How is it to work at Ochsner?

  1. 0
    I'll be taking my LPN boards in May '04 and I heard that Ochsner Foundation is a great place to work, especially for new nurses. Is that true? I would love to hear from a nurse who works there. Thanks

    I do not personally work there but I am currently in my second rotation there.
    They are high-tech, computers and all which makes things easier, particularly looking drugs up and stuff.
    The Pediatrics floor I am currently on is great, the nurses are very nice and helpful.
    Some nurses I talked to said that they work there because they like the unit but that unfortunately, the benefits might not be as good as some other hospitals. I don't know whether it is true or not, just passing it along.
    On average, each nurse had 4-5 patients.
    Not sure if this helps. Let me know if you have a specific question I might be able to answer to.

    I graduate from St. Louis Univ in May we are looking at moving back south. Not to be nosey but do you know what the new GN salary is at Ochsner and do they do student loan repayment? I have calls and emails out but I think everyone in HR must be on vacation for the holidays..no answers. Any info you could provide would be great.

    Everyone at school talk about different hospitals and no one wants to go to Ochsner because they say the salary and benefits suck compared to other hospital around the NO area. I have heard they pay $19 (as a new grad) and if their health benefits are the same as for a PCT, they are not that good. So far, Touro seems to be paying the most $23 and have a loan repaiement plan as well as ok health benefits. I think University downtown is the best as far as retirement (it is a state hospital after all) and a little bit more expensive health care...anyways I hope this help! Let me know if I can help in any other ways and good luck

    Just got hired there as a new grad. GN pay is $21/hr, not sure about other benefits as I don't go to fill out paperwork for a couple more weeks. The pay isn't the highest in the area, but I think they make up for it by being a teaching hospital, a magnet hospital, and a great place to work. I heard a rumor that they were going to be raising GN pay at the beginning of the year to be on par with other hospitals in the area. Hope that helps
