  • Housing was approximately none mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none. Housing was located in city of none. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. 07/29/2013
  • Very little decent housing in the Goldsboro, NC and surrounding areas that is in a decent neighborhood, affordable and convenient to Cherry Hospital. I worked in the psychiatric department(s) in the hospital. My initial interaction with the nurse recruiter and the educational nursing staff who were involved in travel nurse orientation was very nice and acommadating. However during the first week of orientation it became apparent that there were underlying currents of poor staff morale especially on the nursing units and the orientation staff appeared to be attempting to shield the "new nurses" from this. The unit nursing supervisors would watch the nurses that were assigned to their units and make assumptions based on behaviors they observed without getting to know the nurse. Some of the nurse supervisors were very nice others were not. There is an obvious race disparity at this facility among nurses. There are only a few black nurses. Most of the nurses are white. I saw no other races represented in the nursing staff. The psychiatric technicians interact mostly with the patients and they are mainly African-Americans (psych techs) and the full time state nurses seem to treat the techs as if they are not equal employees. The technicians seem to be treated in a realm of their own class, by the nurses. The full time state employee nurses act as if they are in charge of the travelers and as if travel nurses are beneath them in some manner. There were some travel nurses that I did note to be exceptions to this rule and I was not there long enough to find out why. There was one lady who was a travel nurse who stated that she had been there 14 years and would never accept a full time state job. Overall, Cherry hospital was an awful experience. I went there to determine if it would be a place I would like to work as a full time employee and I learned my answer quickly! The nurse manager that I was assigned to told me "I am a Hard A** and a Bad A**!! It turned out she was both and very RUDE and unprofessional to boot!! I would hate to know that I had a family member who was in this hospital for treatment of a mental illness. I was very disappointed.
  • I worked in the or department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was forgot. Housing was located in city of goldsboro. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • The staff overall were friendly to travelers. The orientation was one week and you did have a few tests to take. One psych open book test and one math /med test that was not open book.

    I found my own housing.Many nurses stayed in area motels. As a Traveler you were 1st to float and sometimes were floated frequently in a 12, or 16 hr shift. Generally they had one R.N., one L.P.N. and 3-5 HCTs. (it was a psychiatric State institution).Policys were not always common sense and they had you do paperwork that was redundant, very micro managed and R.N.s were not very autonomous in their decision making. BUT... it offered great Southern hospitality and good cooking and I met some wonderful human beings! I did receive the schedule I asked for but many travelers and others did not and there wasnt anything you could do about it.They made that quite clear.I would return.Many nurses stayed in area motels and others found their own housing.
