Dont do it. You will be roped into a 2yr contract or buying out of it. Its not your typical residency. They basically make you sit in a classroom for 7 wks doing paperwork and skills testing that you literally just did in nursing school, then put you on the floor with multiple preceptors so it is very difficult to learn things. Half the preceptors are only doing it for the extra cash and arent interested in teaching you the ropes. The pay is lower than what they had told us when we signed the contract and management is not very helpful either. Everyone is leaving to go to other facilities because of how bad it is at this place. They dont have the equipment needed on the floors, thw doctors are very rude and unprofessional also. Ive seen several not even go into the patients room and they write a note like they have seen them. The doctors only care about writing a million scripts because thats how they get paid. They also will try to make all the new rns work all holidays because as i was told i was the "low man on the totem pole". Very classy. They give you phones so that the patients can call yiu directly as well as the other rns, secretary, drs and anyone else. You get no lunch break,because it is spent with your phone going off the whole time, but are expected to clock out for 30 mins regardless. Do yourself and your career a favor and hold out for the better facilities!
Poor management, understaffed, low pay, no lunch, dirty and outdated facility
