  • I worked in the cardiac telemetry department(s) in the hospital. This is the 5th hospital I've worked at and I'm going permanent. Virginia Mason offers great support for staff (IV therapy team, transport team to retrieve your blood for you from the blood bank, etc.) which enables you to focus on your tasks of being a nurse. I floated to multiple areas over my 10+ months there and found most units to be helpful and accepting of travelers. Doctors are available a majority of the time over night as it is a teaching hospital with residents. 12/22/2014
  • 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 Tacoma. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Sought my own housing as housing near the hospital is overpriced.
  • I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. This hospital sucks. I did a contract there three years ago. My contract was cancelled after two weeks. This is common at VM. The PCU manager Roweena kind of slippery who pits staff against each other. The techs are her eyes and with few exceptions are useless. Most of the staff are travelers and nurses from the third world. Fend for yourself parking. The work is fast paced to the point of being dangerous. I understand that CCU had problems in the past but is better now. PCU is still a disaster from what I hear. 04/01/2014
  • Housing was approximately 0.1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was M Street Apartments. Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. M Street Apartments are amazing. I lived there for a year. I left only because I could no longer afford it. rent started at $1500 for a studio then went up by a couple hundred every contract extension. Great apartment if you can get it. West side is best.
  • I worked in the CCU department(s) in the hospital. 08/23/2012
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Summit. Housing was located in city of Seattle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. studio apartment, comfortable with washer and dryer. My window faced a very busy road and was loud.
