  • I worked in the CTICU department(s) in the hospital. The CTICU staff are not very welcoming to travelers and even told me “we really don’t need travelers, not sure why they hired you all.” Management is very reluctant to work with your schedule needs/requests and has no problem working you every weekend and making you rotate every other week between dayshift and nightshift. Block scheduling is not an option. I was floated my very first shift off orientation. My preceptors on orientation were rude and condescending. Parking is a major issue. Saint Louis, like any major city, has unsafe areas (seemingly more here than other places) so I suggest staying in a hotel your first week to explore and see which areas you feel safe living in - don’t book housing blindly here. Good is great in Saint Louis! Highly suggest Forest Park, Ballpark Village, and shopping on Main St in Saint Charles. 03/13/2018
  • Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb 2636 Lemp Ave . Housing was located in city of Saint Louis. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the 56CTICU department(s) in the hospital. The managers made it very clear they did not want travelers on their unit and that they had no control over it. 03/06/2018
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was AirBNB. Housing was located in city of St Louis. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I used AirBnb but really any housing near the hospital is in a bad area. Most of the nurses drive in over 30min to work for safe living
  • I worked in the MICU department(s) in the hospital. I was contracted to work in the MICU (8400) & had a great experience. I floated to the medsurg floors (11100/11200) a few times and those units weren't as great. The MICU team has great teamwork & the acuity is fairly high. I enjoyed working there. They never gave me patients I didn't feel comfortable with. 10/13/2017
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of St. Louis. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the M/S tele department(s) in the hospital. Hospital is huge and stuffed full of patients. My unit was in an older part and was run down with 2 patients per tiny room. Parking is expensive. Cafeteria was great and open late. Management and some of the fellow nurses were unbelievably rude. 08/24/2016
  • The name of the housing complex was private. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • They did not give me my password to get into their computer system. Hence during orientation I was unable to do MY job of learning. But they had not problem blaming me for their screw up. Hence the nursing profession has lost another GOOD nurse -- ME. Good-bye
  • The name of the housing complex was subsidy. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
