Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

RN ICU

PROS:

For me, pros to this facility include: patient population diversity (trauma, surgery,neurological, plastics, cardiac and medical). Level 4 trauma center and teaching hospital. Newly built ICU unit. Pay rates, closeness of coworkers, patient To RN ratio 2:1 and sufficient ancillary staff.

CONS:

For me, the biggest con to working at this intensive care unit is the scheduling.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Caring organization

PROS:

High quality, caring people work there. It is a teaching hospital so nurses work closely with hospitalists and residents. The hospital has a lot of speciality units available and it is a level III trauma center so there is a lot of opportunity to learn new skills there.

CONS:

Sometimes there are staff shortages which make for high patient ratios. The surrounding area is rural so it may not appeal to those who like urban environments. It can be a long commute to more populated areas. Also being rural there aren't all of the amenities that some people are used to having close by.

They will float you to any unit without any orientation to that unit The patient ratio at times can be 6-7 on any unit.Mangement is not truthful and will say anything to get you to agree to work their shifts

Three Stars

PROS:

It is extremely busy and fast paced. I currently work on a Hospitalist- med-surgical unit. We get the sickest of the sick, so it can get overwhelming very quickly. The doctor's are wonderful to work with, the computer system is top notch, the pharmacy is excellent! The pay is very, very good the highest in my area. The patient to nurse ratio is marginal at best.

CONS:

None
