  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. This is one of the two Best hospitals I have ever worked at. The teamwork is great, and they are very traveler friendly. In addition, the inter-departmental communications and relations are good. All of the staff, including the director and charge nurses were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely return there for another assignment. 08/14/2020
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Self. Housing was located in city of Fairfax City. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Whoever put all 5s, is BS...they must be management. This was one of my worst assignments after 4 yrs of travel nursing, and I would never return to this hospital, or any hospital that was HCA managed. For HCA hospitals, you are required to do about 40 hours of online modules before you get there. (I think they paid $200 for this). I almost missed my opportunity to start on time, as I had to drive for 4 days to get there, after the modules were done...and, the modules seemed never-ending - took me a few days to complete. For charting, they use a very old version of Meditech, which is dos-based, a very challenging, and time-consuming software, that is in the dark ages, frustrating to edit a text, no spell-check, and no good flow to their will hating life if you use their charting system. Some of the people there are NASTY, aggressive, on their high-horse, not travel-friendly, and poor team players...and, because they have staffing issues, they have no choice but to keep the nasty people around. The place is very unorganized. Many of the techs are super lazy. If you don't make friends with one of them, you are hosed. Sometimes the patient ratios were higher than they should have been in the ER, not fun. And some charge nurses wouldn't even consider helping or finding help when you desperately needed it. Very high turnover place. Pay seemed relatively good though...but, because it was so expensive to live, there, it really wasn't a good deal...not worth all these troubles. I was counting the days before this assignment ended. Traffic is horrendous!!! If you live more than a few miles, expect a long drive, with lots of stops. If you plan to go on any highways, leave super early...or you will be late for sure. Expect toll fees as well, to drive to some places. It's very stressful driving there, compared to other places. The weather in VA/MD area is often overcast and muggy and rainy in the summer, and bitter cold in the winter. Weather is, overall, not a good aspect of the area, unless you prefer the description above. If you see any blue to the sky, consider it a good day. The restaurants options are amazing...very cultural place, lots of awesome ethnic food favorite thing about this place. Also, you are not too far from other international/cultural aspects, such a DC. Also, Shenandoah mountains are about 1.5 hrs away, a beautiful place to drive/hike. 05/24/2018
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I found my won through craigslist. . Housing was located in city of Vienna. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing in the area (within 30 minutes drive) is super expensive. About $1200/month to rent a room in someone's apt or house. This is located in a very ritzy place, lots of money. To buy a small dumpy townhouse in the area would cost $650K. I would place a craigslist ad to find a place to rent. I was lucky to find a room in a cold/cluttered basement with parking about a block away - for $700/month.

  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I went to this hospital for my first travel assignment and no other travel assignment has compared to it! The entire ICU staff is wonderful. I was treated like core staff there. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They even work with you with your work schedule. I pretty much worked the days I requested to work. I plan on going back there someday! I still keep in contact with some of my coworkers that I worked with there. 12/29/2014
