I'm relocating to the Tampa area from PA in January. I'm a young nurse, looking to work on Med/Sug, and Ortho units. I have interviewed and visited with some hospitals in the area, including St. Pete General, Northside Hospital,...
Baycare has lots of new grad options, and the orientation experience for a new grad in pediatrics is really great. Not so much of the nurses eating their young thing there, in my experience. Just saying in case it helps anybody.
What's wrong with HCA? I've been volunteering at an HCA facility for over a year, and now just got hired as a tech ( I graduate in Sept.). My family has spent more time than we'd like here, but each time one of us has a stay everyone is great. It's close to home, and I hear pay (my pay now is already pretty good) is good so staying as an RN sounds like a pretty good plan.... so what's the problem with HCA? Why are people being warned away from it?
I agree with you!!! How can you generalize a company with hundreds of facilities and they are all horrible!! Its all about the experience you receive which can be negative even in the best hospitals in America!
