  • I worked in the intermediate care nursery (PICN) department(s) in the hospital. I was staffed as a traveler to relieve permanent staff for mandatory tours and information on opening of new children's hospital building (which the PICN, NICU, L&D, and maternity floors were not moving to), thus I often acted as a "team leader" or "resource nurse." The unit is set up with 3 separate room pods (varying from about 6-12 beds in each), although 2 pods are on the first floor and the 3rd is on the second floor, next door to maternity and attached to a "well-baby nursery" that is staffed by 2 PICN nurses at all times who attend c-sections. I did float to NICU on occasion, sometimes after 4 or 8 hours in PICN. Some staff are 12h and some are 8h which is confusing for staffing and I sometimes picked up someone else's assignment if they were working an 8 and leaving at 3:00. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful, I integrated into the unit easily and would've considered staying longer if it wasn't for the desire to explore a few more cities. 01/15/2018
  • Housing was approximately 30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private home. Housing was located in city of San Francisco. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Arranged my own housing using stipend, since I was looking for housing in San Francisco instead of Palo Alto. Easy drive from San Francisco to Palo Alto for day shift (7a-7p), difficult to find reasonable housing with short term lease in SF.
  • I worked in the Peds Surgical floor department(s) in the hospital. Loved this experience! Located in the heart of the bay southern panhandle so everything was just a short drive or train ride away!! 02/19/2017
  • Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was On El Camino Real. Housing was located in city of Sunnyvale. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Walking distance to Trader Joe's and PF Chang's, as well as the train stop
