- I worked in the med/surg department(s) in the hospital. Parking is expensive, not a great area to live but not terrible. Ratios are fantastic, resources are great, charting is minimal. 12/29/2016 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was craigslist. Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Rent in seattle is outrageous, remember that
- I worked in the float pool department(s) in the hospital. Staff are extremely welcoming and kind. You do not feel like a traveler here, no dumping on. I've been here 3 times and will come back for a forth if they let me. Its not glamorous. It is a county hospital in a crappy neighborhood with lousy parking but for me those are the minor details. The staff more than makes up for all of that. They rapid response or stat nurses are great, the codes are run like a well oiled machines. 12/22/2016 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Griffis. Housing was located in city of seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. My only complaint with the housing was they were doing some upgrades so there was a bit of construction annoyances. Otherwise the leasing office folks were friendly, helpful and actually intelligent...Location was great, walking distance to pike place market.
- I worked in the Burn/Peds ICU department(s) in the hospital. I could not say enough good things about Harborview and the folks I worked with. My coworkers were all very welcoming and professional. I got to see a lot of interesting cases and they were open to me taking difficult assignments and helping out where I had an experience deficit so that I could learn. I had minimal burn experience and NO pedi, but a lot of trauma experience which was always kept in mind for assignments. They use a version of Cerner for charting and have ample equipment. They keep a bistro open during PM shift so you have more than vending machine options. 10/03/2016 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Stanford . Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Small and super expensive, but that's how summer housing goes in Seattle. Keep in mind housing is insanely expensive and traffic is horrendous when you're considering contracts.
- I worked in the PACU department(s) in the hospital. Best assignment I've had. Staff were extremely friendly. Excellent city. Reasonable workload. Traveled with my family, lots to do in the region. We'll probably relocate there when done traveling. 11/28/2015 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Three Twenty. Housing was located in city of Seattle . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. It was a small apartment in a very desirable section of the city...the nightlife section. Easy access to public transit. Great for a single Traveler, but was not a good apartment or location for a family with a child.
- I worked in the 6MB/ 3W department(s) in the hospital. Refered to by staff as HarborZoo. Fun place to work, see many dx and surgeries that aren't seen elsewhere. Worked on an Inpatient planned surgery ortho/neuro/gyn/urology floor. Not as crazy as other floors, but you are first to float. Amazing Stat/Rapid Response team. Old bldg (3W Neuro) tiny rooms, many seasoned RN's. GREAT POTLUCKS! 12/23/2014 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Houseboat. Housing was located in city of Wallingford. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Rented a houseboat off Lake Union/ Wallingford found on craigslist. Penty of options for bus, don't drive.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. I loved this place! I wish I could go staff there, but the weather is not suiting for my husband. :) 10/13/2008 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Overlook at Westridge. Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing was great! Dog park down the street!
- I worked in the ICU holding department(s) in the hospital. I have been a nurse for 28 years and have traveled for the past 3 years. There are lots of things to do in Wa. It is a beautiful state with outstanding scenery. The hospital is a county hospital and trauma center for 5 states, so a lot of Neuro pts. The ER hallways are packed with overflowing pts. Parking is expensive and the traffic is rated 16 as the worse in the nation. 10/20/2007 Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Maple Grove Campground. Housing was located in city of Everett. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. There are no real amenities, other than restrooms and laundry facilities. Basically a pricey parking lot for RVs
