- I worked in the ICU/ED department(s) in the hospital. This is my second assignment here and my second time extending to a full year. Great small town hospital. ICU will be mostly Intermediate/Medical patients with the occasional vent or pressor. Great place if you need a bit of a break from hectic assignments if you don't need to have a challenge every day. ED is small as well, friendly staff/docs. Good place to get cross trained from ICU if you are interested in that. Major traumas, MIs, strokes bypass to Medford unless they walk in the door. 08/08/2020 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Ayala Properties. Housing was located in city of Ashland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Slightly expensive but very nice condo. You can get cheaper in Medford, but I like Ashland and still came in under my stipend.
- I worked in the Critical care float department(s) in the hospital. Wonderful location for exploring on days off. Perks for being under a nursing union like decent ratios and sometimes break nurses (although many perks specifically exclude travelers).
Job not advertised as a float position, very much a float position. Frequently multiple floats a shift. Scheduling is absolutely awful, requests are not welcome or honored. Island shifts are the norm. No block scheduling.
Staff isn’t openly hostile to travelers, but overall attitude is that they are a third class citizen they are forced to endure to keep good ratios. 03/19/2020 Housing was approximately 15-30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Rv. Housing was located in city of Changed . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing is limited and expensive. RV campgrounds aren’t close to the hospital, and have limited to no availability to long term stays during peak tourist season.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Small community hospital. Very friendly staff. Building is old, but they have a pretty good Epic/computer setup. ICU was 4 beds with mostly PCU level patients, when I left they were starting to staff with 1RN/1LPN teams to save money. ICU RNs including travelers get cross-trained to ED, which is interesting and fairly laid-back as well. 07/13/2018 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Anjou Club. Housing was located in city of Talent. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Arranged my own housing. AC liked having a travel nurse, gave me a garage at no extra charge with furnished rental. Good central air (you'll need it in the summer), pool, workout room. Ashland/Talent is just 45min from a small local ski hill, so great place to be in the winter.
