Pros: beautiful hospital and enviornment. definitely a good place to work.
Cons: at times nurses seemed isolated due to size of unit.
I have worked in a number of hospitals since my move to the eastern board of the USA.

Challenges that I had was mainly in my goal to give – more... the best care possible...a challenge that I found possible to meet in the Sacred Heart Hospital . I can honestly say that my co workers were a great group of nurses willing to pitch in and help when asked and generally positive and enjoyable to work with. At the time I worked at the hospital I found management for the most part on the scene, a listening ear and did seek ways to improve nursing processes . – less

I enjoyed most the learning – more... process, being able to catch onto something and able to perform it without someone telling me. – less
