I am an Irish nurse planning to move to the US. I have been offered a job in Med/Surg St.Joseph's Hospital in Tucson Arizona. I would really appreciate any information about this hospital re staffing, location etc. If you feel more comfortable sending a PM please do.

I've only worked there on the tele unit-I never even saw the Med-surg.
The hospital is nice, and it's on the east side of Tucson, which is nice. I can think of a lot of places worse to work at!
When I was on tele, we had 6 pts, as a standard amount of pts. It's a catholic hospital, and they say a prayer overhead in the am, blessing the pts and staff, and they also play a little lullaby each time a baby is born.
From what I remember, they don't pay very well (for new grads), and they have a ladder where you start out at one level and move up as you take on more responsibilities.
Have you looked at their website?
