  • I worked in the L&D department(s) in the hospital. 03/10/2017
  • Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Lodge. Housing was located in city of American Canyon. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. On the one hand, mandatory staffing ratios and breaks make the workload ridiculously easy. On the other, I feel like to get around the staffing laws they may have eliminated ancillary staff so the ICU has no PCT. I often had a hard time getting things done because I could never find anyone to help. Layout of the ICU is weird- it's very new and high tech but because there is no centralized nurses' station I often felt lost as to what was going on with anything else in the unit beyond my 2 patients. I also had an issue with the amount of patients that were 'off limits' to travelers because of lack of orientation when they didn't necessarily need to be (ex. craniotomies, come on). This caused staffing problems often because there are so many travelers on the unit and so few full time staff who are 'authorized' to take care of those patients. They make a lot of work for themselves when they don't have to. 02/15/2017
  • Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of Petaluma. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing in Petaluma due to cost and proximity to other activities. Highly recommend the city.
  • I worked in the Tele/MS department(s) in the hospital. Give you heaviest load. Unwarranted accusations. Let you be on Stand-bye by mode for 10 hrs. Inhumane !!! Half a day, you can't sleep waiting on the phone. Staff are bullies. Rediculous expectations of you knowing all their policies in 2 orientation days ??? 12/16/2016
  • Housing was approximately 65 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Baypoint. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
  • I worked in the Nurse Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. The hospital is very traveler friendly. Everyone seems very happy. Fellow nurses and doctors were accepting and lovely to work with. I worked in the Float pool, but was mainly sent to the Telemetry unit on 2North. 10/23/2014
  • Housing was approximately 31 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was River Oaks. Housing was located in city of Vacaville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The housing was nice, but the location was awful. The apartment was 31 miles from the hospital and a good 40 minute drive with no traffic. The location was sold as an easy 30 mile commute, but no commute in CA is easy. My first day of orientation it took me 1hr and 30 min to get there.
