- I worked in the ICU Float department(s) in the hospital. Flex Float, during orientation online, the proctor extensively wasted 3/4's of the time chit chatting and specifically socializing with particular people online while the rest of us chose to engage or just sat there and waited for her to finish then at the last minute she would attempt to crowd as much pertinent information in what was left during that hour. When essentially we could've used that information to download useful UNC apps and go over parking and required apps. etc. You need an app to locate the units, that are spread all over the hospital. And even that is only so useful, because only an insider can show you where to park, use the app for parking, the right entrance and elevators. Until then you will waste a lot of time and money parking in the wrong deck and walking a mile to reach the right elevators to get to the units. Then theres an app for clocking in and if you don't know how to download the damn thing you will waste alot of time trying to figure it out, and hopefully you will have access to a computer once you do, so that you can punch in on the computer on time. So inconvienent. This is not the most friendly traveler hospital. You have to speak up for yourself. There were a lot of young nurses there as regular staff. The most experienced nurses overall were from the Float Pool or were travelers. The young staff nurses complained and whined alot, over everything, it was like hearing nails scraping across the board. 02/17/2021 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was extended stay. Housing was located in city of Chapel Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The extended stay was like a small effiencieny apartment with excellent parking and less than 10mins away from the hospital. I would've negotiated a better rate if I'd known that I would've been spending as much time as I ended up spending there. Close to Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, and Trader Joes. And a few gas stations. Front Desk was very friendly and accomodating, and washer/dryer on second floor.
- I worked in the Labor and Delivery department(s) in the hospital. If you are a day shift nurse definitely be prepared to factor in additional time for finding parking and doing a park and ride to work. Night shift can park little bit closer to the hospital but mostly on weekends. Will have to pay for parking. Getting access to required things for work took longer than planned but that may vary from unit to unit. 01/10/2020 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Realm Patterson Place. Housing was located in city of Durham. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. The location to the hospital was great. Plenty of places in the area for grocery, restaurants and etc. Minimal traffic to hospital in the evening. Way more traffic to the hospital in the morning time. Housing expensive because of location but would not recommend staying here.
- I worked in the Perioperative department(s) in the hospital. 10/22/2017 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Sunstone Apartments. Housing was located in city of Chapel Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
- I worked in the surgical floor department(s) in the hospital. Parking was the worst part of the assignment. I only lived 10 minutes from the hospital, but day shift is not allowed to park on site, but at park and rides throughout the area. Very frustrating. 01/10/2008 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Pointe at Chapel Hill. Housing was located in city of Chapel Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Beautiful complex but not much in the immediate area.
