    i didn't work at swmc as a nurse, but i was there working as a contractor on an IT project, because of the my work, i got to go around a bunch of departments and see many ppl working there.
    from my experience there, the environment is quite nice, ppl seemed pretty cool, and the management ppl i had to talk too seemed like nice ppl too.
    but well, i would love to hear more inside stories too, a hospital where everyone is happy, it sounds like too good to be true, eh?

    I used to and it was a wonderful place to work.
    Good luck!

    I worked there as a nurse tech a few years ago (First Hill campus). It was okay, though in retrospect they gave the NTs WAY too much autonomy considering that I had just finished my first year.

    Also, Swedish just had an absolutely hideous contract renegotiation fiasco. Management did NOT come across as supportive of staff.

    I used to work recently @ the First Hill campus as both a NT and RN. I loved the autonomy as a tech; I guess it's how you approach it. The contract negotiation is pretty much settled now, from what I hear. But some of my former coworkers still tell me of a lack of managerial support.
