RN with 4 years of experience, 2.5 in Tele/ICU stepdown/med surg, one in ED. I am applying back east to move, and have promising options in the ED at Mass General and Johns hopkins (bayview) so far.

I worked in new york, not in the ED, and the staffing issues were horrendous. I have also never worked at non unionized hospitals. I was wondering if anyone here at worked in the ED in any of these hospitals, and if you could give me in some insight. I am coming from an ED in the Seattle area. Or, if you would have any other suggestions at places to apply to.

I know that Mass General is part of Partners Health, with a large sister medical center (Brigham and Women's Hospital) a few miles away. BWH is union, but MGH is not. They fight tooth and nail to keep the union from coming in.

...take that piece of info and do with it as you will.

Oh, the cost of living is probably cheaper near Johns Hopkins than in the Greater Boston area, if that's a factor in your decision making.

yeah cost of living is a factor too. I'm at a point where I've done the "living in a box" thing in new york and don't really want to go back to that haha. I'm also applying in the mid west where the cost of living is way less.

I'm kind of concerned about working at a non unionized hospital especially in a busy ER. I was curious what the environment is like at either one, especially coming from such an atrocious staffing situation In Brooklyn (ER nurses at my old hospital had like up to 10 patients).
