Hello, so glad to have a community like this. I'm graduating this may 2013 from Tyler with BSN and would love to move to Dallas where my family is. I am very certain that you nurses can help me out with some career decision making; nurses have most of times been kind in my life, so I thank you for that, and I am glad to become one very soon.
I will come out frankly. There are 2 things that I prioritize with the job. Good starting salary (I live dirt poor right now + loans) and how good are they with training and how much I can learn.
I did some research and it seems that Parkland is the place of choice if I like to get top class training and good salary, but I also heard some negative things such as bad clientele, basically "poorness" affects Parkland so it seems. Then there is Baylor, Methodist, Medical City, Las Colinas, SouthWestern, etc etc etc. Anyways, I want to get as much salary I can, but also looking for hospital where I can really learn and not deal so much with bad work setting where staff hate each other. I heard Baylor is really friendly in that perspective.
Any line that meets optimally between high salary and best training would be awesome. Please write me any of your advices, I am almost a new grad, I don't know squat compared to yal. By the way, I am trilingual and very fluent in all 3, Spanish being one of them. Thank you so much!
