Exeter vs Portsmouth

  1. I have interview next week at both Exeter and Portsmouth hospitals. Can anyone give me any insight into what either/both are like to work for?

    I worked at Exeter Hospital back in 2005. What floor are you interviewing at?

    I'm not interviewing for a floor nursing job - not going back there again! What did you think about working at Exeter in general?

    Lucky you, that's my goal to get away from floor nursing. Yes, I liked working at Exeter Hospital. The benefits were fantastic. The education department was super. Overall, I felt like the hospital really strived to keep their nurses. Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer. Best of luck with your interview.

    That's great to hear - thanks for the feedback. What have you heard about Portsmouth? The department head I spoke to sounded a little "out there."

    Sorry but I have not heard anything about Portsmouth good or bad. Good luck making your decision.
