Fast and crazy ER. Wouldn't have it any other way!
Charge Nurse ER (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – January 12, 2015
Crazy ER with VERY few resources (no IV team, scarce psych/social services, IV pumps hard to come by, etc.). Dignity Health has great benefits, including free HMO coverage to all family members, tuition reimbursement, decent PTO, as an RN you are a part of the CNA, 40 hours a year education pay, home/auto discounts, etc.
I felt supported by management even though I was a newbie RN when I started. Even when I left, the director will still offer rave reviews to my prospective employers. Very close-knot ER family, everyone will help you if you ask. It gets crazy, it is so busy but the shifts fly by. Management was always great with the self-scheduling and fair with vacations.
Decent pay, great benefits, flexible schedules, fair management style
Few 15 min breaks, scarce hospital resources
