I am about to graduate from a great BSN program here in Birmingham. I have done clinicals in many of the hospitals around town but I don't feel like I've had enough experience at any of them to know which is the best place to work. I know everywhere will have pros and cons, but if any of you work in Birmingham and could give me insight into specific hospitals/units that would be GREAT! I am pretty open as far as areas I'm interested in.
I would love some insight as far as friendliness of staff, turnover rate, opportunities to advance, salaries, use of new technology, how respected RNs are, overall environment of the hospital (food/parking/cleanliness).
Also if you have had any negative experiences with particular units/hospitals, feel free to share.
Thank you SO much in advance!
