New York Hospital Queens in Flushing

  1. Hello everyone!

    I graduated in May 2007, passed my NCLEX in August 2007, and plan to start applying as a new RN in various hospitals in Queen and Manhattan. Since I live in Flushing, New York Hospital Queens in Flushing will be one of my top consideration but I don't really know much about this hospital in term of working environment and salary. I will be greatly appricated if anyone can share their experience with NYHQ.

    Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!

    Thank you in advance!!!

    Hi! I'm doing a travel assignment there right now. The staff is really great to work with, a lot of nice people. Staffing is crazy. I've floated to many med-surg floors- usually you get 9-11 pts per nurse. I have heard consistently that NYHQ is the highest paying hospital in Queens. I think the base pay is 70k. They're building a new building, I think, and staffing is suffering a bit. The staff are some of the hardest working people I've ever worked with.
    Hope that helps!

    Thank you for your reply!

    Wow! I cannot believe 9-11 patients per nurse, that seem like a whole lot.

    Once again, thank you for sharing!

    the extra 1 grand?? is hardly worth it. most hospitals are starting 69k anyways, plus night diff. you need to think about how safe such a nurse to patient ratio is. we have to think about protecting our licenses as well. no wonder staffing is suffering. that ratio sounds atrocious!
