Fast-paced, great coworkers
Truly a team effort! The job was fast-paced, and at times, hectic, but the unit nurses and PCTs always came together and handled any situation that arose. Would work there again if I lived in Fort Walton Beach. Charge nurses were great and helped as much as possible.
Pros
Co-workers, benefits
Cons
Stressful at times, long hours

Worst experience in work place
Staff are more into themselves. For example, They have an attitude of being there just for the paycheck. No show of passion and concern . Most staff are rude and lack of concern. One staff made a statement of why they keep on hiring travelers when they can even paid their permanent staffs. The staff have no patience what so ever. The worst traveling assignment ever.

Very busy ER, supportive leadership, many growth opportunities
As a trauma center there is always a large pot of knowledge awaiting your arrival. There's options of which areas you want to work and just within the ED many aspects to give you a wide variety of skills and requirements.

FWBMC was worth the hour drive
It was adequately staffed. We had adequate supplies. Pay wasn't the best but it was fair for the area. Some co-workers were excellent and cared about the quality of their work.

Overall good work environment, lots of changes and new staff turn-over because of construction
Overall good work environment, lots of changes and new staff turn-over because of construction. Management did not focus on employee growth. Some of the education classes are not effective.

Wouldn’t recommend
Pay is competitive but they cut your hours to make hours for new people every month. A lot of turn over and most nursing staff is travel because of the work environment.

Great Job!
As long as you a hard worker you are guaranteed hours even overtime. This job will take a lot out of you but if you at least work 100 hours every pay period your checks will guarantee be over 1000 every time.

Traveler Central
Culture is so poor they rely very heavily on travelers. One shift we had 9 travelers out of 12 nurses. Management is out of touch with the staff. Mind set of staff is poor.

You are dispensable
It’s a great place to work if you’re a travel nurse, but don’t expect respect or fair treatment for being a hard working and caring employee. I’ve even had friends in respectable positions for 25+ years bullied out of their positions or out of the facility completely by new management taking over floors/units.
It’s also a great place to start if you’re a new grad as they prefer obedience over experience.

Alot of travel nurses here
Alot of travel nurses working in this hospital and running the ER. Many experienced nurses dont appear to stay. Changes in administration caused some scary employee situations which led to quitting and was months have before the administration was dealt with.
Pros
Education
Cons
Travel nurses running the ER
