Working for MUSC in Charleston South Carolina?

  1. Has anybody working in Charleston or at their children's hospital (MUSC), how much do they pay? How is the area? Is it a good hospital?

    I interviewed there and was my second choice.... just couldn't see workin for $9 less than I was offered in Seattle. People go to Charleston for the history and culture not the pay rate.

    Also heard that they are now having travlers take the PBDS... so guess that I will never go there, because I'm boycotting that stupid test.

    I worked in the PICU and Ped CVICU, and liked them both. It's near the Downtown area and close to the College of Charleston. There are some shady areas, but I think most university hospitals live in the shady areas. Just be sure to have your PPD done within 3 months of hire, or they won't let you go further into orientaion.

    The pay is in the mid-20's but someone recently posted 31/hr pay. They are currently not using PBDS but have purchased the material for it. I'd get in now before they implement it, or ask if they have already started.

    Just left MUSC in December. I was on assignment there for 9 months. I worked on a med/surg floor (7w). the pay was only 22/hr. The nurse: patient ratio was good 1:5 nights and 1:4 on days with free float charge days and nights. Charleston was great! Lots to do!!

    If you want a good pay rate for the hospitals in Charleston,
    SC I would suggest going with a more local agency. I contacted several agencies and finally found one that paid well and found out they were actually located in Charleston. Guess they had a good rapor the hospitals. Millenia Medical Staffing is a good one that I know of in that area.
