Where's a good place to work in the med center?

  1. 0 Hello!

    I will be separating from the Navy Nurse Corps in 6 months (honorable discharge), and I am moving back to Houston, Texas, to hopefully get a nursing job in the med center and go back to school. I have done med-surg, ICU (CCRN certified), and PACU in the past 5 years. I am also certified fluent in Spanish by the Defense Language Institute. I am looking for an ICU job; if I cannot find one then perhaps Emergency Department. I am not too picky about pay, as long as it is comparable to similar positions. I am looking for a good working environment, with lots to learn, and with coworkers who value teamwork, and provider staff that are helpful and willing to teach/mentor; supportive management is always a plus. Can anyone make any recommendations? St. Luke's, Methodist, Ben Taub, TCH?

    I am interested in the Navy Nurse Corps. Do you mind if I ask why you are leaving ? ( don't want to be nosy, just trying to get as much info )
    Can you tell me what you liked & disliked about it ?
    Good luck on your job search.

    Do you have your BSN? Almost every facility in the med center is wanting BSN's, even experienced ADN/ASN have problems getting hired there. Being fluent in Spanish is a huge plus in the med center.

    As for which facility, they all have pros and cons.

    And thanks for your service.

    Since the OP is in the Navy Nurse Corps, he/she definitely has a BSN degree. The US Dept. of Defense will not allow an RN into the Army Nurse Corps, Navy Nurse Corps or Air Force without having first earned a baccalaureate degree.

    I did not know that, nice to know.

    Then getting a job at any facility in the med center should not be a huge issue.
