Any HCMC nurses? Working conditions?

  1. 0
    HCMC nurses are unionized and their contract is being negotiated.
    Is the environment stressful right now?
    How is to work there?
    :typing I am considering applying in the NICU.

    Do nurses :flamesonb "eat their young?"
    Are nurses helpful?

    Anything would be helpful.

    blackberry,

    I used to work at HCMC (6 years ago). I'll talk to some of my friends that still work at HCMC and see if they can give you a current opinion on things.

    Hi I work at HCMC. I am not sure what the environment is like on NICU but I work on MICU and I have been there for about 6 mo. I love it! However, it can be very stressful During those times the nurses RT's and MD's really work well as a team.
    Not too much of eating the young going on re: the nurses. They have been very approachable and willing to teach new things.

    We are still waiting for the negotiations to be finalized as far as the union goes. I have not heard many negative comments re: the matter.
    I hope this was helpful.

    Good luck with you job search,

    Good to hear that you are going to continue with the application process. I think the NICU still has positions available
    Good Luck,

    Anyone still employed by HCMC? How is it? How hard is it for a new grad(ADN) to get a job in an ICU?
