- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. The ICU department staff is wonderful and helpful! They are usually staffed well and they are very good at teamwork (this was on nights, days is different I am told). They are very traveler friendly but LOTS of extra paperwork and classes online to get started. Then, I took an assignment on the neuro stepdown unit which was AWFUL!! You do NOT want to work in their neuro department. It is constant discharge, admit, and transfer. The staff is seldom friendly with the exception of a few. They are all miserable and the only way I can describe it is toxic!! They will drain you! The PCT's are lazy and very unfriendly towards travelers in neuro. In ICU everyone is great though. The same woman manages neuro and ICU and she is AWFUL!!!!!! I can not reiterate this enough. If you are on nights, you usually don't have to deal with her unless it is something in particular. Overall, I would recommend only the ICU. 02/24/2017 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Roxbury South. Housing was located in city of Albuquerque. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Fully furnished, nice little one bedroom but not in a great area and constantly smells like pot!
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. I worked nights in the ER and thought almost everyone was great. The RNs here are helpful and docs at night are laid back. I've been rotated a few times to day shift and it is a different world. Nights are better overall. RNs have a five patient load regardless of acuity. Acuity at this hospital isn't terrible, but I've had moments when I feared for my license. Orientation? Not much, but everyone is helpful, so you'll get by. Tight-knit group that is welcoming. Scheduling is basically when they need you. I've worked every weekend, usually Sat or Sun, and occasionally will have both. I enjoyed ABQ, lots to do outdoors, plenty of culture, lots of restaurants, people are alright, but the city is sleepy compared to other major cities. Places close early. Some parts, like any city can be shady at night, but overall, I never felt unsafe. 02/11/2016 Housing was approximately less than 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Roxbury. Housing was located in city of Albuquerque. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing was fine. A bit overpriced for ABQ, but it was fully furnished with the basics, utilities were included, and pet friendly. Could use some updating and some maintenance, but it's temporary, so it's fine. Internet is horribly slow! Apartment was close to work and in a nice part of ABQ. Traffic in the city isn't bad at all,so it's easy to get anywhere with a car.
- I worked in the Emergency Room department(s) in the hospital. Being a Native American. I was not accepted. Too much lateral violence. The manager is unkind. 03/24/2015 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Diamond Rio. Housing was located in city of Albuquerque. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
- I worked in the Oncology department(s) in the hospital. 03/14/2008 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was nice. Housing was located in city of Albuquerque. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. very traveler friendly. many staff members were once travelers, even charge nurse and department head. took turns floating (everyone took a turn) only floated to step-down. gained a lot of weight while there (7 months) these people love to cook 08/03/2007 Housing was approximately 14 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was EXTENDED STAY DELUXE. Housing was located in city of RIO RANCHO. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. HAD BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF THE SANDIA MOUNTAINS
