Choosing a hospital to work

  1. 0 Hello Everyone! I'm so sorry I've been away for a while. Anyway, I am currently working in Saint francis as a Stepdown ICU nurse. I am seriously thinking about moving to ICU however there is no open position in SFH ICU right now. I am thinking about moving to HArtford Hospital to be able to get into their ICU. I'm having a dilemma whether or not it is worth the move. I have to start from scratch since it is a new system and new people to work and adjust with. On the other hand,, I have heard ( not really sure though if it's real) that Hartford Hospital pays way better that Sainf Francis. Need your input.

    Having worked at both, I can tell you that Hartford not only pays better, but in my opinion, is a better place to work. Better hospital too,IMHO (though I have heard reasonable minds disagree). Parking is also waaaaayy better, as is the food (priorities, you know ).
    In my experience, HH tended to staff a bit better, though this may have changed since my days there.
    I would say, if you can get a job at HH, do it. You won't be sorry.
