Neurology ICU (Neuro ICU)

Four Stars

PROS:

Staffing ratios are excellent; my unit director will come in and take patients before you would ever be asked to be tripled...not once has anyone been tripled in the year and a half I have been there. Neuro has a lot of disability and it can be emotionally wearying to put so much work into helping people and have patients "make" it when they will probably never be capable of interacting with the world or those around them again. I love working here and I love my unit. As a brand new nurse it was an excellent place to start. If you are a brand new nurse you will be part of the year long residency program that is hopefully being improved...but if you leave for any reason before it is complete you will never be eligible for re-hire so it doubles as a contract without getting contract rates or a sign on bonus.

CONS:

None
