WK Bossier Health Center Cited as Top Nurse Employer in Northwest Louisiana

Dec 01, 2017

WK Bossier Health Center has been recognized as one of the top hospitals for nurses to work for in Louisiana and the leading one in north Louisiana. Over the past two years, nurse.org, the web’s leading career site for nurses, collected more than 900 reviews by nurses at 111 Louisiana hospitals about their workplace satisfaction.

Reviews of WK Bossier reveal the hospital has one of the highest levels of job satisfaction among its nurses. Reviewers site supportive coworkers, flexible scheduling and competitive pay as the basis for the 4.2 (out of 5) star rating with 94 percent of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer.

“We work really hard to foster an environment where our nurses can thrive, be successful and have a positive impact on our community,” said Sharon Hudnell, RN, director of nursing at WK Bossier. “This recognition is particularly gratifying because the comments are totally unsolicited.”

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.

“At WK Bossier we put emphasis on listening to our nurses and taking care of patients,” Hudnell said. “It is rewarding when people recognize managers go out of their way to listen to their employees … Oftentimes, they don’t feel that support.”
