Nurse.org, a career site for nurses, has recognized Woman’s Hospital as one of the top hospitals for nurses to work for in Louisiana. Over the past two years, Nurse.org has collected 944 reviews by nurses at 111 Louisiana hospitals about their workplace satisfaction. The data from the reviews from Louisiana revealed that Woman’s Hospital has one of the highest levels of job satisfaction among its nurses.
Nurse.org provides a safe platform on which nurses leave honest workplace reviews. Completely anonymous, nurses share their opinions about culture, nurse-to-patient ratios, and other matters important to them. Reviewers cited supportive coworkers, flexible scheduling and competitive pay as the basis for the 4.7 star rating, with 100 percent of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer. Survey data shows the hospital ranks in the top 2 percent in the state for nurse job satisfaction.
Earlier this year, Woman’s attained Magnet® recognition for the third time. The recognition from American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is the highest honor an organization can receive for professional nursing practice and distinguishes healthcare organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. This credential is shared with only 451 out of nearly 6,300 U.S. healthcare organizations. In 2006, Woman’s was the first hospital in Baton Rouge to be recognized as a Magnet® facility.
