  • I worked in the Trauma Neuro ICU department(s) in the hospital. My girlfriend and I traveled to North Memorial Med center (NMMMC) from april/2016-august/2016. I had one shift of orientation, 4 hrs with a staff nurse and 8 hrs with another traveler. Luckily i already had epic training at other hospitals. Their EPIC system was one of the best I've ever experienced compared to California. Their ICU units were great, friendly staff, made many friends and that really made working in the ICU a joy some nights. Their MD's were very prompt in calling back and were open to suggestions and listened and spoke to you when available. This isn't a teaching hospital. ICU ratios were 2 patients to One RN every night. They have great equipment that works and is fairly new. I really liked the ICU. But their scheduling and floating was another story. The whole hospital ran on three 8 hr shifts. Us travelers besides a few charge nurses were the only 12 hours, which meant that your whole assignment could change on NOC shift at 2300. That would include floating to the medsurg/ tele floor and floating the whole 12 hour shift between non icu floors, with ratios going up to 6 patients after 2300 every night. We ended up floating 2 out of 3 days a week towards the end of our contract. The floating got to us and we couldn't do it anymore. I'm ok with floating to sister units and floating with the consideration that their staff floats with us, but ICU travelers ( there was a lot of us, basically staffing Half of all ICU's) Would basically be the whole hospitals float staff. We ended floating to every unit besides OB and women's, including a unit that had no native staff travelers or otherwise, basically a complete overflow unit with no staff that knew were anything was including the charge nurse. This Hospital has very high pros and very low cons. Basically just know and be OK with floating before you take this assignment. 09/02/2016
  • Housing was approximately 4.8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was AirBNB NE Minneapolis. Housing was located in city of North east Park. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the All the ICUs department(s) in the hospital. Beware !!!. If you are offered a position and ICU position here, this is a FLOAT position. You are floated twice between one shift due to their core staff mostly working 8 hours. This happens almost every single shift even though you are told this is not a float position. If you like to float and be treated like a ping pong ball then this is the position for you. I wish I would have known how awful this assignment was before taking it. 06/04/2016
  • Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was ESA. Housing was located in city of Brooklyn Center. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Housing is expensive due to a small number of apartment complexes not offering shorter then 6 month contracts.
