      Pros

      New facility with up to date technology and equipment. Beautiful and big unit and rooms. Highly skilled, educated, driven, and friendly staff to work alongside. Teaching facility so it's research driven and doctors are available in the unit 24/7 weekends and holidays.

      Cons

      Takes 2 years to go from night shift to day shift. Teaching facility so the doctors are still learning, new class in July so nurses have to bring their A game.
