I worked fulltime at Sinai now just perdiem, i went to NJ (was higher pay for me and no tolls/parking fees) what did you want to know?
Well, I am actually originally from Monmouth County NJ, and worked for Meridian Health (Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Riverview Medical Center) I want to have the metropolitan teaching hospital experience while living in NJ near my family. (I'll take the fast ferry near my house)
Anyway, here are a few questions:
1. How are nurses treated?.....did you get ample educational opportunities?...did you have to pay for them? Any staff nursing advancement programs/ladders?
2. What is your patient load/acuity level? (ecmo, HFOV, surgical, nitric, etc)
3. Is your unit team-oriented, or are you "on your own"?
4. Do you learn from your docs, APN's? Do you collaborate with them, or just get to take orders?
Any info on Mt Sinai or even wherever you work now would be appreciated!
