Was offered a job with a starting salary of $30.00/hr in Arlington. There is a 5 grand sign on bonus along with 3 grand for moving expenses. Should I be worried about the working conditions at the hospital (Medical Center of Arlington)? Thanks for any advice!

I think this is a good opportunity with great starting hour. What working conditions are you talking about? As I'm only a student I'm sure you could ask the stipulations of your job. I'd just be weary of the sign on bonuses because if you decide to move if something sudden arises you will have to pay that back if you don't finish your contract.

I'm always cautious of sign on bonuses also but that sounds like a great opportunity.

Are you a new grad? I would say take the job as well.

Sounds like a fairly decent offer. From what we are seeing offered as new grads and then adding say 5% per year which seems to be a topout for most hospitals annual merit raises.

I would check the nursing ratios in that state. My friends mother works in TX and says she sometimes has 11 pts at a time. Unthinkable for a California girl like me.
