Great place to work if you can balance 12 hours/3 days at full time
Health Unit Coordinator/Patient Care Specialist (Current Employee), Amarillo, TXMay 20, 2014
Can be a very busy job, the nurses are great and work great with each other. The charge nurse always checks on everyone to make sure everyone is caught up or if they need help. I recommend it if you can balance a family and working 12 hour shifts 3 days/week sometimes more.

Depends on what your intention is but great for experience, not great for lifetime career
Emergency Room Nurse (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: high patient volume and trauma center, valuable experience gained
Cons: poor nurse patient ratios, poor equipment, breaks required yet no staff to cover. nurses tend to be mean to newer staff
Very poor nurse patient ratios, they are more concerned with making money than keeping things safe, providing needed equipment or getting staffing help. They will run their nurses ragged and they do not put patient care at the top of their priority list. They are more concerned with saving money then their patients. As far as experience goes, this will make a good nurse great, having to work with so little and do so much while dealing with the high patient volume. Not to mention this hospital will expand your bladder exponentially... The nurses are typically mean to the newer staff until they earn their trust and the required education does not focus on the skills that I actually found useful.
