I can summarize my work experience in a few sentences. I worked at UVA for 23 years with distinguished service. My patient's loved me. It took less than 3 weeks for them to fire me. For violating a HIPPA policy. You are a shining star in academic nursing as long as you look good for the organization. Today, it is not about taking care of patients well, it is about looking good for the face of the company. At UVA I was the best asset when they could use me working 60+ hours a week. And paying me no overtime. I made a mistake and there simply was no discussion to reconcile. never harmed a patient. I just didn't look good any longer for risk management. So you get axed. that is the culture there as a nurse. Don't look good, spit you out.
Doctors can perform poorly, but they bring in the money and stay hired. Nurses make a mistake (one that gets paid what they think is well) and you get fired for them to hire another nurse making 25% LESS. that is the culture there now. I loved UVA for 22 years. Sadly, management and culture there is now so cutthroat and filled with fatty meat, it is impossible to trim. If you must, look here, otherwise spare yourself the toxicity.
Bureaucracy in its finest, fatty meet that you can't trim. Filled with management you have no idea what they do.
