The OR staff is incredibly divided into Surg Techs/First Assists vs. RN's. This may in part be to the organizations large disparity in career advancement for non RN staff. However, the OR culture is depressing, unsupportive, and sometime downright awful. It's a horrible environment to work full-time. It may be palatable part-time. Although, the organizations pay scale and requirements for RN advancement are grossly disconnected. Too much work for too little compensation, in comparison to any other medical facility south of it's main location. The administration refuses to see their competition, only comparing their pay grades to known low paying facilities. If it's not too far, don't waist your time. Just go to any of the 4 other hospitals along 270!
It's close if you live in Frederick
