Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Winchester:
"Great Hospital Experience for Licensed Practical Nurses!"
Pros: I like that I am assigned to the two medical surgical floors, but can float to ICU, Emergency Department, Cardiac Cath Lab, Labor and Delivery, and you name it! Secondly, I love the people I work with.
Cons: There is no pay transparency. It seemed like all the new hires past a certain date did not receive a med/animosity extra pay per hour like the older hires. It caused a lot of aminosity for a few months. Then out of nowhere our manager told all the new people they would be getting the extra pay. Poor communication about pay. It got to the point where nurses were sharing what they made with one another to make sure they were not getting the bad end of the deal.
