jefferson hospital

  1. Hey everyone....I will be graduating in May 07. I applied for a few positions in the downtown area and when researching Jefferson learned that the shifts were 2 12's 2 8's. Does anyone work there and can tell me how that goes, if they like it better than 3 12's etc. I know that 3 12's would be ideal for me but I really like Jefferson, so I wasnt sure if 3 12's was an option there? Also, what is their policy on sick time etc, I know that some hospitals have a demerit system or will write you up after a few times, I just wanted to learn as much as I can before I make my decisions!! Thanks for your responses!!

    what is the TEAS?

    It's an entrance exam like the NLN or the NET. It's a requirment for some schools...like Frankford and Jefferson I think.

    Hi Lianoosh, I'd be happy to give you my manual...it is written in and thus kinda messy, but you are welcome to it. I live in Mt Airy, and go to Episcopal in Kensington, if either place is an easy pick up for you. BUT - if you mean that the test is tomorrow, good luck! I didn't find the test too hard, but studying did help since I had been out of school for 20 years.

    Hi. The shifts depend on what floor you are working on. The nurses for each floor decide what type of shifts they want to work.
