    Has anyone worked at Lakeside Hospital in Bartlett? It is a psychiatric hospital. I am applying there (interested in going into psych). I'm not interested in the pay, just how well they treat the staff and patients.

    Yep, St. Jude is definitely the best! My aunt's been there for YEARS.

    Yes, that is the downside. You defintely have to have thick skin because the emotional toll can be very tough.

    I worked at St. Francis for about 8 months. I think I started out at $20.80 and then when I left I was up to $21-something/hour plus my night diff & my weekend diff. Before I left I do believe they had started putting holiday pay in your PTO account vs paying you extra for it. I could be wrong, but I think that is where they were headed. When I worked weekend nights, I was making over $30/hour. My patient number was always 7-9 on nights. However, we were short on my floor as I would only have 6-7 on other floors when I floated there. I'd recommend St. Francis to anyone, I just wanted to get closer to home, so I moved to a hospital in my area.

    I also believe the St. Francis on Park is the one that may lose their OB department. That was the rumor back when I worked there last year.

    does anyone know if there are pay differentials for the different units at various hospitals here in memphis? are there differentials for working in the ER, ICU, OR, etc? someone told me that ER nurses make more than floor nurses. i'm not sure if that is the case or not.

    for new grads, no. you have more bargaining with the more experience you have

    No. All of the hospitals have a weekend program. Pay varies.
