    I have been working at JHH for about a year now, and there are some serious pros and cons. First of all you have to look at what neighborhood you are working in. Its not the best. The parking IS expensive, I pay 68 dollars a month now, and they are inceasing it by another 10. This is also because I am a bedside nurse, If I was not a PACE beside nurse I would be paying close to 140 to park, and let me just say when the new section of the hospital opens there will be very little parking. Johns Hopkins does open many wonderful doors to furthering your career, and right now it is a terrible economy and I was lucky when I was a new grad to be hired. They have a excellent new grad program which helped alot. The work week here is expected to be 40 hours which can be a pain if you were used to being a CNA like I was at another hospital and only working 36. Some units do self scheduling while others do not. There is no extra money for working holidays because it is built into the pay. I find the pay very fair in comparison to other local hospitals. However It was hard for me to adjust from a county hospital to a inner city hospital.I have dealt with extremly violent patients, and probably know more now about gangs and inner city workings than I ever thought that I would. There are some other issues I have had and honestly I think it just may be my unit and not the hospital as a whole. Hope this helps.

    As one of the other posters said, Bayview is VERY different from JHH--as are all the other facilities in the Hopkins systems. I came from Bayview, and when I left there about a year ago, I was making $28 and some change as a full time day shift nurse. When I did weekend option days, I was making $31 an hour. Most of the units at Bayview you can work either straight days or straight nights, and you are hourly, not salaried...so it's 36 hours per week--all 12 hour shifts, and anything over 40 hours is paid at time and half. They do have weekend option day and weekend option nights, and I think the differential for weekend option nights is about $9 more than your base salary. I can't remember what new grad pay was...but it couldn't have been much less than $28, because I had only been a nurse for 3 years when I left. There are other hospitals that pay better in the area--but the benefits that all the Hopkins hospitals offer are superior to that of what you will get anywhere else, and you are really working for the name...

    They are always hiring - they have between 5 to 50 new nurses every 2 months. I have only known 1 person to get the specialty floor they wanted. Most of the ICU/peds floors want 1 year of experience (student nursing doesn't count). They always have open spots on the website. I applied for several spots. The recruiter called and connected me to medical floors that were short on nurses. Maryland is a compact license state - California is not. You would have to apply in Maryland. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/emplo..._hospital.html

    I wouldn't recommend applying for the other Johns Hopkins affiliated hospitals if you are looking to get brownie points on your resume.

    Contact the Maryland Board of Nursing for details. It doesn't look like you would have to take the NCLEX again - MBON would just need to verify your NCLEX scores and application. http://www.mbon.org/main.php?v=norm&...dorsement.html

    John's Hopkins is one of the best hospitals to work at especially as a new grad. You will see a lot of therapies (medicine and holistic) that you won't see for a few years elsewhere. You will also see medical conditions rarely seen elsewhere - patients are sent from all over the world to be treated here. The hospital has lots of research for nurses and doctors. Everything is protocol driven. It's not a bad thing as it is a "standard" for what conditions to report and how to set up equipment. It is a culture shock for those use to peaceful rural areas. There is a lot of room to grow here and many opportunities for nursing.

    They don't have listings for "new grad nurses" nor do they have many internships. They are listed as "nurse clinician." Some list entry level (usually medicine floors). If you see a specialty you are dying to work in don't hesitate to apply if it it mentions 1 year required. Jobs are listed weekly so check often. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/nursi...ess/index.html

    I would guess 4-6 weeks - most nursing boards take that long.

    Maryland BON told me 6-8 weeks. Beware, they dont answer phones or return calls. I went in person, got my form and they have a mini mall in the plaza so the same day: I got my passport size photo, finger prints and money order payment.

    If you are a new nurse there is no better start to your career than Hopkins. I work at the bayview campus and have learned so much. benefits are very good and reasonable. You don't make as much money working at hopkins than you do working somewhere else but its the name you are getting too. There is not much way to move up and make more money per hour at hopkins as they have scheduled % raises which are pitiful. If I wanted to make more money I would have to take my experience and go somewhere else. I would probably make 3 or 5 more dollars an hour right now if I moved and it will take me 5 years to get that at hopkins, or longer. Its kind of a drag but you can't be choosy in this economy. Bayview is not on the PACE system and you work 36 hrs a week and time and a half after 40 hrs and get paid differentials for weekends and nights and for float pool. Good luck!

    I'm glad you are happy and feel you are getting a good learning experience but I find it offensive that Hopkins thinks their "name" counts as financial compensation. Sorry but losing $5 an hour is $10,000 a year. Thanks but no thanks.
