Located on the Upper East Side near Central Park, this hospital has been recognized as one of “America’s Best Hospitals” for nine consecutive years by U.S. News. Along with being known as one of the best hospitals in terms of quality of patient care and innovative techniques, New York-Presbyterian provides affordable housing and parking to its employees. The hospital owns and leases more than 1,700 apartments in Manhattan, many within walking distance of the hospital.
For those who enjoy a little sunny weather when they aren’t working at one of the top hospitals in the country, Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center is a perfect place to be a nurse. One interesting perk: while nurses who have children aren’t working on some of the most demanding and unique cases around, they can enjoy their free time with a list of UCLA students available to babysit.
Are You At Risk for Burnout?
Another teaching hospital in California, UCSF Medical Center isn’t just one of the best hospitals in the U.S., it’s also known for having one of the top nursing schools in the country. Located close to Golden Gate Park, UCSF Medical Center is in a beautiful location and has a strong partnership with the UCSF School of Nursing, which offers a reduction in tuition to nurses pursuing a masters or doctoral degree. Benefits include a flexible scheduling system and a minimum of three weeks of vacation per year, along with 13 paid holidays.
Named as a top hospital by U.S. News since 1993 and a Magnet hospital for excellence in nursing care since 1994, UW Medical Center is a great hospital for patients and nurses alike. Located in the beautiful area between Lake Washington and Lake Union, this hospital offers its staff many perks that come from being a part of UW, including membership at UW athletic facilities, and discounts on events like local art shows and sporting events.
