Job as a PCA at memorial hospital? How is it?

  1. Hello all

    I just recently accepted a position as a patient care associate in the telemetry department at memorial hospital in gulfport. My first day is nov 10th and im super excited and super nervous at the same time since I have NO medical/hospital experience, but I am an aspiring nursing student and I really want to get my hands dirty and see wat its all about. They seemed very professional and nice and i really like the month orientation they have vs the 2 week orientation at ocean springs hospital (which i turned down for memorial bc they offered me better pay and hours).. anyways, i was wondering if anyone could give me any insight on memorial and how you like it and what i could expect maybe? is it a good hospital to work for? they seemed very professional.. more so than other places i have been too..

    thanks yall
