I relocated to Fayetteville to live with my dear Ft. Bragg-based boyfriend
and got a job on a surgical unit in Cape Fear Valley Hospital, will start later on this summer. I've never worked in this hospital before and I'm just plain curious to hear opinions about it--anything you could share is appreciated
. I have read a couple of posts here and someone said the management was poor...I've also heard divided opinions from people--anything from poor to wonderful. I haven't read any very recent opinions, so I don't really know much. I think they've revised their management lately and try to achieve the Magnet status (or could I be wrong?? I think someone told me this!)
Some people say I'm downgrading a lot as I leave my job in a trauma level-1 University Hospital and "Cape Fear is not that good" etc etc. but to me it's more important to be able to live with my boyfriend and it's still just a job. I'm happy I don't have a long commute and happy I will have a job in general! I'm just very curious how do people--especially nurses who actually work there--find this hospital. How do you find their benefits? What specialty do you work at? I will be working on ortho/gen. surg.
Thanks! Any input appreciated!
