Poor staffing, MedStar as a corporation makes poor financial decisions, holiday scheduling is not ideal.

Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU)

Gained more knowledge & experinence, it enables me utilize it in my practice.

Very good learning environment, pay scale is good, patient nurse ratio is 1:1 critical patients and 1:2 non critical patients. Coworkers are very professional, helpful and work as a team.

Wocn

Acuity of patients co workers. I learn something new everyday. The pay scale is high. We are very independent.

Commute, this is a very large hospital and at times this can be difficult. We do not have a wocn as a director. For some in our department, there is no accountability.

Neuroscience (Neurological, Neurology)

RN

PROS:

Coworkers

CONS:

The facility is in bad condition. Travel nurses are floated to other units frequently and often in the middle of your shift. You may work 0700-1500 in one unit then have to give report in the unit you are leaving only to go pick up a full load of new patients from 1500 to 1900 in another unit. I would not go back on a travel contract there again.

PACU (Post-Anasthesia, Recovery Room, PAR)

Great

PROS:

Conveniently located close to metro station and metro buses route. Located close to two university, day care and restaurants, lounge, shopping and down town Washington DC.
