MGH is offering new grad ICU internship for $11.44 an hour? - Page 35Register Today!
- Mar 6, '12 by Carrig RNThat's a ridiculous statement. We are a diverse group ranging in age from 20s-40s. The fact that most new graduate nurses are young seems to have escaped your attention. And in fact we have several graduates who are from other countries. Your comment is just plain ignorant.
- Mar 6, '12 by rn/writerThanks for the update, Carrig RN. Sounds like your six months of sacrifice will pay off for many years to come.

- Mar 22, '12 by MissM.RNHi everyone,
Does anyone know if MGH is offering the critical care residency again, or any type of new grad program? It seems like there aren't many new-grad programs in Boston, but I could be wrong. Any/all info will be appreciated, Thanks!
- Mar 22, '12 by Carrig RNI haven't heard anything about it. Most of the ICUs are fully staffed right now except our MICU but they just hired a bunch of people. I don't see anything about them opening another residency for the new graduating class but if I hear anything I will post it here.
- Mar 25, '12 by PediLove2147Carrig RN, you said the 30 or so of you that made it through the program - how many started?
- Mar 26, '12 by Carrig RNThere were 35 or 36 that started in the ICU program.
- May 25, '12 by arl6Carrig RN,I am so happy to read that someone truly benefitted from this program! I would love to hear more about your experience in detail. There was a program offered this spring for May 2012 graduates, but it was only listed to internal workers. On may 22, it was posted externally on the MGH website and I applied! The job description stated that all applicants must have experience in an ICU either as a CNA or in a senior practicum (which I did). From the description, it sounds incredibly supportive to the nurses going through this transition. I LOVED my clinical experiences at MGH (medsurg 1/2) and would be so honored and privileged to be a part of their talented and caring nursing team. I am new to this site, and don't really know how to go about communicating with a single person. But, any help/advice/stories/experiences you could share with me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

New to the site and stumbled upon this topic and wanted to chime in. I was accepted into the 2012 cohort as one of the RN "students" who will begin in a few short weeks on August 27th. Each ICU accepted one new graduate who was hired directly to their specific unit (40hrs w/benefits) and will precept there while attending the CCRN classes once a week for six months. As you have read here, the salary for the first six months is rather low (Now $11.67). However, we were all hired as new grads into ICUs at the #1 hospital in the world as salaried RNs with benefits/ classroom time/ training and our salaries jump up to above the national average after those six months. It is not 100% ideal but it is a MUCH better deal than most new grads who are facing unemployment for the forseeable future and will most likely get jobs in places far less desireable. I would be more than happy to answer any questions that any of you might have about the program before/during/after! Really excited for the opportunity and I am excited to have my first post to Allnurses!Last edit by MAnewgrad2012 on Aug 11, '12
