  • I worked in the CICU department(s) in the hospital. All ICUs are short, expect to be tripled fairly frequently in those areas. That being said, CICU is more stepdown appropriate, taking mostly heart cath patients so the 3:1 is still very easy. 2:1 ratio is goal. Occasional Impellas, vents, IABPs but cardiac surgery is in a different ICU. Hospital very friendly, orientation super easy. Majority of travelers extend in all departments. Plenty of OT at this time if you like to work it, make sure you get a good rate! 05/04/2019
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Fort Amarillo RV park. Housing was located in city of Amarillo. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. RV park
  • I worked in the CMICU and SICU department(s) in the hospital. The charting used was Cerner but was a bit cumbersome and hard to maneuver through. CMICU was a large spread out unit and you sometimes felt isolated. SICU was smaller but had a similar layout. I worked nights and the manager was great about blocking shifts, wish all would be willing to do such. The staff was friendly and helpful. They were short staffed a lot of the times and 30% of the time I was given 3 patients. I stayed on the West side of Amarillo and felt safe. There wasn't much to site see locally but there were plenty of places to shop and eat. The weather was typical plains weather, stayed cold into May and then when it warmed, it got very HOT! I didn't extend because I had an assignment already lined up. I have found that most travelers there did extend. I would go back if I didn't have any other place to go but as a traveler, I like to travel!! Overall it wasn't a bad gig! 07/22/2016
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was FORT AMARILLO RV RESORT. Housing was located in city of Amarillo. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I travel with my own RV.
