Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Registered Nurse in ACT Health

Bullying culture

Although ACT Health has several different departments/areas with a multidisciplinary workforce, it is generally known for its competitive and bullying culture especially among its management. Further, there is very little support for employees who are victims of bullying although there is the free employee assistance program (EAP) offered to all public servants seeking counselling services. The hardest part of the job is work-life balance, particularly for nurses on the wards as they are often required to work on a rotating roster of shifts that are outside normal work or school hours. Nurses in this organisation are often not free to choose the shifts that are suitable for them and face poor chances of promotion unless they work full time and have good relationships with managers/key people. For this reason, those who wish to study or who have care-giving roles are better off working casually which improves work-life balance but limits career development. In my opinion, the most enjoyable part of nursing is interacting with people from diverse backgrounds and being able to make a real difference in their lives through the care I give them.
