I will be registering for my summer and fall clinicals soon. I would love to hear some advice from current nurses about which clinical rotation may be *most* helpful both from a learning/hands on perspective and
on my resume for jobs once I graduate.
If you feel like clinical rotations in school don't matter as much, please let me know. I am not really sure exactly what employers are looking for in entry level nurses!
I will most likely apply for jobs outside of MD in large (very competitive) cities, so have some thoughts about JHH being a bigger "name" on my CV. I know this will probably spark a big debate, however I know in California they care less about UM but JHH is known and respected everywhere. I do
value experience over a name, but also need to get my foot in the door once I graduate.
[PS: I do not
attend Hopkins so I'm only talking about clinicals]
Here are my options:
Bayview, Franklin Square, Sinai, UMMS, JHH
Children's, JHH, Mt. Washington Pediatric, Sinai
UMMS, JHH, Sheppard Pratt (Ellicott City), Sheppard Pratt (Towson)
