  • Cheaper housing outside of Nashville proper. Safety can be issue though. Traffic is HORRIBLE. 10/10/2017
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of Hermitages . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. Along with parking being far away (they have shuttles) safety is an issue- reports of several sexual assaults over recent years occurring in the parking garages. A girl had jumped one morning from the garage I was exiting, as I was walking to the hospital - body on ground, police everywhere- but the hospital doesn’t address it; staff saying “it happens all the time”- very upsetting to way to start your morning. Hospital staff can be demeaning, with the “Vanderbilt mentality” of being smarter and more important- I encountered some very hostile people that made it openly known that travelers were not welcome there. Huge OR and they are not well organized and will give you the horrible cases, then the service leader will leave you hanging with little help. Lots of things to do in town though with great restaurants.
  • Housing can be pricy near hospital. But affordable in nearby counties and outer suburbs. I stayed with family. 10/10/2017
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of Nashville . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. Hostile environment in the OR, and I heard in other areas as well. Pay for parking- a long walk from garage. Security a joke. Walked about 8 miles a day in OR, just getting supplies- place thrives in chaos and only a few are willing to help you. Even management was rude. Their break room is segregated by service- each service sits at a particular table , like a high school atmosphere. Very behind in some equipment.
  • I worked in the ICU Float department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the ICU float pool and was floated just about everywhere. I was only floated to a non-ICU floor three times in the 6 months I was there. I would give a higher scores for the question regarding how nice the doctors were but I had bad experiences with ego driven doctors and APRNs in the Neuro ICU. Don't expect to get sick patients, which I guess is pretty typical for a traveler. Otherwise the MICU and Trauma are great places to work! 04/26/2015
  • Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I took stipend and commuted.
  • I worked in the MICU department(s) in the hospital. Overall a great experience. There are alot of new grads in the ICU. They donot give travelers the sickest pts, you will usually get the chronic or stepdown pts. Computer charting, docs enter their own orders. Didnot have to float outside the MICU. Staff was very helpful 02/26/2007
  • The name of the housing complex was I took the stipend. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
