    Orlando Health is proposing a mid-level lay off and offering those people bedside positions. Their new grad program seems nonexistent at this point, and it's darn near impossible to get into the system without knowing someone.

    Take what is offered honestly. Florida Hospital has their new grad residency posted for Feb/March already.

    $21.50 starting pay, unsure about differentials

    Ratio is around 1:4 or 1:5 depending on which Florida Hospital and which unit. Some are as low as 1:3, because there are no techs. But the nurses are also BSN typically

    Both. They start the same. After your certification courses during residency they will pay $2/hr more I think. Something like that for BSN.

    But remember, they are really only hiring BSN.

    Also, Florida Hospital East is saying they are on a hiring freeze for GN. Other hospitals may follow suit based on budgets. I know OH is in lay off mode and may not have a residency program at all for 12-18months.

    I was quoted 22.83 from Fl Hospital South (Orlando) ED for BSN pay w/o diff included. OH quoted 22.05 no diff included. Friend was called for interview from OH but was cancelled during phone call bc she preferred peds. The recruiter gave her the number to Arnold Palmer and hung up. Sooooo.....it depends on which unit and campus for both orgs.

    I was hired at florida hospital in Oct as a new grad. It has been an enjoyable experience. I was accepted into an ICU program, so there's lots to remember and keep track of.

    Congrats Jaysof2 I just accepted a position at Fl hosp EDNIP program! Do you remember what the "premium differentials" were? I spoke with someone who works in the ED and they said it's an additional premium to "normal premiums" given to those in permanent acute care positions. Other posts on here discuss a 35% shift diff on med surge floors. What's your take/experience?

    I got offered a GN position at Florida Hospital (PCU unit) - which I declined.
    I have a ASN and I was offered $21.87.
    Raised to $22.53 after I finish my BSN.
    Differential 12% 3p-11p ; 15% 11p-7a ; 13% weekend and 35% nights.

    I accepted an offer to work at Orlando Health (ICU unit)
    GN starting pay with an ASN $21.90
    Will raise to 22.50 after BSN
    Only differential offered were
    8.75 nights and 3.20 weekends

    I start the GN program the first week of February and some of my other GN classmates start on
    the next round which is on April.

    So does this imply that there is another differential in addition to this?

    Curious, why did you decline?
