There are more than 100 RNs at Children's with more than 20 years of service each! Nurses have guaranteed access to part-time positions after several years, and there are no mandatory weekends after 20 years of service. Nurses get lon- gevity raises in addition to yearly cost-of-living raises and five weeks of vacation after 10 years. RNs have the opportunity to transfer to another unit and receive full specialty training before the position is opened up to outside RNs. I transferred from med-surg to oncology and was fully trained in pediatric oncology, which made me feel renewed in what I was doing." — Martha Kuhl, RN CNA Treasurer and Board of Directors UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Oakland, Calif.
