- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. Beautiful scenery. Nicest OR facility I have worked at. This department suffers from high turnover, especially in management. Overall a very nice place to work. 12/11/2017 Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was AirBnB i. Housing was located in city of Clifton. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. AirBnB is expensive but worth it.
- I worked in the emergency department(s) in the hospital. They have really tied their ER nurses hands with their technology, as have many places. The amount of logging in and out (they don't have badge scanners) just to draw labs, start an IV and give some medications was the most I've ever seen anywhere. As for the schedule, make sure that if you don't want to work every single weekend and holiday that you state you scheduling needs clearly in your contract. I worked 3pm to 3am and definitely do NOT recommend this schedule at this particular place. It seemed like the staff were very nice once they warmed up to you, but there were many nights where I worked 12 hours with pretty much NO tech help and my rooms were kept filled to the brim while the other (staff) nurses sat around on their phones or laughing and joking with the techs. This in addition to their cumbersome process really slowed my nursing down and made me much less effective so I really hated going to work. however, I made friends that I still stay in touch with. Grand Junction can't be beat as a fun little town with the most immense list of options for activities located all around the area. I can see me living in this area somewhere someday. 10/18/2016 The name of the housing complex was na. Housing was located in city of na. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I had private housing, it was an Air B&B and it was very expensive, small, and I had to move due to the noise and being unable to sleep during the day. My second place was through a friend and wasn't actually very much better, but it was much less expensive.
- I worked in the Med/Surg department(s) in the hospital. Great hospital, staff, location! Lots to do in the area. Really enjoyed my experience. 02/29/2016 Housing was approximately .1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Found my own. Housing was located in city of Grand Junction. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing. The hospital provided a list of places to rent in the area.
