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
RN - CCU (Current Employee) – Skyline Medical Center – March 12, 2014
I start my day off at work by being assigned two patients. I then review their diagnostic test, lab work, and vital signs. Then I assess my patients for various aliments and disease processes. I usually go to do medication administration. I then will continue to monitor and reassess my patients throughout the day, going to tests, helping with procedures, and transferring them to where they need to go.
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.

I work the night shift for seven yrs. in the lab at the hospital My shift was responsible for drawing the whole hospital witch was call morning labs started work at 11:00 pm to 7:00 am, we covered the ED also so we had all ages we drew how to get blood from a turnip and was great at it I had patients requesting for me to draw they blood. the most enjoyable part was my shift worked as a team. the hardest part of the job was when someone would call out that would make us sometime have 2 whole floors and that is really hard on u the doctors would come around 5:00 am and they would be up set because their results were not in the computer we would still be out drawing.
we would have potlucks, and sometimes at night we would bring food and cook at night and we were a family

Staff nurse (Current Employee) – Trauma Critical Care – March 6, 2015
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.
