nurse of the year. Last five years I worked as a PACU nurse.

Received recognition for discovering that patient from a state mental

health institution were he was total isolation secondary to his violent

behavior. This information was relayed to my charge nurse, who let the Nurse Manager on unit was to go. As a result security guards syed in patients room twenty four hours daily, until patient was returned to

mental institution.

Employees are treated as expendable at best or as little more than refuse at worst. Nepotism runs rampant, petty backbiting and gossip abound, and every group of employees disrespects every other group of employees. Working here drained my will to live.

An 8 hr. day easily turns into a 10-12 hr day w/o bathroom and lunch breaks. Salaried staff are taken advantage of since they receive no overtime pay. There are many opportunities for learning and being an academic medical center, there are top-notch research facilities to improve patient care. Management is too far removed from the front line staff and does not understand needs related to patient care. They often mandate policies without input of front line staff which results in failure. The most difficult part of the job is all the paper work. The best part is helping patients and knowing I made a difference in their life that day.

I came in as a travel nurse and did staff relief and various outpatient clinics. Overall the nursing supervisors were rude and very inappreciative of the help. Most of the fellow nurses were nice and helpful. Lots and lots of drama and gossip on the units.
