I am a recent grad and have been blessed with two jobs offers. Both jobs are in the Coronary Care unit. I am having a difficult time deciding which position to choose.
Hospital A is the leading authority in coronary care in the country. The position is for rotating day/nights with 2-12 hours and 2-8 hour shifts per week. The pay starts at 23.00 per hour with 0.60 increase after orientation and a shift diff of 1.00 for nights. The orientation is for 12 weeks. They provide for 6 uniform pieces per year. They offer loan repayment assistance for a 2 year commitment. Parking costs 50.00 per month and is taken directly from check. They self-schedule and within 6 months I have the option to go to 3-12 hour shifts.
Hospital B is an excellent hospital as well. The position is for day/night rotation with 3-12 hour shifts. This position is salary and includes some
overtime. If a certain amount of hours are obtained then you can ask for block pay which is time and a half. The orientation is for 24 weeks. No uniforms or student loan repayment. Parking costs 45.00 per month. the unit is very nice and the nurses are nice.
I don't know which one to take. Hospital A sounds good, but I am worried about the shorter orientation. What do you guys think????
