- I worked in the Neuro Trauma ICU department(s) in the hospital. Just finishing up my contract at Prisma Greenville Menorial Hospital in Greenville, SC. I was on the Trauma Neuro ICU. The staff was great to work with! Many staff members are former travelers, so it was very traveler friendly. I never felt like they were dumping a bad assignment on me or treated me different than full time staff.
The patients are a mix of trauma and neuro. There isn’t a tech, but they have a free float nurse to help out on top of a free float charge nurse. They also have ICU transport nurses that can take your patient to MRI or CT for you, which was really nice! Level 1 Trauma. Teaching facility. Ended up renewing for a second 13 week assignment while I was here. Also floated to MSICU. They treated me well too! 09/14/2020 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private house. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the M/S/Renal department(s) in the hospital. I was told I would be working on Stroke/Tele, not Med/Surg took EKG test and they requested Stroke Cert. I was told to Run!! 1st night by their staff, then the preceptor told me that I too slow, and I needed to cut and paste another RN's assessment!!! What??? CN gave B/P med's to already low HD pt (bottom out) 12/06/2019 Housing was approximately 35 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Spartanburg. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I stayed in a private home 35 miles away. Owners have been accommodating and friendly. I should have done my homework on location some nights I sat in traffic 1.5 hours. Asked staff for faster way, maybe back roads, no help.
- I worked in the MSICU department(s) in the hospital. I was told in my interview by the nurse manager I would occasionally float to units I had experience in. I was hired for the MSICU and when I arrived found out it was fully staffed. I was basically lied to and was now an ICU float pool nurse even though I have no trauma experience and I made that clear in the interview. So I raised concern about this with my company as this isn't safe for the patients. My recruiter was yelled at by the traveler supervisor and the MSICU nurse manager angrily said "You can float or quit your contract." I'm not about to risk my license and be a doormat for this hospital that clearly has no regard for travelers. This was my worst assignment I've ever had. Proceed with caution. 09/19/2018 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Court Ridge. Housing was located in city of Travelers Rest. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
- I worked in the Neuro Trauma ICU department(s) in the hospital. When hired for Neuro Trauma ICU you will cover both Trauma ICU and Neuro ICU, regardless of preference for one or the other - most core staff and travelers prefer Trauma because the Neuro ICU NPs/MDs are intense to say the least and most prefer that travelers do not take care of their patients. For a level 1 trauma center and "teaching hospital", the acuity was pretty low and there was only ONE resident (no fellows) on night shift; so you were still required to call the attending for anything of importance. The staff was welcoming and friendly for the most part, and they are very used to travelers as their turnover rate is high and when I was there travelers were 50% of their staff. The pay was good, and I extended my contract several times. They no longer let travelers pick up OT unless they are >3-4 nurses short, so not many opportunities for extra money. Overall, great place for a first travel assignment, would recommend to others. 06/20/2018 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was . Housing was located in city of Mauldin. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Found housing via a Facebook group - Greenville Rents
- I worked in the Neuro Trauma ICU department(s) in the hospital. The staff was great. The only 2 issues I encountered were 1)neuro NPs & MDs were ruthless. If you don't have a backbone, just treat lightly. 2) I expected much higher acuity than what there actually was. The trauma patients were mostly just broken legs or rib fractures. Rarely was it a true trauma. However, this was my first assignment and I could not have been happier - I kept extending. I would highly recommend this hospital to any traveler. 06/05/2017 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Lakecrest Apartments. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
- I worked in the transitional department(s) in the hospital. This was my first assignment as a traveler and it could not have gone better. I worked at the campus on Grove RD. In 13 weeks I only floated 5 times. Even the floors I floated to were helpful and kind to me. They use Epic for charting and all travelers get two days of an Epic class. I noticed I was always treated fairly in regards to my assignment. I was never "dumped on" and I felt like my other RNs, charge, and manager were supporting me. The tests in orientation were easier than I expected. Staff uses a parking garage with covered walk way to hosp. Cafeteria has Starbucks, Subway, Chik-fil-a, and Au Bon Pan. Nurses can wear blue and white. 11/22/2016 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was McBee Station. Housing was located in city of Greenville . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. McBee station was great to me. They offer 3 month leases and I rented my furniture through Corporate Connection. You can't beat this location. I can see Main Street from my apartment and Publix is a stones throw from my building. I'm not kidding, their is a walking tunnel from publix into my apartment's parking garage. The apartment complex also has a small gym and pool. The only negative side is that this was pricey.
- I worked in the Telemetry department(s) in the hospital. Staff were super helpful and friendly. I was floated a lot, sometime twice in a shift. Travelers float first, there was no rotation. Orientation was ok but there were 2 pass/fail tests and you had to get above 90% which is ridiculous. They're using EPIC now and have great equipment. Good CNA's. The cafeteria is a food court and it's great; 24 hour Starbucks!!! Parking was a hike. Housing was very reasonable. 03/11/2016 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Greer. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. My housing was very affordable and nice. I rented a room on Airbnb and was very happy with it.
- I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the NICU. Assignment loads were very heavy always 4:1, occasionally 5:1. All babies were on the same schedule. They still do paper charting and hand write orders. Management was not open to hearing concerns from staff. 03/23/2015 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Azalea Hill. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The apartment was very nice and quiet. Lots of space. Close to the hospital. Pet friendly. Gave a discount to hospital employees.
- I worked in the O.R. department(s) in the hospital. 12/06/2013 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Howell Commons Complex. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
