I'm curious to know if you become employed with Florida Hospital is it easy to move around within the hospital? As in transferring to a different type of unit?... Read More
- 1Apr 21, '11 by BeMurphyQuote from PreepsOk thanks for the info. But is the base pay similar-you said $22.67 at Fl Hosp-what is the day shift rate at ORMC?
Yeah I know that neuro floor, and they had techs or still do have but phasing out? and that would be a nightmare without a tech.
But honestly I would rather have 4 patients without techs than 6 with a tech. 6 patients is too many IMO.
Good luck to you!
I just accepted a job with FL hospital as a new grad BSN and base pay for GN is 22.08 (12 hours), 15% differential for nights, and 13% for weekends. After orientation differentials for nights go to 35%. PCU neuro has techs and 4:1 to 5:1 ratio.
- 0Aug 8, '11 by SpelaDI just got a call from Healthcare support staffing about a position at FL hospital. It's only for 3 months, working non stop 7a-7p, not too many days off; i'd be working with physicians, more or less on a computer. We'll see if they call me back.
Does anyone need recruiters number? They still need like 30 nurses - so I was told.
- 0Aug 10, '11 by myoglobinYou could come to HCA in Kissimmee! PRN Pay (meaning no benefits) is about $38.50 for nights and about $42.00 on weekends. However, your med/surgical ratio is 7 to 1 with only one tech for about 30 patients. On the PCU/IMCU the ratio is 6/1 (nights maybe less on days not sure) with one to two techs for about 30 patients. If you work in the cardiac tower (floors 3,4, and 5) the ratio drops back to five to one (think PCU, but an acuity which is less than the PCU/IMCU floor on average) with two techs for about 25 patients (give or take). The pay with benefits is pretty comparable to ORMC or Florida Hospital. I think that you will find that the pay is very compariable both at ORMC and Florida Hospital once you are out of orientation. Note these figures are for an RN with about one to two years of experience, but I don't think that the numbers change until you get more than three years of experience (thus they would apply to even a new grad).
Also one of the big DOWSIDES of Florida Hospital is that they require that you show proof of health insurance (say through a spouse) or you must take the benefitted position. Speaking personally the pay cut from a benefitted position would mean I couldn't afford to pay my bills without working overtime. I would rather take my chances and go without health insurance (besides unless they Baker Acted me I wouldn't go to the doctor or ER anyway even if I DID have a heart attack).Last edit by myoglobin on Aug 10, '11 : Reason: Incomplete
- 1Sep 20, '11 by NurseLove88I was offered a position at ORMC and FH
ORMC starts at 22.20 for BSN grads and FH offers 22.08 for BSN grads...the night differentials are better at ORMC. I still am not sure which job I will take..I have been hearing a lot of negatives thoughts about FH and plus the contract is pushing me away due to the fact that I am young and not sure if I want to live in Orlando for the next 2 years..but I am still weighing my options
