    :yeahthat: Hi! I loved Seattle's Harborview Medical Center. Er can be crazy but FFFUUUNNN. It's a level 1 trauma center...and being a county faculity, it is rarely empty. The pt demographic tend to be a little wild (if you enjoy the tv show "Cops" you will be amused). Staff is excellent and friendly to travelers. I've worked at Johns Hopkins and Mayo, among others, and found nursing in Seattle to be the most diverse and rewarding. A tamer institution, yet very good, is Harborview's sister facility, University of Washington Medical Center. UWMC is more of an upscale facility specializing in transplants and Oncology. I've heard ok reviews on Swedish Hospital.

    Hope this helps

    I loved Swedish Medical in downtown Seattle. Also worked Harrison in Silverdale/Bremerton. A bit weird but the people were great to work with.
