    I have been told that Hopkins is more doctor-oriented and follows a more medical model rather than a nursing model of patient care. I remember one of my instructors complaining that the head of nursing at Hopkins is a doctor rather than a nurse. That might be something to look into.

    I'm at UMD, and I'm very pleased so far.
    The VP of Nursing & Patient Care Services at JHH, Karen Haller is a doctor - of nursing.

    I work there, and love it - warts and all. I think the money is competitive, and the benefits first rate.

    Besides, it's not all about the money.

    PM me with questions. I'm not a recruiter and will try to give unvarnished answers.

    I've never talked to her but the lady answering the phone at her office (Diane I think?) is awesome! I'm an ISU distance student and have been trying to chase down a contact to arrange clinicals and she pointed me straight to the woman I needed and was like "If you need more help call me back!"! Of course, now getting ahold of the lady she referred me to is becoming a challenge but that's ok, I like challenges and I have til January to get these arrangements made. lol! Any suggestions are welcome though!

    So how difficult is it for a new grad to get an ICU job there? Their new grad program seems fabulous!

    Hi I don't think it will be too hard. I just got a job down there on one of there hem/onc units and there were all so great so just be persistant and they will call you back

    Good luck!
