Tampa

  1. 0
    Hello,

    I'm looking at relocating after graduation and I was looking for information about Tampa and specifically TGH. I want to go into Critical Care (or possibly ER/Trauma) and then eventually I'd like to look at pursuing CRNA. Any info about the city and specifically the hospital would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks,
    bryan

    I am still a student (graduating this May) but I have done numerous clinicals at TGH and will be doing my leadership there as well. It is a teaching hospital so there are constantly students there so be expected to do some teaching. Being the county hospital there are alot of spanish speaking patients so if you are bilingual that would be a plus. I have found the staff there to be very receptive to us students and I plan on working either there or at St. Joseph's after graduation. Starting pay for gn's is $19.50. They are part of the nursing student loan forgiveness network of hospitals and they offer tuition reimbursement if you want to continue schooling.
    Hope this helps!

    What other Tampa Bay area hospitals belong to this "network"?

    There are no other Tampa hospitals in the program, there are 5 or 6 throughout the state. I was/am hoping to get a job with TGH but I did already get an offer from St. Joseph's. They don't have the repayment program but they are an excellent facility.

    TGH is an excellenent hospital. It's one of my dreams to train there. If you get a job there, you'll see the best in medicine. As for info about the city, if you're planning to go to Ybor city or the tropicana Field area at night, don't go alone. Otherwise, it's a very nice, enjoyable city.

    TGH is a great place to work. The benefits are excellent. I used to work in the pedi and adult ER there. I recently transfered to the surgical prep unit. Let me know if I can help you.

    Good luck.

    If you want to get into Trauma, TGH is the place to be, a great place to get experience. I did my EMT clinicals there many years ago. Great hospital to learn at.
