Howdy, I think this is my first post on the general forum. I'm a new grad, already passed my NCLEX (yay!) and graduating in May.
Basically, I interviewed at a large hospital 3 weeks ago, had an awesome interview, loved the unit and the manager and fell in love with the hospital. I had scheduled interviews at another hospital but at a later date (will come into play later). They offered me the job and the shift I want, and I kind of told them the situation that I was interviewing at the other large hospital in town.
I verbally accepted the job offer, partly in fear of losing the job due to time, partly because I REALLLY loved the floor, its a med/surg infectious disease floor.
Just got finished with my second round of interviews at the other hospital and found an open position on a cardiac/telemetry med/surg unit (MY IDEAL job!). They offered me the job today, the shift I want and $1 an hour more...haha. I loved it there as well.
I just need some opinions on delineating the differences in the hospitals.
Hospital A (the first one, infect. disease floor, already accepted verbally) - teaching hospital, largest hospital in the city, newer, seems to sponsor more of the sports teams in town (not that it really matters). Great benefits
Hospital B (cardiac/telemetry, offer made, pending decision) - private hospital, large hospital, its a tad older with smaller rooms that need updating. But the good news is that they are building a new unit to combine the med/surg, step-down, and cath lab cardiac units all on one floor in the next 1-2 yrs. Same great benefits
Any advice from any seasoned vets about how else I could try and compare the two?:spin: :spin: :spin: :spin:
