Experience with Nursing Manager-type positions at the DMC


  • Specializes in Med/Surg, International Health, Psych. Has 8 years experience.

Might anyone have any experience working as a Nurse Patient Services Manager, Bed Manager, Clinical Services Manager or some other nursing non-unit based position at the DMC? If so, could you please be so kind as to share your experience in regards to work climate, job satisfaction, salary and hours? I understand that these are not hourly, but salaried positions. Does that work out to be better?

Most of my friends who are in these positions end up putting many more hours in than 40 a week. One recently left the manager position to be a staff nurse and makes out much better financially with hourly pay. Another I know was recently about to negotiate a position but remain hourly.
