  • I worked in the Stroke Tele department(s) in the hospital. The unit was very heavy generally- 6 patients, most of whom are confused or total cares. They don't always have the staff to cover sitter cases, and with 6 patients it can feel unsafe. Epic charting. Staff was friendly enough but as a traveler you will always have 6 patients and you will always get the first admission and heaviest patients. The nice thing is that you don't get a lot of off service patients on this unit, so my neuro assessments have really improved and the doctor is very easy to get ahold of over night. 02/26/2017
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private townhouse rental. Housing was located in city of Arlington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Arlington was a beautiful place to live. Fun, good food, close to D.C.
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. poorest nursing communication I have experienced. pts routinely placed in open beds without bed being cleaned or urine/blood from previous pt being removed from room. blood stains on curtains in rooms. However, computers were everywhere and they never suffered from a lack of IV pumps or other supplies. The staff were overwhelmingly good to work with but workload was difficult at best. little teamwork among staff and routinely you were left with working up complex patients to the detriment of the rest of your assignment. 10/11/2016
  • The name of the housing complex was na. Housing was located in city of na. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. The nurses are awful to travelers and float pool nurses. They are not grateful at all for the help that they desperately need and I am surprised that anyone agrees to help them or stays there as staff. 09/14/2016
  • Housing was approximately 13 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Stayed with friend. Housing was located in city of Fairfax. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. NICU staff are openly hostile to any staffing help given to them. They attack you about your pay, why they have to float (but the unit is always short), and are generally just miserable. They take their misery out on float pool and travel nurses. Their leadership is so poor that they cannot figure out how to make their staff happy without scapegoating. Many hospitals that I have been to either give a float differential or else do not float staff. Their Sr. Director is so bad that in trying to keep them happy she allows their bullying. Soon no one will want to help staff them and then we will see how happy they will be. 09/02/2016
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Reserve. Housing was located in city of Fairfax. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Really nice place.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. Travelers were treated as second rate citizens and the unit was one of the most poorly managed NICUs I've ever worked in. 10/31/2015
  • Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Reserve at Fairfax Corner. Housing was located in city of Fairfax VA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The apt was great. Highly recommend.
  • I worked in the Pediatric IMCU department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is in a really lovely part of Northern VA, and is very convenient to DC via the metro, which is a couple blocks north of the hospital. I was there during the spring, and the cherry blossoms were incredible. I rented a townhouse just behind the hospital, and was able to walk to work most days. Housing is expensive in this area, as expected, but there are plenty of options, and renters are competitive. There is a heavy SE Asian influence in this area, and you will find loads of great Vietnamese and Korean food within 10 minutes drive. The hospital is in the middle of an expension project, which I believe will complete in mid 2016. There are several cafeterias with good food at reasonable prices. The hospital is older, but well laid out. The Peds Intermediate Care Unit was very traveler friendly, and has a manager who is wonderfully accommodating during my time there. There is an expectation to float to similar units, and I did float regularly to PICU, NICU, and Gen Peds. Probably 10-12 times during my 13 week assignment. NICU is careful to provide only appropriate assignments to a non-NICU nurse. PICU tried on several occasions to give me an inappropriate assignment. Make sure to speak up for yourself for safety! Overall, I enjoyed my time at this facility, and would have extended if it had been available. I would definitely return again. 06/13/2015
  • Housing was approximately 0.1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private Home. Housing was located in city of Annandale. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the Peds South/IMC department(s) in the hospital. The scheduling for nights was horrible, on1 off 1. My schedule was nothing like staff, on every Sunday and worked every other weekend while, staff worked every 3rd weekend. Staff not very friendly on every unit I floated to and not helpful. Travelers that I have spoken to would not re-sign even if it was offered. 05/09/2015
  • Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Comfort Inn. Housing was located in city of Fairfax. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I worked a block schedule so I could stay at an extended stay and then return home for my time off from the hospital.
  • I worked in the TICU department(s) in the hospital. Horrible team work, manager nice but appears very passive aggressive/ inexperienced. some of the nurses are catty (I guess that's at every hospital). Some of the doctors will try to intimidate you and put you down, mainly speaking of the Trauma directors who's name is not even worthy of remembering.. The hospital itself is nice, average care, couple of racist nurses, patient population diverse which i liked, but if you're one of those racist nurses this is probably not the place for you. 01/23/2015
  • Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Rented room. Housing was located in city of Fairfax. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Rented a room in fairfax, be warned that traffic is pretty horrible driving towards Falls Church--- DC area, just plan in advance and be patient, the drive before 7 am is ok, the drive after 7pm is so-so, in between driving can be horrible.
  • I worked in the CCU, CV-ICU, T-ICU, MS-ICU department(s) in the hospital. Poor management (travelers were managing units). Staff was helpful/appreciative of traveler's help. Hospital let travelers go bc they falsified their competency skills check list. Parking ramp/pass provided by hospital. Expect to float as census changes frequently. Traffic to DC heavy in am and from DC heavy in evening. 09/23/2014
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was (Took stipend). Housing was located in city of Falls Church. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Took Stipend. Stayed at Oakwood Falls Church Corporate housing(furniture provided). Within walking distance of Metro and has shuttle during certain hours. Dog park within walking distance.
  • I worked in the Interventional Radiology department(s) in the hospital. There is no real management and everyone does things differently. The surgical techs after one acls class can push moderate sedation. Some people who won't be named are bullies and two faced so careful on that and will mess with your schedule or you will go to many ir units daily. I would go to a different unit. If you take call there is a lot of it. 08/28/2014

  • I worked in the Postpartum department(s) in the hospital. There are a lot of Indian, Asian, and Arab patients so be prepared to have cultural issues. Management is by far the main problem. Nurses and doctors are great and area is great near DC but none of their staff is happy to work for them because of management and lack of management. 07/31/2014
  • Housing was approximately Five mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of Falls church. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The area generally runs 800$-1000$ for a one bedroom

  • I worked in the NSICU department(s) in the hospital. GOOD PLACE TO WORK. STAFF SO RELIEVED TO HAVE ANYONE THAT THEY WELCOME TRAVELERS WITH OPEN ARMS. I THINK THEY HAVE AN ISSUE WITH KEEPING STAFFED EMPLOYEES BECAUSE OF MANAGEMENT. TRAVELERS DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH MANAGEMENT MUCH, THEREFORE I LOVED IT. PLANNING ON EXTENDING MY CONTRACT, OR RETURNING WITHIN THE YEAR. 07/19/2007
  • The name of the housing complex was DID NOT TAKE. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. DID NOT TAKE HOUSING. TRAFFIC IS A HORRIFIC BEING THAT IT IS THE MD/VA/DC AREA
