I would recommend Skyline just not to work on the 3rd floor Rehab because they are always under staffed and the nurse treat the tech like dogs. Management did not keep the employees busy in their office all the other employees knew one another busy.
This was my favorite place to work. Not only was the department but upper management was wonderful. Our director kept everyone involved and informed at all times. He was very compassionate and truly cared about his staff. We have management meeting with all department heads that he was over and he wanted us to be aware of things going on and keep us updated with past, present, and future updates. I miss my job there and would recommend this place to anyone to work or to be a patient.
Administration was very much involved in the day to day components. There would be plenty of times admin would come down and help take admitted patients to their rooms when the ER would be extremely busy. Great Teamwork! Great experience in getting nursing skills and knowledge. Open communication. They have their own education department and offered almost any type of certification! Food was great with inexpensive pricing. Although, I did wish the cafeteria stay open later. Very busy and fast paced ER. Many opportunities for advancement!
Manager picks her favorites. Gets her way about who works there, one way or another. If you need anything like help with a family issue, she'll help if she wants you to stay. Coworkers are amazing. Patient load is fine. New Trauma Center provides great experience. Team work in trauma is mostly smooth.
Do NOT work in x ray. Atleast until current lead is gone. There is no opportunity for advancement. Cannot even mention the word CT or specials. Tense atmosphere in x ray because everyone talks so bad about everyone. The supervisor/lead is the main one doing it and almost encourages it. No support from upper mangement.
The CT department is much better however. Good group there. Very busy, but good supportive supervisor.
Absolutely NO support from upper management and HR
Best part about my job is the coworkers a great. There is a real sense of teamwork on the floor with every nurse supporting each other and doing their best to make it through the shift and provide for each patient to the best that we can. The hardest part about the job currently is all the new changes and charting that are taking place hospital wide. A typical day includes getting patients ready for procedures and testing, reviewing labs and orders and then going back and reviewing physicians orders and daily notes and addressing any needs that arise with each patient. Afternoon is typically spend discharging and admitting new patients.

Skyline has an excellent staff of nurses. They work well together,and are a very cohesive and supportive team. The work is frequently fast paced, and frenetic in it's intensity. There seems rarely a night that something isn't going on, and an excellent opportunity to learn about trauma nursing.
Staff Nurse Neurological Intensive Care (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 10, 2014
Love ICU bedside care. I enjoyed the critical thinking involved in caring for the critically ill neuro patient. On most nights was charge nurse which allowed me to tap into my managerial background all the while bringing me back to what I truly love. Caring for the ill and dying.
