- I worked in the PCU float department(s) in the hospital. UCSD has several campuses.
I was hired as PCU float.
In the interview, I was told I would float between the 4 PCU units at Hillcrest. Truth is, I float to all the campuses on a regular basis and almost half the time I end up on m/s/t units.
Parking sucks. You have to pay. Day shift is more than nights. $50-$80/month.
UCSD does not pay the greatest because it's a "destination" assignment and the rent is outrageous so keep that in mind.
Spanish is a plus
Hillcrest is an old hospital, supplies are spread through out strange places. Sulpizio and Thornton are more organized and newer.
They use EPIC charting so that's a plus.
No control over scheduling, every other weekend required.
All in all, it's a good place and a good gig. Tons of travelers here, and many of them end up staying. UCSD pays their staff well, trains them well, follows California staffing laws.
