Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

2 years service, first hospital job

PROS:

Scheduling (for employees, maybe not travelers--although they do allow trades with a large # of staff), nurse-patient ratios, supportive leadership, strong teamwork and communication/respect between interdisciplinary members, high acuity/specialized care, Magnet Status (Excellent place to be a nurse!)

CONS:

Aurora is on the East side of Denver, not the West... Commuting here is not my fav... (I'm a mountain junkie/live in a small town am hour away). This hospital seeks to pay a median wage, never the highest, but also never the lowest.
