RUN, run like the wind! Tenet is offering these deals to new grads because no experienced RN in his or her right mind would want to work for them! There is no amount of money that would convince me to go back to a Tenet hospital.
I know it's hard to believe now, especially since you are saddled with debt, but there are considerations far more important than pay in your job search
. As a new grad, you need a solid orientation on which to base your future practice. You need an experienced staff to continue to teach and mentor you once orientation is complete. You need a safe and supportive work environment. You need an institution that supports high standards of professionalism and patient care. In my opinion, you will get none of these things from a Tenet facility.
The Philly area hospitals may not (yet) be experiencing the level of turmoil that the CA hospitals are, but it will come in due time. The upper level management and administration is the same for all areas of the country, and without quality leadership, all of Tenet's facilities will eventually sink to the same level.
