  • Staffing is based on RN/LPN module. Always very well staffed. Orientation is very long!(one week) many competencies to complete. As a traveler, you should be expected to be able to start IV's and not have to be supervised. It is not very clinically challenging. Computer system is tedious and redundant. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Area is beautiful, but rural! Be prepared to drive at least 45 minutes for department stores etc.
  • I worked in the M/S department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private house.. Housing was located in city of Chester. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing was very difficult to find. Didn't get housing up until 4 days before my assignment started. It is very difficult to get housing in this rural area. While it was nice to have a house, it wasn't very tidy. Trash removal was an issue too. Had to pay to go to the dump. Perk: Cable and local phone was included.
  • This is a very pretty small hospital, very caring to the patients. well educated, motivated staff. Not a real high tech place, but the area is beautiful esp in the fall. computer system for orders and charting very tedious to use and learn, other than that the ICU unit is nice. (If an aggressive critical care nurse you would be easily bored here.)
  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private house. Housing was located in city of protorsville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. rural area, the hospital contracts with a realator to find housing. It is a ski area so some travelers were moved during assignment because of ski rentals etc. I was in a house that the owner was great, but the house was for sale and they wanted to show it, (working nights that was an issue for me), and the furniture was old and not in good shape for the most part. However the area was nice, and having my own house compensated for the other issues. plus the owner was very nice and tried to rectify any issues. a interesting experience from the usual complex housing.
