    This is kind of an old post, but I figured I'd respond anyway.

    North Broward Hospital District (Broward General, North Broward, Imperial Point and Coral Springs) pays 22.50/hr, $3 evening (3-11p), $5 nights (11p-7a), $3 weekends...Med/Surg at Broward General is giving sign on bonuses for new grads...$2000 for days, $4000 for nights, 1/2 after 90 days, the rest after a year.

    Several of my classmates will be working at Westside, and I think their base is $21 something. Their ER pays a $125 bonus plus time and a half for overtime, and they paid a bonus of $8000 for ER, payable quarterly over 2 years.

    they are definetly hiring new grads in l/d and nbicu and for 20 years as lpn you get 6-7 years experience as a Rn on your base pay, and weekend shifts get $10 hour for a 12 week shift...after orientation, i have worked in this system and you can not beat there benefits and working for a not for profit hospital is wonderful, they never turn anyone away no matter if they can pay or not
    email me for more info $10,000 sign on bonus and i was hired as a new grad

    Hello Robin,

    I know that your post is almost 4 years old, I was wondering if this stills apply. I will be a new grad RN in June 2011 and was hoping if Memorial hires new grad..

    I know times and the economy has changed, any information will be helpful...
