I was hoping to get a job at Sunrise, but Valley is also an option. I would like to be an ER nurse. Anyone with experience have any thoughts or advice?

Sunrise is a level 2, with more trauma involvement in their ER likely. Valley is true inner city (although sunrise is comparable), and Valley gets very sick and challenging patients in their ER.

They’re both in a not so great area of town. Valley is really small, lots of homeless people and psych patients. Sunrise is huge and HCA so will Pay much better, I believe they’re union. Like the other poster said they get more traumas. If it was me I would choose Sunrise.

Sunrise and HCA do not pay "much better". A couple dollars an hour at best. 

Plus, the charting system that HCA uses is a pain in the a**

$18/hr at Summerlin as a CNA vs $23/hr at Sunrise, so yeah that's much better for me at least. Can't speak for the charting system though.

Oh okay. For registered nurses the difference is less than that.
