  • I worked in the LD/OB department(s) in the hospital. The Hospital is very traveler friendly. I came there thinking I could do without shopping but soon felt very secluded being 1 1/2 hours from a place to shop, have some of your chain places. Best part of Ridgecrest I found is good Mexican food and love Grape Leaf Restaurant. Another advantage at the hospital is they bring around a cart with made up plates and feed their staff at night for free. Food in the Cafeteria food is very cheap. 09/14/2015
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was VIP Housing. Housing was located in city of Ridgecrest. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I had a apt. that had a garage, 1 bedroom with a back yard. The kitchen was very outdated but useable. The cost was very high for the area. Apartments rent for $400-600 but this housing furnished was $1548 a month. I had no problems here but other nurses have had problems with AC not working, being very hot.
  • I worked in the Medsurg/Tele department(s) in the hospital. This place is unique but an awesome experience. VERY small rural hospital, only twenty-something inpatients at a time for the whole place. So workload is extremely manageable and I enjoyed being at work. Mostly filipino staff who are the best! Loved every one of them, all super friendly. They don't get too many travelers so they take you in like you're one of their own and really made me feel welcome. Very cute little town, plenty of cool little shops and places to eat, a movie theater. But its super isolated and takes 2-3 hours to get anywhere outside of this town (bakersfield, LA, etc). Overall I'd recommend this assignment in a heartbeat. 08/19/2014
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was 5802 Tattersall Dr. Apt 31. Housing was located in city of Ridgecrest. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Rented room in private home - very nice and accomodating lady.
