I think CMC and Presby are pretty welcoming to new grads and actively seek them!
It's impossible to know how a preceptor will be as there all kinds of individuals that orient people and they can be good or bad-not necessarily reflecting on the hospital system..
As far as hospital units go, they may be more or less welcoming of new grads, but there's no way to really know that with any certainty as things always change, people transfer, etc. that makes that different anywhere you go..CMC does have a new grad/special program for those who want to specifically go to the ICU which sounds pretty welcoming..
Both hospitals have a pretty friendly 'new grad' stance overall..
