I worked at CRH for 10 yrs, and many of the nurses I worked with left Seymour to work at CRH, so I guess that tells you something! LOL
I feel the need to defend a few things the previous poster stated. The new NM on the PCU was left a mess by the previous NM. People were leaving, but once she adjusted to her new role and the staff adjusted to her, it is now a very pleasant floor to work on.
I also feel the need to defend the NM of the CVU. She doesn't hire new hires, if she can help it. I transferred to that unit after working 3 years in ICU and 5 years in the cath lab, and I was overwhelmed at times -- and I am a very seasoned nurse! She believes, as I do, it isn't a place for a new graduate. If she hired a new grad in the past, I am sure it was because she was desperate for staff -- it happens.
I have been a nurse for several years and have worked at Methodist, Wishard, and St Francis Hospitals. I keep coming back to CRH. I'm not sure why you feel they don't care about retention -- I felt they were bending over backwards to keep me there. I am currently part owner of my own infusion nurse agency and recently quit CRH to do this full-time. But if my business fails, or I decide to go back to the bedside -- I'll go back to CRH.
I should mention, though -- CRH has the worst human resources dept -- they are so slow!! But once you get through the hiring process and onto your unit, the people at CRH are a great group.
