    Ashfost,
    Awesome I'm going to do ER sometime in the future, just wanted to get settled in first, I have enough excitement in SI for now. I'm on days for orientation then nights when I'm done orienting sometime in nov/dec. Good luck with everything and watch your back in the red zone.

    I volunteer in the ER at Grady. I am done with nursing school in May, then I might work in the ER.
    Hi - I'm currently in nursing school and have applied to volunteer at Grady. Can you share what you do as a volunteer in the ER? I was actually hoping to do some volunteering in their surgical services area, but I didn't see that as an option, so I chose ER as my first choice. Thanks for any information!

    Does Grady hire out-of-state new grads? I'd love to work there!

    When I called the recruiter she said you have to have your GA license just to apply there. So you can't even apply for a job unless you are licensed in GA.

    I am a new grad and RN licensed here in GA. I applied in Grady for a staff nurse position more than a week ago but I have not heard any reply yet. I checked it out on their website again; they are using a new employment application tool which is different from the one I used when I submitted my application. I am interested to work thru their nursing residency program.
    Do I need to call the nurse manager/recruiter to know the status of my application? How did you do your application process guys to get a job in grady?

    Hey there I did the same thing you did I applied for staff nurse positions as well...when I called up there in August they said they weren't taking new grads till December but I see there are still individuals that are getting hired regardless...I've been looking all summer and it's becoming so depressing!!! When I call up there now NO ONE answers their desk phones.

    I currently work at Grady on a med-surg unit. some say its one of the harder departments to work in because they are so understaffed. I get anywhere from 7-10patients. I would say a typical night is 7-8 patients and atypical is 6 or less and 9 or more but the last 3 nights i worked i have had 9 and 10. I went to grady straight out of school and the orientation is good but the learning experience as far as precepting really just depends who you are assigned to, if anyone. I was never assigned to one person. I have been there a year now and I am looking to transfer off medsurg or move to a different hospital. I also love/hate grady. I hate the way they treat their med surg nurses (can speak to other depts) but its such a good learning experience and I have excellent time management skills and they say once you can work at grady you can work anywhere, and other facilities looks at that experience as like a medal of honor since you work in such rough conditions with VERY sick patients. The medsurg patients i have, well they would probably be on step down units at other hospitals, most of them at least. Hope that helps!
    I am a new grad and licensed in Ga as well...I've been applying all summer to all the hospitals out there especially...I saw on one of your post you said you can tell one of the other users the easiest way to get hired....could you possibly be of some assistance I would greatly appreciate it
