    Well speaking only from experience as a patient and NYC resident, Methodist has a very good reputation for patient care and Maimonides does not.

    i believe NYM offers a good length orientation for a med-surg floor. the problem i think with NYM is the patient ratio. between 10-13 patients. i am on a floor that carries 10-1 max. don't know if i am lucky or not. anyhow, pay for a night rn is about 68,000 with an a.a.s. with a b.s.n. add $750 extra.
    I heard that the new NYSNA contract at Methodist means the new nurse-patient ratio should be no higher than 1:8...Is this true? Thanks.

    I am working in Labor and Delivery at Lutheran and they are hiring and they accept new grads into speciality areas. My frined is the niurse manager for SICU. They have a good orintation and not a high turnover. I have been a RN for about 10 years now and I have went to NYM and Maimodes and I would reccomend Lutheran.

    Thanks Kim,
    Why did you like Lutheran more than Methodist? I went for an interview at Methodist and the place is gorgeous and the patient records--including medication administration records--are computerized...Also, their pay for night shift is MORE than Sloan-Kettering night shift and Lenox Hill night shift; Methodist also makes contributions to the nurse Pension Plan whereas Sloan-Kettering does not.....Starting salary for a new grad BSN night shift is $71,702! Plus, it's in pretty Park Slope...

    NYM does hire AAS, but they have a very competitive selection. I am a nurse extern as well and have been told thats huge for your experience level.

    I know Maimonidies pretty well. My mom works there and alot of my good friends work there as nurses in the NICU and PICU. There is a large turnover, depending on the floor. The peds and L&D are awesome. Med-Surg not so hot.. and from my own experience... I was pregnant with twins and was constantly in the hospital for PTL. The L&D staff was awesome. The ante-pardum floor was ok.. but the post-pardum floor was basically the worst place I have ever been. It felt like I was in 3 diff hospitals.

    But I was talking to one of my friends and they are floating people all over the place. And they are offering floats and agency temp nurses $68 an hour. So... it depends on what youre looking for. If you are looking to be happy and stay in one spot, I would pick NYM. If you like floating around and looking to make $$, Maimonidies should be an option. Good luck!

    Wow that is great, but I have AAS degree and I applied to both of these hospitals and they did not call me, guess is because I do not have any experience.

    I am also very curious about these Brooklyn hospitals. I'm actually relocating from California to Brooklyn area. Can anyone tell me what hospitals they would suggest and any other info I might need. Would you say there are many RN jobs at these hospitals? I would really appreciate it.

    i work at NYM its a pretty good hospital to work for in my oppinion. most of the staff is very helpfull to the new nurses and they do their best to help them go though the transition of orientation to bein on our own. its no easy job there though because they have a shortage of nurses in the hospital on average the nurses have 8 to 10 pts; but we still manage. the hospital is computerized so charting is done on the computer and the MAR is also on the computer. on the other hospitals i dont know much about, but this is what i have to say about NYM.
