    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?

    These are the numbers given to me by HR.
    I'm sorry, I don't understand your question as to what am I implying... : )

    Reason I declined FH?
    Fl hosp information forms that were given to me read:
    Graduate (GN) nurse: $13,500 contract
    meaning I would have to reimburse FH that amount if I did not complete contract

    Orlando Health also has a 2yr contract but the amount was a small fraction.
    Yes, I plan on working at any place for 2years plus
    however, I did not feel comfortable signing a contract like
    especially since I had the option to opt for either place.

    I have been a tech for both hospital within the last year,
    and I got to tell you they are both great places to work for!

    Understandable. A lot of people shy away after seeing the contract. Now I wonder what the turnover rate is. Hmmmm

    Congrats on your position! I did the opposite from you bc I wanted ER and ORMC wasn't staffing that anymore.

    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.
    Hello,
    I intend to apply to FH ICU program. I graduate in May. Any words of advice? Additionally, do you have any idea of when FH will begin accepting applications for June/July?
    Thanks

    Florida hospital really wants BSNs UNLESS you went to their nursing program Adventist University. They are wanting to have the 80%nurses BSN to work towards being Magnet. I took a position with Orlando Health in their GN residency program I start in April. It's my experience with finding a job, OH is more accepting of new grads the FH. If you look up FH nurse residency program there are NO positions open except Senior Nurse Tech. I would encourage everyone to get their BSN because its hard enough finding a job as a new nurse, with both of these major hospitals wanting their Magnet status, they are wanting 80% nurse staff to hold BSNs.

    Has anyone participated in the Florida Hospital EDNIP program? I have an interview for this in a few weeks with the Educator in charge of this program (I already had an interview with the ED Nurse Manager) and was wondering what to expect?

    Are you BSN or associates? And do you know if any associate degree nurses were hired for the new grad position? I applied and am waiting a response. I have an associates, bachelors currently in progress. Thanks
