Just wondering if there are any recommendations to work, or I could just have a share day on most units. I am gonig to have about a year of experience when I start. Any units with great preceptors? Great working environment?

Hey iris... when you applied to NYP did you have a BSN or ADN? How is the environment and start out pay?

I have an associates. I love the environment, so far i have encountered lots of young nurses, and it seems like the older staff really enjoy teaching and are not the "eat-their-young" type. Of course this doesnt mean that they dont exist, but i havent encountered any. Morale seems pretty high.
I've heard from the grapevine that the hospital is moving towards hiring BSNs only in the future. How soon that will be i have no idea...
NYP-C is a NYSNA hospital so pay is according to the NYSNA contract...they pay is pretty good, definitely competitive. I think that the non-union hospitals pay more, but IMO, i'll take less pay for a good union...

Hey iris, did you have experience prior to getting hired at NYP? I mean what do they require of ADNs? I believe Mount Sinai will hire ADNs if they are matriculating to a BSN program with graduation within one year. Did you merely apply straight out of nursing school
and get hired?
also thanks for your previous reply
