- I worked in the Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. Even though my spouse and I jumped at the first good offer we had, we lucked out with this being our first assignment. We did our 13 week contract back in the summer of 2017 in the float pool. We were floated between PCU, Med surg, Oncology, and Ortho/neuro/surgical (ONS). We absolutely loved it, except for PCU who did a 4:1 ratio where you could take insulin gtts and levophed up to 5 mcgs (that had always been ICU status in my previous experience!). Although I thought ONS would be my least favorite department... it actually turned out to be my favorite! We loved the staff, charge nurses, and the CNAs on that floor. Super travel friendly! They were utilizing updated Meditech at the time, but were switching to EPIC two weeks after our contract end date. We asked to return for a shorter 7 week contract to get orientated with EPIC and they were more than happy to oblige and allowed us to take the full orientation with permanent employees. Plus, that had been the only charting system conversion I’ve ever experienced that launched without problems! I would definitely recommend as a first assignment for the beginner traveler and/or the experienced. I’ve even considered going back! 04/20/2020 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was rental . Housing was located in city of Rapid City . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. N/A
- I worked in the MSTel department(s) in the hospital. I enjoyed my experience at Rapid City Regional. I stayed a year! My supervisors, physicians and fellow nurses were great. Often we had an admit nurse, a discharge nurse, wound care team and others to help make my nursing load manageable. 08/26/2017 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Stoney Creek Highland. Housing was located in city of Rapid City. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Beautiful complex with fitness center and outdoor pool, walking paths, very friendly office staff.
- I worked in the med surg department(s) in the hospital. 10/31/2015 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private. Housing was located in city of Rapid City. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. If you want OT pay....this is the place to be. I'm used to taking a good amount of call as a traveler...actually this was the lowest amount of overall call that I've taken since being a nurse....but the call back was insane!!! It is not uncommon to work a 24 shift!!!That's just not in my definition of safe pt. care. 08/20/2014 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Mountain View Village Apartments. Housing was located in city of Box Elder. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. great pet friendly apartment complex, hardwood floors in kitchen and dining room, stainless steel appliances, great view of the black hills.
