Hi there! Congrats on the job! I am interviewing with the SICU there tomorrow to start in the October 2017 nurse residency cohort. Any tips? What should I expect?

Did they offer shift differentials or premiums? Also do they take into account previous healthcare experience when determining the rate ? Or does every new grad get the same ? Thanks

There are night and weekend differentials.

My understanding is that all new grads are started at the same rate because they are all considered "new grads" if you have previous nursing experience then you would not fall into that category. If you were a LPN or tech or something like that, it doesn't really count as experience because you were not acting in a RN role.

Hey guys, just curious as to the structure of the nurse residency program? Is it classroom for a few months or are you going straight into the clinical aspect? Thanks!

Nurserocks6, the residency is separate from your training and experiences on your unit. Residency "class" is once a month for 4 hours for the entire first year of employment. Since this is only once a month, you will be working on your own well before residency is over. Typically, orientation on the floor is about 12 - 16 weeks.

Funny moment, I'm a new grad currently on 2NW, started in July - good luck and welcome to 2NW! If you have any questions most of the nurses are really good about teaching and wanting to be helpful! The bridge modules can be a little ...eh, but you'lll gain a lot of skills really quickly on the unit. Good luck and see y'all around!

Hi, I just accepted a position on that floor, are you still working on that unit and if so how do you think your orientation process (on the unit and off) prepared you to be on your own!
