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.

Director of Nurses, LTC

PROS:

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