Hi! I would like to know if anyone has worked at Hopkins in the recent past or is currently working there now. What are the pros and cons? The bene's look great. I work in a rural setting now about 50 miles away. I have worked in the inner city (in a commmunity teaching hospital) earlier in my career. I just worry that the pace would be very hectic, but yet it looks exciting and the academic atmosphere is rather appealing. I am interested in OB. I would be interested in weekend option if at all possible. It's a big decision, but I would like to go back to school and I feel like this type of environment might foster my goals. Also I see that they offer tuition re-imbursement for dependents. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
sorry helping folks is never a con to me. the difference in the needs of the people and pace of the work is a little daunting(it's quite slow here). as i said i worked in balto. city(not at jh though) before so that's not really an issue. after being away from the balto. area for almost 7 years, i guess, the real issue is the long drive. i am really looking for the inside scoop from someone who has worked there recently. like do they treat their nurses well? do they have a lot of pulling and short-staffing? how are the dr's and other nurses to deal with? what are the opportunities to avance, etc.?
