Hello.  I am a CTICU RN with 3 yrs UC experience.  I'll be moving back home to Las Vegas from CA in June.  Just trying to see, which hospital will be a good choice for me to apply to.  Does anyone know how summerlin or sunrise treats their nurses?  Assignments?  And if anyone knows the starting pay for RN3 in Las Vegas.  Thank you!!!

Both Summerlin and Sunrise have dedicated CVICU units. Both places treat their nurses well, from a general standpoint. Summerlin is mostly CABG's and valves. Sunrise does ECMO, and higher acuity hearts. Supposedly Sunrise is applying for heart transplantation and Level 1 trauma center status this year or next. 

3 years RN pay at Summerlin would be about $36/hr. Sunrise about $40/hr. St Rose hospitals $45/hr. But if you apply to the Roses that's a different story. Good luck with your move and welcome back to Las Vegas soon.

I'd also add that Mountain View has a very good CVICU unit and high acuity.

Thank you so much ICUman!  That information is incredibly helpful.  Sounds like Sunrise might be a good fit for me.  🙂

I work at summerlin (not in cvicu) but have noticed there's a great culture. I've met and talked with the CEO personally twice now and everyone I work with has been very welcoming and approachable. It's also in a great area of town. Only thing lacking is pay compared to HCA hospitals. Either way, it's all very competitive. Good luck!
