    What have you done to research hospitals before starting a new job? Do you go online and try to find FAQs?

    Or check out hospital reviews?

    I ask current employees that I know from that hospital, specifically fellow nurses whom I can trust. I ask about compensation, benefits, leadership, co-workers, job stability, etc. Before I transfer to another hospital, I make sure that I am in the right hands, or should I say better hands.

    While I was a student CNA performing my hospital clinicals I was also evaluating whether the hospital and I were a good fit. Listening, watching, talking to current workers, understanding if the hospital has a nurses union (closed or open-shop) are all factors for consideration.

    Bottom line, no all employers are worthy of your devotion and loyalty–it’s a two-way-street.

    Still if you desperately need the work, take the plunge, if it doesn’t work out, just start looking for a new position while working and then, while working, plan your exit strategy.

    God Speed.
