I'm new to Northern Arizona & was having trouble finding recent info on Flagstaff Medical Center. There sure are a lot of negative reviews on this place, but I love this town so I really want to give it an honest try. Can anyone tell me what the job rate is for an experienced telemetry RN? Any advice/tips/comments about your experience at FMC would be much appreciated.

Thank you

I did my clinicals at FMC for nursing school. I can't tell you what the job prospects are but I don't know why it got bad reviews! I really liked the staff there and they dont seem like they have alot of equipment issues. Don't judge it by the reviews!

I've been at FMC for 4 years, starting as a new grad. I love working here - management seems to really look out for staff. We are a level 1 trauma center, have 5 med/surg tele floors, 1 ortho floor, SDU, ICU and CVICU. There is also a peds/picu/scn unit. The providers work well with the staff, and we have a great team of hospitalists. What is your experience level?

Thanks for your responses! I have been in med/surg/tele for close to a decade. Looking forward to finding a good fit at FMC. A good group of hospitalists seems to be a major perk. Is it really a teaching hospital - or does it just have a handful of residents?

Thanks again

Not sure how many residents we have - I see them mostly in surgery. Great team of hospitalists; I can honestly say I like them all. Nice having that coverage at night too. Here's a link to the recruitment video which has some nice pics of the area too (hope it's allowed on this site!)
