Default best hospitals

I am interested in working in Las Vegas or surronding areas as a registered nurse. I was wondering what hospitals have the best reputations.

I personally like Mountain View the best. It has a good reputation, but isn't quite as busy as the other hospitals in town. I don't know...it just a very nice vibe too it. Very relaxed. I just like it there.

Then the Summerlin Hospital is in a really nice area, if living close to work if a priority for you, but it's typically known for being hell on earth, in terms of how busy it it.

Mountain View doesn't have a trauma center, so depending on what type of nurse you are that might be important. Summerlin is nice and once again, depending on what type of nurse you are it may or may not be an issue that the ER is very busy.

I work at the Cleveland Clinic on a tele/med-surg unit. Our unit is similar being on an ICU. I am interested in large teaching hospitals with trauma units.

There is only one...and it is a dozey. Try University Medical Center. The classical central city "we fix anything" and get all the bad stuff hospital.

The only place in town where I would go if actually deathly hurt. Others are more comfortable but UMC when the stuff hits the fan.

There are lesser trauma centers at Sunrise and St Rose on Eastern.

UMC is a teaching hospital. I have heard alot of good things about Mtn. View as well. I guess, though, it depends on what type of nursing you want to do. I was looking at a security job and UMC and Mtn. View a while back and I felt a better vibe at Mtn. View. Just my gut feeling, don't base you decisions off of that, but I did have a good feeling about that one.
