    next monday, i am starting an orientation in the north shore open heart icu. i was so impressed by north shore hospital. what a beautiful facility?

    stony brook makes you work a year in cardiology before you can work in the icu. plus the starting salary at stony brook is significantly lower than other local hospitals. the benefits are tremendous at stony brook.



    Quote from nurse educate
    take note of where most of long island's nurses work- they travel many miles to get to north shore, lij and the like.
    thats not true!!

    Just a bit

    Things have changed in three years time. There are many more opportunities for new grads now.

    It is interesting that this thread was revived. I have been working at North Shore for the past three years, but I just accepted a position at Stony Brook. I still really like North Shore. The reason that I am changing is because I recently moved, and Stony Brook is much closer to my new house.

    When I interviewed three years ago, the salary at Stony Brook was $6000.00 less. Now the salaries are the same. I was also very impressed with the retirement benefits at Stony Brook.

    Yes, DC2RN, the retirement benefits are second to none. I knew you would be impressed. Health insurance includes med/dental/vision. Ask your nurse recruitment about the ICU residency program, where you rotate first into the different ICUs (- just to prove that you wont have to work cardiology before landing an ICU position.) by the way, what ICU are you applying for?
