I'm a newbie, and I want to say how thankful I am for allnurses.com, that we nurses can communicate, and learn from each other through this forum.
I just want to ask for some insights from those who works or have worked at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ. How is the preceptorship? How many weeks do they give for orientation in Med-Surg? What is their nurse-patient ratio in med-surg? How is the hospital overall? I would really, really appreciate your insight.
