- I worked in the operating room department(s) in the hospital. Very traveler friendly small OR. The staff complained a lot about how busy they were but that's because most of them have never worked anywhere else so had nothing to compare it to. I had to take a lot of call, sometimes two weekends a month plus at least one shift during the week. I rarely got called in during the week but they let their surgeons book whatever they want on weekends so Saturday was like any weekday and I always worked. The area is beautiful! College town (Cal Poly) and the bay towns of Morro Bay and Cayucos were very close. I would definitely go back! 07/14/2020 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was provate residence. Housing was located in city of San Luis Obispo. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I stayed in an RV on private property
- I worked in the ICU/ER department(s) in the hospital. - 3 bed ICU, 18 beds on MedSurg, 5-6 in ER with 2 trauma bays.
- Staff and Docs are nice, there are bad eggs but thats just normal.
- At night if an emergency happens, you need to know your stuff because help is ON CALL. You need to be able to work alone.
- In house staff numbers - 1 ICU, 2-3 MedSurg, 2-3 OB, 2-3 ER, 1 ER Doc who is IM or FM trained. I havent seen any ER trained docs. During the day they have Xray, CT, MRI, a few RTs, PT, OT, OR staff (2-3 CRNAs, no AN MDs, 2-3 Surg Docs, and ~8 OR staff workers) and social work. The regular stuff.
- Sidney is an oil boom town, small, rich, and friendly.
- The city is nice but about 1-3 hours from anything like a walmart, bestbuy, a mall, ect ect.
- There is hiking about 1 hour south
- lots of bars and casinos
- Food is INSANELY pricey. about 20-40% more than down south in texas, colorado, or other comparable remote areas. 06/16/2015 Housing was approximately 0.7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Pheasent Run. Housing was located in city of Sidney. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing is terribly expensive. Im talking 1500 for a studio and 2300 for a 2 bedroom. Internet is restricted to a certain amount of GBs per month... so no netflix binges. Water can smell like rotten eggs at times (due to Fracking).
But besides that the pay for travel nurses trumps most issues. You are here to make money (just like the oil workers)... take in the small town vibe and the country fresh air. It's worth the headaches.
