    Never worked there but have relatives in the area who say facility is great.
    Also worked with nurses who have gone there and loved it. Good luck-take the plunge.

    I like St.Marys..I work in the OR so my experience would be different from the floor..I know people that work on the floor and they like it..Plus the benefits are dont have to pay for health insurance if you are full time..Plus after your 90 day eval you accumulate 1 sick day per month..The benefits are a plus for me..Like if you or a family member are seen in the ER you dont have to pay the St. Marys bill..You will have to pay like the doc. bill and radiology and so one but the insurace so far it great..

    Hi Tessa,
    Great news and good luck. I am sure you will enjoy working there and will learn a lot.

    Haven't worked there myself, but several co-workers have and speak of it highly.

    Seemed like a good facility from the perspective of a grand-daughter of a patient last year.

    I'm from WV. I just finished my ADN @ D&E. I took my final today and will graduate on Saturday, May 12. I was an LPN and went back for the RN. I will return to work @ the state Psych facility as soon as I get my temp license.
