Pros: plenty of overtime opportunities, helpful co-workers, great pay
Cons: very busy, sometimes understaffed
I worked here as an RN for a little less than a year on the Telemetry/Cardiac floor and loved it! It was a very busy floor, with an average nurse:patient ratio of 1:6. My co-workers were all very nice and extremely helpful in each situation I found myself in. They were all willing to stop what they were doing to help their fellow co-workers in any way possible. I worked fulltime; however, I would get called every night I was off to come in to work... AKA, there is plenty of opportunity for overtime. This floor is always needing help. There are 30 beds on this unit, and they stayed full 90% of the time. If I was able to return to Hattiesburg to work here again, I definitely would do so!
