    Im confused, you start orientation there next month? So they are no longer hiring?

    I don't think they are hiring anymore. I know there were 40 spots available and they recently had interviews on certain dates, the last date being the 12th of December I think. I got a call a week later offering me a position, and I start orientation in January. I don't know if there are any more spots are available, I know there were alot of applicants there when I went- but apply on their website it wont hurt. Thats exactly what I did, then I got a response to go in for one of their interview days.

    Hi,

    I also start orientation in January. This sounds crazy but I was soo excited to start that I didn't ask about salary. Would you guys know the salary for a part time RN? Also do we get full benefits? I didn't know they had that many spots.

    Figured I'd jump in on this.. I've also been offered a job there late last week. It is part time and from what I understand the training is full time (for me 1 month orientation 3-4 month preceptorship) and afterwards ill get 37.5 hours every two weeks. It is possible to get a max of 64 hours every two weeks but nothing is guaranteed. I had another offer at great hospital but it was for med surg. I had a rough time turning it down because it was full time, 73k and EXCELLENT benefits. I went with my heart and took WMC because it was a critical care position (my passion as a new grad). As far as WMC... the full time pay is 66.5k for new grads, regardless of the floor.

    I am curious to know what floor all of you were hired on? Hope to meet you all soon =)

    Hey shadowness,

    I'd like to ask you which was the other hospital you applied with and turned down? I'm asking because I'm a new ADN graduate and boy it's though out there! Just would like to know where are the hot jobs for us.

    Hi shadowness,
    I was hired for a med Surg unit. What date did you interview ? I went on the 5th. I also interviewed for icu.

    I went that same day I believe. I interviewed for burn ICU, cticu and med surg and got cticu. I was one of only guys there lol
