    I've heard that staffin at NY Methodist in Park Slope is ridiculous. 12 pts on med-surg. Or is that just the norm in NYC? sounds horribly dangerous, and I wouldn't put up with that no matter how good the pay was.
    I can only speak from my experience and what others have specifically told me, but I do think that 12 patients on med-surg would be an extreme case, perhaps where someone called in sick...I don't think that would be considered a "typical" load...I worked a "step-down floor" and had between 5 and 9 patients...the contract specifies one-to-seven nurse-to-patient ratio, but that ratio is not often observed; neverthless, I have found many positives here such as computerized charting, a supportive, friendly administration, good "support" services (e.g., pharmacy, nurse assistants, respiratory therapists, supply dep't), and of course the beautiful Park Slope neighborhood---a nice brownstone neighborhood with cafes, used bookstore, restaurants (and even a Starbucks right across the street for diehard fans!)---nice change from the sterile Upper East Side skyscrapers where NYPresb, Sloan-Kettering, HSSurgery, and Lenox Hill are situated..AND Methodist's current NYSNA contract provides for extra pay for up to thirty years of experience...in comparison, I believe that Mt Sinai, for example, maxes out at additional pay at 7 or 8 years.......

    That's cool that it's been a good experience for you. I got my info from a fellow traveler who worked there, and no, 12 wasn't an extreme case for her. apparently, they also had an ongoing protest petition form that the nurses filled out almost every night because of the dangerous staffing. Sounded like the hospital paid a lot for remodeling and making the hospital beautiful but not for adequate staffing. Oh and anything more than 5 patients on a step-down unit sounds dangerous! I was at a different hospital in the area where the step-down unit nurses got 4 patients, on days and on nights, which is much more reasonable.
    park Slope is gorgeous though. I loved that area.

    Hey Jenna,
    I'm a new grad and will be at MSKCC in Sept! I'm on Neuro/Ortho. How about you?

    Hey,

    If a hospital raises its starting salary after they hire you, can you ask for them to give you that raise, or will they automatically give you the extra money? I'm going to start working in September, but I have a feeling they are going to raise their base salary soon, and I want to be able to get that increase too.

    Any info would be helpful.

    i am currently interning at sloan kettering for the summer (i'm going into my senior year of nursing school). the hospital is unbelievable!

    what i noticed about ny hospitals: to differentiate the good from the bad...find out how long the nurses have been at the hospital. it seems mskcc takes care of their nurses. most of the nurses here have put in years (20+) these nurses are making well over 100k.

    for 2007 new grads started at 70k. next year, i heard it will be raised to 72 o 74k. their reason: "we want to stay competitive"

    i asked why the hospital isn't unionized and almost all the nurses have said, "the hospital takes care of their nurses."

    the do have a pension plan and you become fully vested after 5 years.

    their benefits are top of the line: 20 sicks days, etc

    the biggest upside is that mskcc is a teaching hospital. most of the nurses are the nicest you'll ever meet (you meet the mean ones too)

    they also subsidize housing...so they will pay half your rent in the buildings they own. the set up of these apartments are beautiful...doormen and everything.

    i asked about cornell and it seems the nurses go back and fourth. i haven't heard a lot of great things about cornell. it seems mskcc and cornell compete a lot but mskcc by far seems to be winning the battle.

    i am considering both when i graduate but my experience has only been at mskcc so obviously this is my first choice.

    I knew that MSKCC was a great hospital but I surely did not know that they offered subsidize housing. Wow that is great and I cant believe they pay half of the cost. I know NYU also offers housing at a reduce rate but they definitely dont pay half. Does that come out of your check at all. I so desperately want to work there. I applied but have not gotton a response as yet so I guess I'll wait until I take the NCLEX to apply again.

    i actually was just told the other day that the rent comes out of your check.

    don't be discouraged by the non response...i think they hire in cycles. they started orientation for new nurses when i started the extern program back in may and my friend (who is interning as well) just saw her friend who took the nclex a few weeks back starting his orientation this week.

    i really want to work at mskcc after i graduate but if i don't get it right after college i have a plan b....i'll probably work at ny pres or lennox for a year or so then apply to mskcc again if i don't get it the first time around.

    Thanks Mllogy for the encouragement. I had a interview with NYP-Columbia the Nurse Manager stated she was interested in me but she needed me to have a license first. What I have notice about MSKCC is that they usually pull there new grads from the internship pool. You guys get first dibs so I would not worry if I was you I know people who interned there and are already working.

    i wonder how much mskcc's plan pays...i did a rough calculation of the nysna plan at methodist (which lets you keep your pension if you work among any of the nysna-represented hospitals in the area (about 25 or more places, i think)...after about 25 years of working--and assuming current pay rates--it seems the annual pension could be at the minimum about $25,000---$30,000/year (and perhaps much more--the plan's specifics are on the nysna webste)---i've heard on this website that sloan-kettering's plan may not pay as much????? but their starting salary of $70k beats methodist's about $67k (assuming you receive the $1,750 bonus for having a bsn; also, the contract automatically adds 3% next march).. we also pay zero for health, dental, prescription benefits for us and our families.

    I haven't started clinicals, which is why I don't know much about hospitals, units, ect. So I am sorry if this is a silly question. I tried to find this out on my own by checking out their website. Does
    MSKCC have a med/surg unit? And if so, would a nurse get the same experience that she would if she worked at a non specialty hospital's med/surg unit?
