Hi everyone,

I've been recently offered a position with HonorHealth (Scottsdale campus) for FT Nights in the ICU. It's a 2-year contract with sign-on bonus and relocation assistance. I've only been to Phoenix once, so I'd like to know more about this system. I come from a unionized establishment. I would like to know how satisfied you are from working with HH. Any feedback is welcome, whether it be positive/negative.

Additionally, as I am a young gay male nurse, I would like to know if this could pose a problem at this location. By that, I mean are people in the area generally okay/tolerant of LGBT people.

Thank you very much, and feel free to PM if you don't want to speak publicly.

I don't work for HH but did a lot of my clinicals at the Shea campus and have a friend who works at the Shea campus. She absolute loves it there. Pay is higher than many other hospitals in the area. Benefits are pretty competitive. And in general, most nurses I have met at various facilities seem to be pretty tolerant and open minded to all walks of life. Like anywhere else, I imagine you'll find some jerks, but for the most part, I don't see you having much trouble with your sexual orientation at work.

While Arizona tends to be more conservative (see recent presidential election), there is a strong and active gay community here. I have no advice about HH aside from what Mrs. Boots has given. Good luck!

Check out the Melrose District or Midtown in Phoenix for living in or around, if you want to live close to the main LGBT community in the valley! Congrats on the job!

So, while I am not a nurse at Honor Health I do work there. Our benefits are pretty good, tuition assistance is offered and pay-wise, I believe new grad nurses start at about 26 and from there I don't know (you can guage off of that). I enjoy working there, I mean its like any other job but generally speaking it's a good company. The people are great to work with and I don't think you will have any problems with being gay. People really are nice, I don't know specifics about LGBT community but I know of a few (not at the scottsdale location specifically) who have been there a while. I would say if you love the job offer, I don't think you will hate the rest.

New grad RNs make 28.50 at the Scottsdale campuses.
