Lubbock UMC vs THR Presby

joswatso joswatso (New) New

Hey guys,

I am considering making a move to the Dallas area from Lubbock. I love my job at UMC but I hate Lubbock. I love Dallas, but I want to be happy working there. I am primarily focused on THR Presby as a potential work place. Any feedback would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hey there! Which THR Presby are you considering? You have Denton, Dallas, Plano, Allen, Ft. Worth just to name a few. The system is large. We also have a few part physician owned facilities that does their own hiring. What kind of nurse are you?

I'm A medical icu nurse. I was interested in the dallas location.

Presby Dallas is now a level 2 trauma center and fairly busy. I work for the central staffing office as part time. Essential I'm float pool for the entire system but only float to ERs. I work when I want just as long as I get my 24 hrs hours in. In my experience Baylor pays low compared to other hospitals and I worked at parkland for 3 yrs as staff and 2 prn. I love and miss parkland but for a seasoned nurse, I'm not sure you want the headache. The HCAs use a charting system called meditech which drove me insane. I've been a nurse for 8 years, did some traveling and local seasonal contracts and the in the Dallas area THR was the best place to work. If you are seasoned I would look into the central staffing office. That's if you like flexibility. They offer a higher rate, you have to cross train at least 3 facilities but you can pick up shifts wherever you want and receive the same benefits as if you worked at one facility.
