I love working for Duke. The benefits are amazing, the teamwork is record breaking and the dedication to patient safety and security is unmatched.
Customer service I always exceptional. Not because I am employed by this company. Before I started working here I received the same service. I had my daughter at this same location because of this. My family has a retirement history with this company. The entity is huge and they are a family oriented place. The benefits are good but could be better when it comes to some of the copays. Maternity leave should automatically be covered for both mom and dads. I think it is essential to give employees that time to bond with family's. The growth opportunities are limitless because of the size of the company. Management is great once you land in the a field you love. I would say move around and enjoy the benefits of learning new things. Compensation is competitive but it based on experience. I would say they could giving people with no experience could lead to finding more valuable employee's. People wait around a while to get the duke experience but get turned down because of not having it.
Duke is a great place to work for. I like working here because my hours are flexible and I am able to get my work done in a timely manner. Some of the people that I work with are not so revealing to work with however the team work effort is what is most important
I enjoy working in a culturally diverse environment, where I can continue to learn. It is not easy to survive as a travel nurse in an unfamiliar environment. My teammates are helpful, plentiful with information and have a passion for Oncology. I do not mind going the extra mile to assist my patients. Giving back to those unfortunate than oneself is truly my passion. I plan to grow with my organization and possibly get hired on to take advantage of all the Duke University Hospital’s benefits. With consistency and preparation, I will be successful as an advanced nurse practitioner.
I have worked here 12+ years. I Love my job and the people I work with in my department. We are a respectful and tight knit group. We look after each other and if anyone needs anything we always step in and assist each other. We are close enough that we enjoy learning about each other’s different culture. We do quarterly themed lunches and bring in food from each culture. Occasionally we do things offsite and invite all in department including family. I feel this has promoted a great work environment. We have monthly staff meetings that keep us updated on what is going on.
Duke Hospital is the place you want to be at for research based, evolving, and autonomous nursing practice. I have been able to care for complex patients that have really challenged my nursing practice and critical thinking skills. Duke has a lot of benefits you can take advantage from and the scheduling is about as flexible as it possibly could be. With a plethora of units and settings to work in, there is something for every RN at Duke!
Wonderful teamwork and environment with plenty of benefits such as tuition assistance, tuition repayment, retirement, and pension plans. For families without children the health coverage is average, however, can be costly for large families.
Duke has been a great organization to work for. Each unit it different, but it is clear the hospital works as one cohesive organization. The experiences are unlimited and they really care for their employees.
Working at duke has helped me a lot I now really have a passion with interacting with people as well as helping people. From a UNC fan to a semi Duke fan I must say this is by far one of the best jobs I've worked in my 24 years.
Working as a registered nurse at Duke has opened an endless amount of doors for furthering my career. The experience gained here was second to none.
Duke University Hospital is a world-renouned Hospital full of wonderful staff and faculty members. It provides its patients with excellent patient care, and hosts some of the best healthcare providers. Providers put their patients first in hopes to give them a speedy recovery in a comfortable, friendly environment. One thing I would change is the mode of communication between caregivers such as nurse assistants and nurses. Many times, details can be overlooked when giving report and in turn, affects how someone can provide the quality care the patient deserves. Communication is very important in this field, and reading charts can sometimes be left to interpretation. When establishing rapport, the caregiver has a general sense of what the patient likes and dislikes, and can relay that to the next shift caregiver during report. However, effective communication must be taught and utilized in order to strive to completing the goal of 100% fulfilled patient satisfaction.
Pay for my position is very good, I make the minimum and it is still good. I love the work environment, we have events around the office and we all get along. Lots of great benefits as well.
As a new Duke University Hospital employee, the Duke entity has exceeded my expectations. There are many educational opportunities and incentives. The work culture is phenomenal and I feel very supported by my manager and all staff. Teamwork is evident and all colleagues have been truly welcoming. I am thoroughly enjoying my time here as a Duke employee and plan to continue my career here.
I have been an employee since 2017 and the staff I have been working with have been beyond supportive and helpful.
Excellent learning environment, there is always a chance to grow and experience something new every shift.
In my workplace, there are mostly women, so it would be nice to have more diversity in terms of gender and race.
With almost 10 years with this company, I have watched it evolve a lot. It has gotten better and I enjoy being apart of the Duke team.
