Springfield hospital center and Sheppard Pratt
- 0Mar 7, '11 by hunny_cessyHi. I have been an RN for 9 years in med-surg and cardiac areas and I wanted to shift to psychiatric nursing to extend my knowledge into this area. I currently live in Maryland and applied to Sheppard Pratt Ellicott city and Springfield Hospital center. Anybody who has experience working in these settings? How is it? How is the level of stress, work load, patient:nurse ratio, and nursing camaraderie. Will appreciate any input. Thanks!

She works PRN though (gets as many hrs as she wants) and she said that she would never work full time there through because they really screw full time workers scheduling wise.
Sometimes they'll hire PRN workers without exp if you want to try it.
