I don't usually post these kinds of threads, but...you never know unless you ask, right?
I want to work in the world of labor and delivery, mom-baby, or NICU. My long term goal is to either be a Nurse-Midwife, or Neonatal NP. I know- big talk. I've been an RN working on a tele unit for 10 months now, and I've floated darned near everywhere, from ICU stepdown/progressive care, to burn, to trauma to straight cardiac. In my facility we can't float to L&D or Postpartum or NICU because they're "closed units".
My question is: which hospitals have a good reputation for offering a positive environment for nurses? Which facilities are most encouraging toward their staff? I realize that the kind of environment I'm describing probably doesn't have a lot of turnover- but it's nice to get an idea, right?
