Would like info on Pitt County Memorial Hospital

  1. Hi there. I am graduating this spring and recently received a job offer for a Labor and Delivery position at Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville, NC. So far, everything about the hospital I have looked into and heard is very positive. They seem to have a strong focus on education, which I think is great for a new grad. Also, they are a Magnet facility, which also impresses me. Can anyone give me some more information about their experiences at PCMH? Has anyone worked in L&D there? What is Greenville like? I understand that there are quite a few Canadian nurses at PCMH. I would like to know how your experience has been, and whether you would recommend this hospital to new grads, such as myself. I will be going down for a visit before I make my decision, however I'm sure there are lots of other nurses out there who could give me some advice. Thank you!

    I am a new grad (May) who works at Pitt. For the most part, I've been pleased with my employment. I didn't expect it to be perfect, and it hasn't been, but it has been good.
    I had an awesome preceptor, my unit educator was awesome in making sure I was learning what I needed to, and from what I have seen with other preceptor/preceptee relationships, my educator has been awesome in making sure you are paired with who you need to be with.
    Getting a spot in L&D as a new grad is hard- there was one person from my graduating class who snagged a job down there. From what I've heard, she's been really pleased to be down there.
    Yes, we do have a lot of Canadian nurses down here (are you Canadian?). I work with a LOT of them, and they're awesome. They turned us on to pickle potato chips and ketchup potato chips. :chuckle
    Good luck, pm me if you need to know more. -A

    Hi: I am a Canadian soon to be RN graduate in april/06. I want to work in North Carolina but do not know which hospital to work for. Can someone help me out? I think eastern NC would be good for me.
    Thanks
