    If you live in AZ, you choose how much state taxes are held out of your check, federal taxes depends on dependents and marital status. Personally, I have enough state taxes held so that I don't have to pay in at the end of the year, I'm single with 0 dependents. So, they hold about 33% from that figure. So people who think you make such great money really don't have a clue. And it doesn't pay to work much overtime unless you're getting other perks along with it. So don't cry for too long on this one.

    Hi -- I am new to this forum, but I have worked for Memorial Sloan Kettering for 6 years now (not as a nurse for all 6 though). I was in research and worked my way through nursing school with Memorial's help. I started a year ago as a nurse.

    Some may say I am biased, however, that is not true. I interviewed at Mt. Siani, Cornell, and Columbia University. I even accepted a position at Cornell. I didnt take the Cornell job because of what I found out afterwards...not such a hot place to work at.

    I cam back to Memorial within two weeks and I haven't regretted my decision. It is a great instition to grow and learn -- that is big for them. They truly support their nurses. I work on a busy unit, however, the nursing staff is very supportive and someone is always there if you need help, have a problem, etc.

    Benefits are good too!

    i was just interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering where they are nonunion and are starting new grads at 70,000 plus 10% nights differential.

    question is, is this a good hospital to work at, especially for a new nurse?

    It actually is a decent salary. I was there only a few weeks when the raise went into effect. I was making way less and I am seeing the money come in. I used to live check to check and now I am much more comfortable. I am still on days...havent even had night diff yet
    :spin:

    that's a pretty decent salary. What I have noticed is that Cancer hospitals pay a lot better than regular hospitals...Good luck to you.

    MSKCC is a non-profit hospital, therefore they are not able to contribute/match a 401K. Instead you have a 403B plan instead. Yes it is your own $$, however, that alone does not make it a bad hospital to work at. It is one of the better instutions that harbors learning and supports its nurses.

    MSKCC has never been a unionized hospital and since the 1800s, since its been open, their nurses havent felt the need to be unionized. Why you make ask? because they treat their nurses well and there hasnt been a need to be unionized. IMO. Of course there are still issues and down sides to MSK, such as burearcy and policy changes, etc. But you get that at any hopsital.

    I believe that Sloan Kettering has a major competitive DISadvantage: they don't have an employer-sponsored pension, which you DO get at a NYSNA-unionized hospital and 1199-unionized hospital..I believe Memorial Sloan simply provides a 401(k)-type plan, which consists of the EMPLOYEE putting in $ and the employer putting in ZILCH.....perhaps Sloan Kettering nurses should consider being represented by NYSNA....

    The fact that Sloan-Kettering is a non-profit does NOT prevent them from contributing/matching employee contributions; instead, from your post, it seems that Sloan-Kettering simply chooses to NOT provide this retirement benefit....my hospital doesn't match my 403(b) retirement contributions either, but it DOES provide 100% of a pension that can result in about $25,000/yr during retirement after working there 20 years (at current pay rates, pension plan terms, et al.) Does Sloan-Kettering have ANY type of pension or is the 403(b) vehicle the only retirement benefit??? Thanks. P.S. Not meaning to criticize, but just clarify for all us nurses what the "true" compensation is at NYC hospitals so that we RNs and nursing students can make the most informed choices.

    Jenna,
    What was it about Cornell that changed your mind??

    no non-profit hospitals are not allowed to contribute to IRA accounts, which are 401K and 403B accounts. They do contribute to a pension plan, which is different from an IRA. I believe you have to work at Memorial for a period of time (which I do not remember since I have been there for so long) to become vested. when you are vested, you will receive money from Memorial when you retire.
