I was just offered a 13 week travel position at UMC in Vegas. Does anyone know anything about the hospital. Has anyone traveled there that can share some light on my assignment?
Kind of unfair to label all Vegas hospitals " terrible" if you have never worked in one. What do you consider a horrible nurse to patient ratio? To me, ratios are not what matters...it's the acuity. You can have 4 half-dead unstable patients or 10 easy patients. Trust me I will take the 10. And it also depends on your previous experience and what your expectations are. A nurse with experience in a NYC emergency room may not think a Vegas emergency room is so terrible. Yet someone who comes from a rural 10 bed ER may think otherwise. It's all relative.
