  • I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. Dallas is a great city with friendly people and lots of fun to be had, the traffic is California bad though- I was glad to work nights because the day time commute would of been 1 1/2 but at night it was only 30 minutes for me in from Rowlett. Gorgeous hospital with really neat stuff for kids and art- the walk in from employee parking garage 0.6 miles though- be ready to burn calories!!! The hospital orientation is very excessive- 2 weeks. The first week is all policies and epic training and modules- they could just throw out this whole week and save themselves some major money but hey we got paid and got to socialize all of us travelers and new hires together. The second week was orienting with a preceptor taking patients. I was ICU float pool (there was actually 9 of us travelers all started same day for this position) so we all oriented 1 shift in each of their ICU's PICU/TICU/CVICU and that was great. I felt this was an adequate and very helpful orientation. This hospital has a very friendly culture and the moment you get a badge you are pretty much one of them. They staff a ton of travelers (although apparently the new CFO is trying to really cut costs and get rid of us travers if he can) and are very used to us and will quickly assess your skill level and let you pretty much do what staff does- although they don't let travelers admit traumas... but I bet if you really knew your stuff and jumped in to help you could talk them into letting you take some. They let you self schedule just like staff and will move you around a little to even out staffing, you work weekends like the staff, they honor requests off, I let them schedule me where ever cuz I wanted to be helpful and do what they needed and it was very appreciated. Their charge is out of staffing and they have a resource most nights, a secretary and a tech- that was really nice as this is a very busy hospital. I would recommend this assignment to all. You will learn, you will be treated well, you will work hard but it is fair. So the only bad thing is- new CFO canceled all of our contracts early at week 9 except for the 2 lowest paid ones to cut costs. The staff was very sad to see us go especially since they require them to work mandantory OT. I will take an assignment here again though!!! 04/22/2017
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was my own- Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Rowlett. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Be aware of traffic in Dallas especially if you are dayshift- keep that in mind when looking for housing.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. EPIC hospital. Kronos scheduling. This unit has all the bells and whistles. Very tech based hospital. Attendings and NNP. Residents with specialties 04/14/2015
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was on my own. Housing was located in city of dallas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Staff was great to work with. Good orientation. Only drawback was when census went up staff received bonus of $200- $1000 per shift extra. this is with Ratios of 1:1- 1:3(more often 1:2) being maintained.
