You will float more than being on the unit you’re actually contracted for. There are several ICUs in which they will say you will float too but you’ll go to med surg. They have a in house float pool called Tiger Flex and will float those RNs into the unit and float the traveler RNs to med surg. They give you the run around and blame the staffing office for doing this. However, I called staffing after being floated 3 shifts in a row and was told to take it up with a supervisor. The supervisors say it’s not fair and understand why it’s frustrating but don’t take any authority and tell staffing to keep the tiger flex nurses on med surg instead. They have a locked psych unit that they call integrated medicine which is not safe for staff. A traveler was floated there and told it was not an acute psych floor and was physically attacked by a patient. This has been ongoing for over 8months as previous travelers have complained. They do not care and abuse travelers here. Stay away unless you don’t mind essentially being a float pool nurse. They don’t have very many core staff either and many have left since the 2 months I’ve been here. Would give 0 stars if an option. Pay for monthly parking that is not covered and about 1/4 mile walk.

This hospital was definitely not transparent about how they utilize their travelers! My contract was for a newly opened Neuro-Surgical ICU. The interview boasted the excitement of a new and much larger unit and the need for specialized Neuro ICU travelers to staff this new unit while new staff nurses were being hired and trained for this growth. Sounds great, right? Wrong!! Their Neuro ICU is actually part step down and part ICU so if you don't float be prepared to have 4 step down patients. Mostly, you will just float. They utilize the travelers regardless of assigned unit to staff the floors. I was floated at least 75% of the time there to the floors. They float ICU travelers out of the unit to the floor, and then float core staff or internal travelers into the ICU.

Parking

Parking costs and if you work there during football season...well let's just say this town values the tailgaters more than the nurses that are there to save lives. You have to find different parking on game days even though you pay for parking or you will be towed.

Worst assignment ever. Always floating. Not transparent about floating policy. Staff can be nice but everyone is leaving the ICU.

Parking

Have to pay monthly!

Be prepared to be float pool! The ICUs are known amongst staff for hiring travelers then using them as float pool for the hospital. The staffing office will float internal travelers or staff from other ICUs in and float travelers out to all over - internal medicine (psych), medical specialties, observation…wherever they need you. The most I was in the ICU in a row was 7 shifts. When you are floated you don’t know anyone, some of the floors techs get VS some floors the techs don’t. It is hard to determine who you can get a waste with as you don’t know anyone and everyone is in whatever color scrubs. Don’t count on an uninterrupted lunch break or even a break at all. RUN!!!! Do NOT recommend!!!

Parking

Paid Parking. No garage. Not covered - you’re walking 0.25 miles in whatever weather it is that day. If it’s football season you get booted out of that area and told to park at another location on game days.
