New to the boards and need some advice.I have an opportunity to work at the Johnson City Medical Center, but didn't know what it was like. I'm not happy with the pay so I'm not sure if I want to give it a try or not. I would be working on the 2200 floor where I think I could learn a lot, but don't know if I want to try it or not yet. Does anyone on here have any experience with this hospital or floor? I would like to work at the VA if anyone knows anything about it. Any help would be great.

I learned alot at JCMC. I am not sure if I worked on 2200 (I worked registry so I was placed on a different floor everyday) but I worked know I worked on 2100 for 7 straight days, 12 hour shifts (thats how I remember). This was last summer and I loved 2100. Is that still Adult Special Care? I know that I usually didnt have more than 8 patients as an extern/nurse tech, I believe thats all that unit holds, maybe a few more. but most of the time I had about 4 patients.

I also did a semester at the VA, It was very different...

PM me with any specifics

I worked at the VA as a tech while I was in nursing school, and I loved it! I worked in the ICU/PCU area. The pay was good as a tech, and I know its really good as an RN too. Benefits are pretty good too. Working for the federal goevernment has its perks; that's for sure. Working on the floors like CG or C1 can be pretty busy, but you learn alot and get lot of experience.

I miss working with my little ol'men.

If you would like more details about working at the VA just PM me. I'm on deployment right now so it might take me longer to respond.

Good luck with whatever job you take.
