- I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. This was an excellent first assignment and the nurses were some of the smartest and kindest I’ve ever met. 04/29/2020 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Personal home found on furnished finder. Housing was located in city of Wilmington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Separate apartment located in a private home with direct access to masonboro island and the intracoastal waterway
- I worked in the Medical/Oncology department(s) in the hospital. Unfortunately this was my first assignment and it almost put a bad taste in my mouth for traveling. Every nurse here fears losing their license every shift because the ratios here and lack of resources, especially on nights, are ridiculous. 6:1 on a BUSY medsurg floor WITH sick cancer patients that are mostly comfort measures and deserve your time and care but you're too busy caring for the behavioral patients that the other units don't want instead. Everything seems to be dysfunctional here and I, like the previous reviewer have been counting down my shifts since day 1 and cry before coming into work almost every shift. I am a strong, independent nurse that came from a Level 1 trauma center/teaching hospital and I still cannot handle this mess. I do not recommend this hospital to anyone. Also every one that works here hates it to, which makes it that much worse. 11/16/2019 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private listed (furnished finder). Housing was located in city of Wilmington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I found a room to rent on furnished finder or travelnursehousing.com, dont remember which. The housing has been great.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. ICU is old and the rooms are small and inefficient. There's definite tension between MICU and CCU with competition for ownership. If you're an MICU nurse, you aren't a cardiac nurse, even if you have a ton of cardiac experience or transferred from there. Lots of random rules. 01/31/2018 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Sea River Realty. Housing was located in city of Wilmington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Many beachfront properties to rent, especially in the offseason. Beaches are about 20 minutes from the hospital. Lots of apartments in the area geared towards college students.
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Orientation to unit was six hours with permeant staff member that made it clear she was not happy about having to orient me. ER is setup in pods with six rooms and two chairs occasionaly there would be two nurses in a pod but most nights it was 1:8 Zero ER Techs patients are placed directly into room from the lobby with only a complaint and if your lucky a set of vitals and "Primary Nursing" is the term they use. Worked with three different charge nurses one would run around yelling at you why haven't you done this yet, one would occasionally help you with a bad patient, and one just sat on their ass and never got off the chair except to go get something to eat. Started counting down the number of shifts from night one. saw three travelers that worked one or two shifts and then never saw them again. Highly recommend you look elsewhere for an assignment. 05/23/2017 Housing was approximately 0.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Cypres Grove. Housing was located in city of Wilmington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Older with some maintenance issues but for 13 weeks you can put up with anything.
