I have been working at Queen of the Valley Medical Center part-time (More than a year)
Free, convenient parking,lovely area with small town feel, took into account my schedule preferences, had enough supplies, acuity of pts fairly low (no open heart/cath lab, trauma level), pt's were overall sweet - don't act entitled, co-workers were courteous, usually helpful, seem like just good people.
MEDITECH! Physicians seem patriarchal, rude, not my favorite, floated every shift, sometimes twice a shift (floated within 2 hours of beginning shift). A large majority of my sweet patients did not speak the same language as I, which is a bit of a challenge, but they were patient with me. Really helps if you are bilingual here (would like to learn, but takes time).
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Queen of the Valley Medical Center (Napa, CA) in March 2016.
I am a travel nurse. The phone interview was quick and to the point. It took perhaps 10 minutes to complete. The manager was polite and informative. The interview was quick and easy.
