- I worked in the Pediatric Oncology/BMT department(s) in the hospital. I had a good experience here. The staff are very kind, the doctors are friendly, and they all work together as a team. You sometimes have to float to NICU or Peds Med/Surg but everyone is friendly and helfpul 02/24/2020 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Madison. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Staff very friendly. They do 'team nursing' which means you and another RN will be assigned 8-10 patients to 'tag team' together. Not always a great system when you are team with a new grad who has no idea what's going on or a lazy nurse. You can end up doing 75% of the work for ten patients. It is way too many patients for one brain to keep up with. Very focused on patient satisfaction and scores. The nurse manager never once said hello or introduced herself in the 3 months I was there. The other staff is very friendly but it is a very young staff and many are new grads. Very scary during codes or critical situations. They will also try to schedule you every thursday, friday, saturday unless you speak up. Overall, good experience because nurses and doctors were nice. But a lot of things they do there make no sense. They have a very high turn over for a reason. Lastly, HUGE amount of psych patients. You could easily end up with 4-5 psych patients plus 4-5 medical patients on your 'team'. Then you pray your buddy nurse isn't lazy/incompetent.
08/23/2017 Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was rented an airbnb. Housing was located in city of nashville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. rented an airbnb. worked out great.
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Yet another HCA facility with poor management causing their
staff to run for the hills. They cant keep staff and they
are chronically understaffed. No techs or any ancillary staff. Management is out of touch and is focused on insignificant things like pt call backs and rounding. They also will put any nurse in a bad situation to benefit themselves. For instance the manager flat out lied to the rest of management stating I had charge nurse skills (I have never charged). They gave me 6 hours orientation and threw me to the wolves. Overall, a poorly run dept and I would not be surprised if they turnover all their staff in the next few months. 06/13/2016 Housing was approximately 1.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Village at Vanderbilt. Housing was located in city of Nashville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Loved this location, I found it on my own
- I worked in the MICU department(s) in the hospital. Worked MICU. Loved Working with this group of folks, But the agency had to go through Paralon since it is an HCA facility. The patients were well satisfied with their care. The Regular staff was a bit fed up with administration and I can't blame them. I live 1.5 hours away so housing was not an issue, stayed in a motel for 2 days then home. I worked the night shift. I do know that it is a very entertaining town. Enjoy Printers alley, Great BBQ here too. Best of luck to you all. Paralon had band me 6 years ago and didn't allow me to work there even now, but they are good about doing that because you failed to obtain a pillow!!!! 05/31/2015 Housing was approximately 60 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Home. Housing was located in city of Home. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. This area is not applicable to my experience.
- I worked in the 2central gyno post op department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is very traveler friendly. They are happy for the extra help. I am floated to many areas and some may not like that. But it keeps things interesting for me. The staffing is excellent and I never feel overworked. The area has lots to do and the country surrounding this city is beautiful. People are friendly here. Traffic is horrible though. Expensive housing but average for city prices. Excellent hospital. Highly recommend! 11/05/2014 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Stayed in a condo . Housing was located in city of Brentwood. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I took the stipend and found a lady renting a room in her condo for $400 a month! Got so lucky. She only rents to travelers. We get along great and the price is unbeatable.
