      Large organizations and spend money on their technology. Their EMR system is easy to learn able you are able to complete your job efficiently and effectively. I worked with some caring and friendly nurses


      In my opinion, our unit and the hospital as a whole had many internal issues. Those issues affected employees’ mental health. Nurses are short staffed, overworked, and on a lower pay scale than other hospitals. Many stayed because of the name and it’s one of the only large hospital system in the area. It monopolize the area.

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
