Since posting this I've become employed at Naval Hospital. I've been there almost three years and really like it! I work L&D and we follow AWHONN guidelines. Nurse to pt ratios are usually very good. Like any job there are issues or bad days from time to time but overall I'm very satisfied. Our DIVO (unit manager) goes to bat for us and is very supportive. The only draw back is the huge amount of training, paperwork, and time card issues we have to deal with as nurses. However, in the grand scheme of things most days are good! The pay for this area is great for GS nurses. By far a better job than any i've had!
