My clinical instructor nearly flips her lid when the topic of how much money Renown has spent on this name change. It is millions of dollars that could have been put to better use: technology, benefits, staffing, etc. I couldn't agree more.
I've yet to work at Renown, but I may be there next semester for peds & OB. So far, I've only been at Saint's...and I must say I really like it there. A LOT...I can see myself working there after graduation. Of course, my experience in future semesters may change my mind once I get a chance to work at Renown.
That comment from Mr. Miller, if true, is absolutely rediculous. I would love to see him save money if nurses are taken out of the picture and patient care goes down the crapper and mortality rates start to skyrocket.
I looked at the NNA site and as a student, I can join with an affordable due. How often are meetings, and are they ever in Northern NV? I found info on their annual conferences and seminars around the state.
In other news, did you hear Washoe County is upset they lost their "county hospital" and is considering changing their name to Renown County?
