Glad you agree with me! I felt bad because I had heard such positive feedback about the hospital prior to going to work there! I have not heard the nurses say too many things good about the place since I've been there though! I wonder if they had their recruiters on here posting all the good stuff to reel us in!!!
I am not impressed at all with the hospital! I will be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad when 6 months are up, so I can say "Take this job and shove it!" :chuckle
I think it is amzing that they have such a nursing shortage, but they have such strict rules like "No jeans are to be worn on the campus ever, even if you are picking up your check!" That is so old and outdated! I know a lot of professional women that wear nice jeans and a blazer, or guys that wear jeans and a shirt and a tie and they look just fine! I have been to some of the most expensive restaurants in Aspen and everyone wore jeans! I just think there is a lot of bureaucratic B.S. to put up with at JCL! That is kjjust one exmple, but there are many, many more!
I also think the pay is well below a lot of other places in the city! The pt's have very high acuities! They have charge nurses that are supposed to be so helpful, but all they do is sit around and bite their nails, and take report and don't do anything else! I don't think the few real staff they have are supportive at all, but as I said, most of them are poor travelers trying to make it there themselves!
You are lucky you didn't take a sign on bonus from them! I wish I never would have either! You know someone told me once that these nursing recriters are just like car salesmen, and now I am really starting to believe it! Well, I am glad you are out of there and I am counting my days! Who knows, maybe I will get lucky and find another hospital to buy out my contract! I met one girl that did just that!
