Ambulatory Care

Poor Management

PROS:

Beautiful new hospital on the Bering Sea, beautiful wildlife Grateful patients, Some great helpful coworkers. Opportunity to learn Alaskan Native Culture, lot of opportunities to watch the Northern Lights.

CONS:

Management if very controlling with no opportunity for self improvement. Some coworkers are very angry and depressed and take their anger out on other employees and patients. Too dark during the days and too cold to do many activities outside in the winter.

Geriatrics (Gerontology)

LPN CHARGE NURSE

PROS:

Facility and pay are both great. The beaches are excellent and you can walk almost everywhere and cabs are really inexpendive and you don't wait long to be picked up.

CONS:

Coworkers (not all) and housing. 3- 4 people sharing 1 bathroom can be a little nerve wrackong, especially when all of you work the same shift and you all need to shower before work.

Case Management (CM)

Poor Management

PROS:

Beautiful Hospital, coworkers, opportunities

CONS:

Management both in the unit and hospital wide were very poor. No continuity of management. Untrained managers. Director of nursing was not a nurse and had no idea what nurses do on a day-to-day basis.

Geriatrics (Gerontology)

Long term nursing

PROS:

The area the facility is in a beautiful area. The summer is awesome up here and fishing is great. I recommend it to everyone!

CONS:

The distance to the lower 48. I'd like to be closer to home, but the beauty and serenity somehow makes up for it.

Ambulatory Care

Director of Nurses

PROS:

Beautiful area, good co-workers, good pay, full service nursing facility, beautiful new buildings, fishing, hunting, berry picking. In the winter Iditarod week is awesome!

CONS:

Isolation, nothing in town, nowhere to shop

Long-Term Care (LTC)

Director of Nurses, LTC

PROS:

Coworkers, salary, location, small facility, tobacco free campus, small town

CONS:

Nome is very isolated. It's good for a couple of tours but the need to go back to civilization as we know it is necessary, even for a short time.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Was a travel assignment

PROS:

Wonderful co workers - pharmacy was great to work with . A variety of things to work with, the hospital, the culture, the villages.

CONS:

Pay was reasonable - I have worked in Barrow and Nome is good - they have 3 roads and a lot of gold miners

Emergency Room (ER)

Home Sweet Nome

PROS:

Close knit, friendly and active community. Low nurse to patient ratio. Decent pay and good benefits. Ability to cross train and able to pick up shifts in other departments for overtime. Team atmosphere.

CONS:

Rural, fly in access only. Expensive internet services.

Case Management (CM)

Poor Management

PROS:

Friendly coworkers who are very helpful and care deeply for their patients

Management consistently change the rules so staff do not know what to do. They lay off staff for no apparent reasons and keep staff who sexually and verbally abuse coworkers. No consistency in management.

None
