I am a new grad nurse and got a job offer from OLOL. I am from out of state and I really need some good opinion on whether I should accept this offer and begin my RN career there. I understand that the new grad job market is very tough now so I feel blessed to have this opportunity. But I really don't know a lot about this hospital (ie. are nurses happy/satisfied, work atmosphere, teamwork, supporting management?
these are what I cared the most & I heard the turnover rate is high
I am surprised that this offer came so quickly. I applied for the RN resident position about 2 weeks ago, only had a phone interview with the manager + couple nursing staff on the unit (it's kinda unusual that they don't do face to face interview, and I didn't get a chance to see the unit, which I really want to.....). I was told few days later that I got the job. Now, it's time to decide. I really need some advises & if anyone has any input or heard anything about this hospital? I also need some suggestions on Baton Rouge's safe neighborhood, if I do accept the offer, I will need to hunt for housing. Please, any comments would be so appreciated!!! Thank you
