Watauga Medical Center Earns Honor From Nurse.org

Nurse.org, the web’s leading career site for nurses, has recognized Watauga Medical Center as one of the best hospitals for nurses to work for in North Carolina. Over the past two years, Nurse.org has collected 1,598 reviews by nurses at 109 North Carolina hospitals about their workplace satisfaction. The data from the reviews from North Carolina state revealed that Watauga Medical Center has one of the highest levels of job satisfaction among its nurses.

Reviewers cited approachable management, flexible scheduling, and great leadership as the basis for the 4.0 star rating with 91% of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer.

Nurse.org’s Product Manager, Phillip Lee, congratulated Watauga Medical Center on this achievement saying, “We’re excited to be able to recognize Watauga Medical Center for providing an excellent work environment for nurses. Our survey data shows that Watauga Medical Center has one of the highest nurse job satisfaction rates in the state.”

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.

Making the list of top hospitals shows the facility is focused on nurse satisfaction. Nurse recruitment — a challenge today — becomes easier when the hospital can demonstrate its commitment to nurses by pointing to an unbiased source.
