  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. I loved working here! Everyone was SO kind and welcoming and willing to help. They treated me like their own. Only complaint is with the scheduling, but apparently they are working on it. I would definitely take a permanent position here. 10/08/2016
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Air BNB. Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I lived at greenlake and loved it.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. I still can't believe how crazy busy Seattle is. That being said, the area the hospital is in was easily accessible from where I lived (about 1 mile away). The hospital staff was great, and when I started they were desperate for help. Now things are a bit better with their own staffing, so the travelers are being dialed back a lot and I have spent a lot of shifts on the Level 2 NICU, aka healthy babies learning how to eat. Very boring for me who prefers a fast pace. Food in Seattle is pretty good, not really missing anything as far as I'm concerned in that area. Definitely look for a bike or use Uber if going downtown... traffic is impressive, and I grew up driving in NY City. 02/13/2016

This apartment building only will do 1 year leases. I lucked out with being able to sublet someone else's lease, but otherwise would not have worked for traveler.
  • I worked in the Swedish cancer institute infusion room department(s) in the hospital. I had an amazing experience on this unit. Management is excellent, the other nurses treated me like family on day 1. Very well staffed unit, even when short staffed, it was so large it didn't make a huge dent in my opinion. The layout of the unit is small and patient chair can be cramped but they are in the process/construction of a bigger unit. I would eagerly recommend this assignment. 12/22/2015

  • I worked in the Orthopedic department(s) in the hospital. The orthopedic institute is by far one of the best travel assignments you can have. The building is new and up to date with private rooms and all the equipment is either in the room or close by. They are very responsive to nursing needs and the staff is very friendly. Patient ratios are excellent, normally starting with 3-4 per nurse. 5 is the max they will give you and its always apologetically. 10/02/2015

  • I worked in the oncology department(s) in the hospital. Very friendly staff, but the hospital is going through some changes right now and a lot of regular staff are very upset with management.
