Hi all of my fellow RNs!
This question is very specific to ICU RNs located in San Diego so not sure how much response I'll get but any information would be great!
I'm not about 2 years into my career as an ICU RN here in NH and I've decided that I'm going to make the move to San Diego to be with one of my best friends (and get away from the winter for a while). I've noticed that there are a few large hospital systems down there including Scripps Mercy, Sharp, UCSD Med Center, and Kaiser. I'm wondering what kind of experiences you've had as an ICU nurse in these hospitals? Are any notorious for taking poor care of their nurses? Do any stand out above the rest?
I'll be coming from a 16 bed general ICU in a Level 2 Trauma center where our staff is extremely close knit and the teamwork is absolutely unbelievable. I guess I'm hoping that I'll find similar dynamics in ICU's over in SD but any personal experiences would be great to hear about!
Thanks in advance
