Obstetrics

Amazing teaching facility, very patient orientated

PROS:

Pay is super, co workers are great! It's a teaching facility, lots of learning going on, working with 1st, 2nd and 3rd year residents is a challenge

CONS:

Working nites, not used to it. Always worked days before an adjustment for me! Traffic to and from military base is crazy!

Postpartum (Perinatal)

Mother/Baby Nurse night shift

PROS:

Floor is full of great, helpful co-workers. Not sure how pay is comparable to civilian hospitals, but night and weekend differential is offered.

CONS:

Schedule is inflexible, no cafeteria support for night shift workers. Not always enough time allotted for patient care and additional training requirements.

Postpartum (Perinatal)

Mother/Baby Nurse

PROS:

Supporting military community Can obtain valuable nursing experience Gain time towards Federal service if have previous military background

CONS:

Scheduling is completely inflexible. Pay will never reflect level of education, only time in service. Seniority can keep new nurses from obtaining vacation time.

Pediatric

PROS:

Co-workers are great, love our clinic and our families, I love the teaching environment, we have resident program and we are able to his learning experiences with them.

Psychiatric (Mental Health)

PROS:

CONS:

Staffing

Long-Term Acute Care (LTAC)

Cna

PROS:

Coworkers are amazing. Facility is impeccable, pay is great, residents and patients are friendly. Human resources are friendly and helpful. The view is beautiful.

CONS:

Hard to schedule days off only because if short staff. The facility is clean but it is a little further to get to, and parking for staff is far from the door.

Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU)

One Star

PROS:

None

CONS:

The VA staff are not as conscientious about infection control than civilian staff. I don't know why. Maybe they don't train them about how bacteria and germs are spread. The unit managers are condescending, punitive. One is even humiliating because of the way he admonishes the staff in front of everyone. This behavior is not in response to any serious fault of the staff. It is not appropriate (tenpenny). I don't think that the VA nursing schools have even heard of the QSEN competencies that are required in new curriculum. That is the only reason I can explain the lack of compassion or respect for human life (disregarding infection control standards for patient safety).

Telemetry

Three Stars

PROS:

Be ready to be patient

CONS:

None

Psychiatric (Mental Health)

Five Stars

PROS:

Atmosphere of excellence Working towards becoming a HRO by applying Studer, Arbinger, and Team STEPS.

None
