Mayo

  1. I was offered a job at the Mayo and was wondering if it is a more stressful and demanding place than other hospitals? Any info on it would be great. Good or bad experiences. Thanks! Flibble

    I know you posted this a little while ago, but I thought I would give a little input. I did a nursing internship at Mayo, and was ultimately offered a job there. While I did not accept it, I can offer a few observations about my experience there.


    I worked on Eisenberg 10-2 (Solid Organ Transplant) for one summer in 2002, and from what I saw, they treat their nurses VERY well. I was impressed by the amount of support they show to their nurses and the extent to which they go to make sure their nurses are enjoying their jobs and have adequate time off. I did not choose Mayo because I am not from the area, and didn't wish to relocate. Otherwise, I would have definitely considered working there if I didn't mind living in Rochester. Good luck!

    I have family in the Rochester area and I've had the opportunity to visit Mayo. Every nurse I met seemed to be pretty happy and enthusiasic about working there (St. Mary's). They must treat their nurses very well. If I lived in Rochester, I would consider Mayo when I get my degree. I love the area, and Minnesota in general.

    I have an internship here at Mayo this summer, and I can echo what the others have said about the nurses being treated very well here. I work at St. Mary's. It really is an awesome place to work; I haven't heard any real complaints yet from any nurses. In fact, these seem to be some of the "happiest" nurses I've met so far in school and I do clinicals at a LOT of hospitals. If you feel you would be happy here, go for it.

    Again, this post is old but I'll answer anyway....... I spoke with a nurse who worked there and she was very happy with it as a work place. I was shocked when she said that there are "teams" for just about everything..... IV teams, PT teams, cath teams, etc. Nurses there don't have to do all that nurses at most other hospitals have to do. They don't even need to ambulate. That completely surprised me.

    I did take the job at the Mayo in the transplant unit and I really like it. It surprised me to when I found out they had a "team" for everything. Thanks again for the replies! flibble
