Help for a new grad deciding which hospital to work at...

Hi Everyone,

I am going to graduate in December from a BSN program at NYU and am starting to look into the different hospitals around the city to see which is the best to work in. The things I am interested in are what the orientations are like for each and also the pay scale for each (I have a lot of debt to pay off!!!). If anyone has any advice on specific hospitals I would love to hear it. I live in Brooklyn and so would either like to work there or, in Manhattan.

Thanks a lot! Hope to hear from you all soon :kiss

:) The Continuum Hospital complex (St- Luke's - Roosevelt, Beth Israel, Long Island College Hospital, etc) have a comprehensive orientation program and the salary is competitive. Check their website.

Thanks a lot! I just checked on their website and everything sounds good but they don't really get into specifics about what kind of orientation program they offer or what a competitive salary is. Do you work at one of their hospitals and if so, do you know who I would contact about this kind of stuff or maybe you know a little about these issues? Thanks again for replying to me and hope to hear from you soon :p

I have worked at Beth Israel on the lower east side, and cannot recommend it.

I have also worked at NY Presbyterian - Cornell and absolutely loved it.

Thanks for your input!

Did you work at NYP as a new graduate? if so, what was their orientation like? does NYP pay well? (I am going to have a lot of student loans to pay off!!!)

Thanks again

Each hospital (at Continuum) has a different starting salary. The orientation programs are similar---5 to 7 days in ther classroom and 3 weeks on the unit. The Intensive Care Units have additional specialty unit content, materials and classroom time.

Due to corporate confidentiality, you will have to telephone each Continuum facility directly for exact salaries and the central Nursing Education Department at the Renfeld Center for the course content of the Orientation programs.

Good luck.

:nono: NOTE: During your telephone interview, avoid revealing that you have financial needs (i.e., unpaid loans, etc). Instead, inform them that you are collecting the data for your own knowledge base.
