Great place to learn and grow
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – West Columbia, SC – November 24, 2018
Started off as a tech while in Nursing school and transitioned to the floor as a nurse. I work at night - which can be stressful, but the folks I work with are phenomenal! I have learned even more since graduating from my amazing co-workers.
Compared to other hospitals, we have good technology, use EPIC, and have pretty good support. I would say that the pay needs a HUGE upgrade considering the complexity of the patients and the patient load. (6:1) It's also nice that the cafe is open to night shift employees.
I find that the most enjoyable part of the job is just what I do on a day to day basis - interact and care for patients and their families and have a wonderful time learning from my co-workers. My manager is ok. She's very numbers driven and sometimes I think she forgets what it's like to actually work on the floor. She also tends to overlook night shift when having special events and parties.
Great co-workers, opportunities to learn, challenges
sometimes no break. Management sometimes forgets night shift exists
