    Ok thats what i thought you meant. It just has a list of the 6 different departments my application and resume were sent to and the job submission status under each one.

    GOOD!!! What departments did you apply for?
  7. by   cab3f
    Peds, OR, Surg PCU, Multisystem ICU, Rehabilitation, and Oncology. How bout yourself? Peds is my top choice but either way I think I will learn a lot in any of the departments. If I had phone numbers I would call myself and ask..."are you gonna call me anytime soon??" lol. I need work

    I applied for Pediatrics, Women's Services, tele, Med/surg and ER. I was offered a job here in Women's Med/Surg, Med/Surg and Rehab so I think I will stay here unless offered Pediatrics, Women's or ER. I really want OB or NICU! I hope we hear soon!

    I got called by a nurse recruiter there today for more information following up on my job application several weeks ago. I'm from out of state, and I'm not sure yet about the quality of this hospital from a nursing standpoint: I didn't see any mention on their website that they have Magnet status.

    But I'm having a hard time finding any openings for new grads in my area (DC) in ICU, so I'm looking around for opportunities elsewhere.

    Quote from BeMurphy
    My Interview was two and a half weeks ago, I interviewed with only one branch of Florida Hospital for one unit (though I applied for several) so that in mind, other branches may be looking at your applications and the hiring processes would then be different. I am very excited, I graduated in December and was starting to get a little disheartened with the whole process so this is really exciting. The interview it self was more practical and welcoming then any I went through in California, I enjoyed being given the chance to go through a case study with the nurse manager and nurse educator in-order to demonstrate my knowledge. I wish you the best of luck!

    Hi BeMurphy! I got an interview with FL hospital next week. What was the case study like? Was it more to demonstrate your technical skills or more critical thinking/decision making skills. I also graduated in December and I feel a little rusty so any advice you could give me would be great! Thanks so much.

    I went thru Fl Hospitals GN/critical care program about 3 years ago. The critical care program has 2 wks of classroom going over body systems, reading EKG's, and ACLS. It was pretty good. I was hired for a PCU floor in one of the satellite hospitals so I had to go thru the critical care program. Then I was placed with a nurse preceptor on my floor for 12 weeks. It was nice to have one nurse to follow and ask questions. We had 5 pt's which I think is a lot since they're all monitored. They have since switched the staffing to 3 pt's with no techs so the RN's do total care. Floor nursing was not for me. It's very stressful. I lasted 6 mos. I was probably not on the right floor. I was told that, if I could handle it there, I could work anywhere. I now work in the office of a home health agency. Florida Hospital is Seventh Day Adventist and there is a lot of focus on spirituality. It's not forced down your throat, but I was always aware of it. Let me know if you have any specific questions. I also worked at the main hospital as a rounding nurse for a while.
