    CRNA....I bet it did cost a bundle, especially with the gift certificates!

    Were they offering any interesting internships for new grads? Its just
    to far for me to drive on a daily basis. It would be about 45 minutes one
    way and that is minus any type of traffic.

    I wanted to thank you for the insight on SLU and the different floors!
    I did tour once again and interviewed, last week during my spring
    break. I interviewed for 9 ICU, it went great and looks like I will be
    starting there in June! I am thrilled with the floor, hospital and benefits

    Will you be staying there upon graduation? Maybe we will have the same
    orientation dates!

    Best of luck to you!

    Hey that's great Channa! SLU is really a nice place to work, and I'm really enjoying it there. I am staying there (I just went to St. John's last night for the free stuff. . . I know that's awful ), but I'm up on 7ICU. I'll be starting GN orientation in early May, but we may be seeing each other! I'm a night shift kind of gal. What will you be working? You'll definitely meet one of my best friends in the world there. Her name's Kelly, and she's up there on 9ICU too. Did you check into that future nurses program at SLU (that's the program that pays $5000 for a year contract)? If not, you may want to call Tricia Jackson in HR to ask about it.

    I will be graduating with my BSN in July. My school had a career fair with about 80 institutions recruiting new grads. Also, look in mags such as Nursing Spectrum for healthcare recruitment seminars/conventions in your area. Also, I am going to the NSNA Convention in Philadelphia in April, they will have a career fair there also.

    Good Luck.
