  5. Surgical Step-Down
    And also, I&Os are very important on a surgical floor. A lot of times, patients will be "dry" when they come up from the PACU. Watch their urine output, and let the doctor know if it's low so that...

    I was started at $31/hour as a new grad at a major teaching hospital in South Jersey. As far as negotiating salary, with as saturated as the market in this area is, I'd be hesitant; there are...

    Here's my brain sheet: enough room for a patient sticker in the top left, and it's for night shift on a primarily surgical floor. I personally like open, yet organized space to jot down information....

  12. med surge vs ICU
    For our hospital, it is dependent on the level of monitoring that they need. I work on a med-surg floor, and while we do get some sick people up there, they can be on our floor because the physicians...

  13. New Grad RN, BSN in South Jersey/Philadelphia region
    Yeah unfortunately, unless you have an amazing "in" at Cooper, they haven't brought on ASN/Diploma new grads in a couple of years because their Magnet application is currently being processed (it's...

  14. RN jobs at Cooper Hospital
    HR takes forever to get back to people. My advice is to keep trying; they hired on most of their BSN new grad techs, as well as quite a few from UMDNJ who had clinical there. It also depends if you...

  15. NJ Board of Nursing - What the Heck?
    3 of us here had instant success going to Newark, as did two of my new grad coworkers. So far, going to Newark seems to be the most effective way to get things moving. Good luck to you!

    As far as advice, the only thing that I can say is to keep trying and keep your name in front of the HR people. It appears that Cooper went internally before going externally judging by the number of...

  25. New Grad RN, BSN in South Jersey/Philadelphia region
    Keep trying at Cooper. They just hired a slough of new grads (and they picked up a lot of their techs who graduated this past May/June, so they probably had priority over external candidates). If...
