- by tatarn2b2007 Feb 11, '07Hi. I was wondering if anyone can give me some info on the Cleveland Clinic. Do you enjoy working there? Do they have a sign on bonus. What are the patient ratios like? Thanks so much.
- Feb 20, '07 by inspir8tionI second that question!
- Mar 3, '07 by greatanJust wondering why no one hasn't responded to this question? As a LPN graduating in September I would like to know to.

Cleveland Clinic nurses and lpns ...any comment will help
- Mar 9, '07 by WingsEarned21O.K here goes guys/gals.I work for a hoapital that is part of the CC.I work the telemetry floor as an LPN.I have been there 5 years and it is not an easy floor to work.I am now leaving to be closer to home.I work the weekend program they have ,nice if you have family and kids invovled in extra curriculars.They also give us a night shift bonus every 3 months and pay a little more for you working the weekend program.You get 5 weekends off a year and you can split them up if you like.Take a sat here and a sun there if you need.That is ALL you get though so you have to be picky n choosy as to what family functions ,concerts,trips etc you care to attend.You can pick from fri/sat or sat/sun .I loved the crew I was working with but was not fond of the clientele we would get .I worked tHE night shift 12's.Along with 3-11 we had a lot of admissions also and it never fails first thing as your ready or waiting to leave something happens.The skills I htought I had lost working long term came back quickly and the skills I gained were awesome.They also offer free ceu's in various ways.Another perk to the weekend thing is if you want to go bcak to school you can easily and still work.They consider you full time for benefits but part time if you want their tuition reimbursement.Also if the holiday does not fall on the weekend you don't work it,if it does then you work it.So for the last 2 years I had to work x mas and new years but if I were staying for the next 5 I would not work it.I just can't make that drive any longer,I have almost wrecked my car more than once trying to get home in the mornings from being so sleepy.Hope this helps .Any more questions feel free to ask

What is the best housing/condo to stay in esp. for a foreign single mom with 2 kids?
- Mar 9, '07 by WingsEarned21No problem I also hear they have some kind of parent shift at the main campus.Allows you to work around your kids or something.Might wanna check on that .
- Mar 13, '07 by coderedI work at the CC at the main campus downtown. BE careful. Make sure you shadow your position if offered to you. Once your in the CC you cant leave the facility and go to another CC facility for a year. CC owns a ton of surrounding hospitals, Lakewood, Fairview, Marymount, Hillcrest and the list goes on. So- that being said, if you take the job your stuck for a year. Parking is an absolute nightmare and you pay for parking. It is not all it is cracked up to be working there. Just be careful and make sure you ask around for other nurses opinions and please try and shadow your position. Good luck
- Mar 13, '07 by neneRNAnd at the main Cleveland Clinic, aren't all RNs required to wear all white? And some units will do rotating shifts- my sister works days, nights, weekends...
- Mar 14, '07 by coderedYes, ALL nurses wear all white. Nothing colored allowed. And yes shifts are rotating 12 hours,7 to 7, and your on nights 2 weeks then days 2 weeks. Hard to adjust. The main campus is also so large it eats you up.
