The pay is much better at WHC but having John Hopkin's on your resume will land you a job anywhere you go for the rest of your life. With that being said, if you can work at WHC (work conditions, shortage, type of patients/diagnosis, politics), you can work anywhere. Both hospitals you will learn so, so much. I guess it depends on your preference and what exactly you trying to achieve. There both great hospitals to learn and build your skills.

I live in Alexandria, VA. though I know its an easy commute for me to WHC, I keep thinking about the opportunity I am throwing away if I decide not to go to JHH..I heard about the significant difference in pay, but that doesn't seem to stop me from thinking about the JHH (at least for now).
I really wanna do ICU but the offers to me from either hospital is not ICU - cardiac short stay with WHC, and Medical Intermediate care with JHH. I think I like the JHH position better, BUT I am not sure if one, is it worth it to lose couple of $$ per hour: second, worth the commute; third, if JHH training is great enough that it is worth to justify my first two points.
ahhh...I think I am just talking out loud. any help/comment is appreciated. thanks
- 0Jun 14, '12 by terps00Hi all, I will be graduating from my nursing program this coming winter. I am interested in applying to the cardiac surgery stepdown unit at WHC. I am not familiar with this hospital or unit and was just wondering if anyone had any experience or could give me an idea of what the environment/climate is like for nurses on this unit or just at whc in general. Thanks so much for your help!!

I am a recent (December) graduate and received a request for more information identical to the one posted at the start of this thread. I replied immediately by voicemail and email and haven't heard back from the recruiter. Has anyone had a similar situation or is this most likely related to the holidays? There are a few other job offers on the table, but WHC is my first choice and I would like a chance to interview there before signing a contract.
