Hello, 

I am moving from Seattle to California and have interview scheduled for UC Davis Medical Center. 

How is your working experience at UC Davis Medical center? 

Is the hospital well staffed? Do you feel valued working as RN there? 

I'd appreciate any comments about any of your working experience as RN at UC Davis Medical Center. 

Thank you in advance!

This is random, but Cedars-Sinai in LA is hiring right now, in need of experienced nurses (I moved from Seattle to LA last year to work there). They're offering a sign on bonus this week of $7500.00 with an employee referral.  They offer 3 12's with option of an extra shift as 1.0, the entire extra shift is 1.5xpay, self scheduling, 2 weekends/month requirement. If you are interested, please let me know! Sorry I don't know anything about UC Davis!

Obviously it greatly depends on the unit.  I worked in the emergency room. It was incredibly challenging.  You take care of very sick patients and it isnt uncommon to be out of ratio when one of your patients turns into an ICU patient.  The old timer nurses tend to get placed in triage,  or team lead and tend to not be a great resource.  They've been there forever.  

I left as soon as I had enough experience to get a new ER job.  It just felt incredibly unsafe for my nursing license.

Unfortunately I couldnt speak for other floors, but the ICU nurses seemed just as rushed when I'd come drop off my patient. Maybe other floors are better?  I just would never work in the ER again.
