Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

No incentives for loyal long term nurses

1
PROS:

Pay is ok but they max you out pretty quick without incentives to stay. Also supervisors are biased and unfare.

CONS:

Same as above

Step-down

Great Place for Beginning Nurses

4
PROS:

Never had any issues with coworkers. I enjoyed working a 5 and 2 rotation, but not every unit in the hospital provides that type of schedule. The hospital has just recently switched to Sorian for charting and health information and it has made charting much easier for us. My PCC advocated for us and made sure we were properly staffed to the best of her ability. In our Stepdown unit, we had a 3-4:1 patients to nurse ratio.

CONS:

Pay is below national average.

Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU)

RN

4
PROS:

Co-workers are wonderful, great spirit here. Great learning environment for new nurses, and good insurance if you stay in the area.

CONS:

Pay low for retention, staffing ratios are not by aquity, administration not nurse friendly.
