Any nurses who have worked or are currently working at Piedmont Atlanta, what is this hospital like? Pros/Cons? I'm considering applying to their surgical floor in the near future and just need ANY info anyone has! Thanks in advance

it used to be great but the hospital recently went to staffing based on numbers and not acuity, which is terrible because the hospital see very sick patients. Many nurses that worked there for years, have left Piedmont.
So I applied to Piedmont and I have an interview tomorrow. I'm very nervous about the test; apparently it's a med-surg and drug calc exam. Anyone take this exam? How many questions? What's it like? I wasn't able to study for it as I had to work 5 days in a row this weekend/week due to training at my current job. Any input would be greatly appreciated! TIA
The drug calc is easy if you can follow a given formula for insulin sliding scale dosages. A guy that was recently hired on my floor said the tests weren't bad and they give you a retry on the math one if you don't pass the first time, but you have to wait a certain amount of time before retaking.
