I'm a CNA at Cooper now (and I have had clinical rotations here in nursing school), and my husband is an RN, and we both love it. You really learn a lot here. Cooper's nurses are union, and they just finished their contract negotiations (which were pretty decent). Pay is good with night and weekend differentials. It's really nice always having a resident/fellow/attending on the floor if needed. ICU, Trauma, and Oncology are the floors that seem to have the best environments that I've seen for workers, though I have yet to see a "bad" area. You will work your butt off here, though. The acuity level at Cooper is going to be much higher than what you'll find at other hospitals in SJ. Also, it's in Camden, so you need to make sure you know exactly how to get to and from the hospital - a wrong turn, even a block or two away, is a bad thing. It's a great hospital though where you learn a lot.
