    I worked for years at Tampa General as a floor nurse and loved it. Welcome to the big time kinda place...best hospital culture around the area.

    I have been doing HH case manage and am interviewing with UHC this week for a disease management position. They have a huge operation here in Tampa, as does Wellcare and Humana.

    Thanks Speedracer. Good luck o your interview. I interviewed with UHC and Wellcare 2 yrs ago when I first moved to Florida. I liked my interview at UHC better. I would have gotten both jobs EXCEPT I cannot type without looking at keyboard. Since it is telephonic reviews they really want you to have good keyboard skills I downloaded some programs and am practicing everyday. My goal is to work for UHC someday soon I hope. In the meantime I am interviewing for homecare jobs and one looks pretty good. I WILL never go back to hospital clinical work. Totally burned out. After 22 yrs ICU up North, then here on PCU with 6 pts, horrible. My best day on PCU was worse than my worse day in ICU!! Keep me posted about your decision regarding UHC.
    Thanks and again, Good Luck!!:wink2:
