- I worked in the CVOR department(s) in the hospital. First the good; Greenville, NC has a very low cost of living and the hospital and staff are traveler friendly. The bad; 1) looooooow pay, 2) the CVOR department uses very time consuming and inefficient documentation (paper charting) of operative implants, and 3) when you think of CVOR, you think of CARDIOVASCULAR, right? In fact Vidant does perform the usual CABGs and valve surgeries that most hospitals do, but you, as an experienced CVOR nurse, won't be assigned to any (permanent staff do all the hearts). You'll instead be doing lots and lots and lots endoscopy procedures-yup! EGDs, bronchoscopies, esophageal dilations... with the occasional VATS or leg revascularization. Then, there's the flexing-if you really decide to come here, build that into your contract, otherwise you will be flexed a lot and regret not having done so like I did:( Lastly Greenville is totally devoid of any attractions or recreation-very, very boring town. Best advice-go elsewhere! 08/21/2017 The name of the housing complex was not provided. Housing was located in city of Greenville . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. N/A
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. I found the assignment to be a pleasure. Management flexible with schedule and the patient ratios are great. Fellow nurses were more for the most part friendly and supportive. However, getting a "care partner" or what we all know as an NA to do anything is like an act of congress. For the most part they don't do anything but hide. 11/08/2016 Housing was approximately N/A mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of N/A. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
- I worked in the Cardiac Intermediate / Tele department(s) in the hospital. Vidant is a HUGE hospital compared to the town it is in. The facility itself is great. The majority of the employees are super friendly and helpful, and all the charge nurses have been great. As someone mentioned, the hospital is so large that employees are bused in from the employee lot because its so far away. But if you work night shift there is closer parking (at least for the heart center anyway). My boyfriend and I worked on their cardiac intermediate/tele unit and we were able to work our shifts together and schedule ourselves exactly how we wanted to. The town itself is blah. 1/4 of it is a college town (East Carolina University), but that's really all the town has going for them. If you are up for traveling out of the town to find adventure then it is worth it though. We went to DC (4 hrs), Shenandoah Natl Park (4 hrs), the ocean and the outerbanks are 1 hr away, Raleigh is an hour away. 08/12/2016 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Waterford. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Our housing worked out perfectly. It was a 2 bdr/2ba furnished apartment. Dog friendly. Gated entrances. 2 pools and 2 small gyms. Before it got so hot here we walked to work.
- I worked in the L department(s) in the hospital. Overall great unit and staff, unit is really run down, though, equipment always broken or not enough equipment, rooms are TINY and they lack a formal visitor policy 05/23/2016 Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. n/a
- I worked in the Cardiac department(s) in the hospital. Too big of a hospital for a tiny town. Employee parking is so far away that you have to take a bus to get to the hospital. Morale on the unit was terrible-lots of passive aggressive attitudes towards each other. The permanent staff is so overworked, no wonder the bad attitudes! Little to no accountability for staff but a lot if you are a traveler. If the hospital can get their act together it would be a great place to work. 01/07/2016 Housing was approximately <1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Treybrook. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. First bad experience with housing. The apartment was a mess and bugs everywhere when I moved in. Office staff not helpful at all regarding these issues. Rude management. I would suggest any other apartment complex in town.
