New York Presbyterian? new grad program?

  1. 0
    I'll be graduating in December (I can barely believe it) and plan on moving back to NYC (currently in Nashville). Hoping someone wouldn't mind taking the time to answer a bunch of questions...

    Heard a little bit about NYP, anyone been in their grad RN internship program? How long does it last? Do you have to sign a contract as a new grad? Do they offer tuition repayment? Do you get to choose the area you want? Is there a standard starting hourly rate for new BSN's? This is a long shot but..any housing assistance?

    Thank you so much!!!!!!

    1 year program...not for all specialties...they are pushing the PICU, ED and (I think) the OR. It is possible to do it in another specialty (I work in peds heme/onc and we have an intern, and they usually dont do them there). You do 6 months in two other specialties (ie ED and heme/onc), and then the last 6 months in the place you'll stay in. It's full salary (at least 60,000) and benefits, and day shift (afterwards you go to the shift you're needed on). Im not sure about when tuition reimbusement kicks in, but it's pretty good once it does. As far as housing, there are so many rumors going on: I've heard anywhere from 6 months to 3 yrs. There's a waiting list for hospital housing which I've heard is pretty cheap. I've also heard people out of state are supposed to have priority, and some have gotten screwed, so be careful. Also, there's no commitment in writing, but they 'expect you' to give them three yrs back, but you don't sign anything.

    I REALLY appreciate all this info. Are there 12 hr shifts only? That's what I hope for. I wonder how to find out about hospital housing or how to apply as a new grad for an internship program. Thanks again!

    I can try to find out for you. One of the interns was telling me there is a specific person she dealt with, other than the nurse recruiter. I'm working tomorrow, so I'll see if any of the interns are there.

    Yes, it's 12hr shifts. I would just be very cautious about the housing. A co-worker of mine relocated into the city, from Long Island. She did not go through hospital housing, and she got something really quick. It also depends on where you want to loive. Columbia is not in the nicest area, but she is in a building where other nurses and hospital staff live. Cornell is in a much nicer area. I also heard you can get on their hospital's housing list (which I'm sure is longer). You might want to have something lined up, while you wait on the list.

    Hi There!

    I graduated in December last year and started working at NYP-Cornell several months ago. While I am not familiar about any new grad internships I do know something about the housing from first-hand experience. I was also out-of-state and was able to find last minute hospital housing pretty effortlessly. In fact, I had several options to choose from (most of them really nice). From what my recruiter told me, it's a lot easier to get housing during the early part of the year (Jan-Apr) then in June so I would tell you not to worry too much. I can't speak for Columbia. I wasn't aware they had housing options.

    If you decide against any of the new grad internship programs, NYP has a great orientation program for their other units (eg Critical Care, L &D). Depending on your specialty, orientation can last anywhere from 12-16 weeks. Of course, that is no joke either with all the exams they throw your way but it's worth it and you will learn A LOT.

    Good luck with whatever you decide. Oh yeah, definately study for the pharm exam. It's not that hard but you WILL need to do some studying.

    Cheers,

    Alem

    Hi! I'm having trouble finding someone to speak with. When I called the number on the website, I was told to apply online. However, when I applied online, I got an email saying I did not have enough experience. I am a new graduate, from a BSN program, and I have my NYS license. Is it this hard to contact someone to meet with me? Have others had this much trouble? I am getting discouraged.

    Call the recruitment office, or go in and ask for an appointment with the nursing recruiter. PM me if you want the name of the MSCHONY nursing recruiter. (If you want to do peds/NICU/PICU) The tuition reimbursement starts after 6 months, and right now is a minimum of 10k a year with an agreement t stay employed for 6 months after your check is cut. Pay for new grads starts at 68k, add on for BSN, nights, experience, certification. 12 hour shifts, work every other weekend. We just hired a TON of new grads in NICU, where I work. I know PICU and PCICU are always hiring new grads. Best of luck!

    We don't have a NICU internship, though, as far as I know - PICU, PCICU, and peds Onc do, though. Adults has a few as well.
