I understand that John Muir in the Concord area has a new grad RN program. Do you have to go through this 5-6 month program before being able to work there? Does anyone know how much the hospital pays new grads in this program and would you suggest applying for this or going the other route and working at a hospital where they orient you to the unit for 6 weeks or so? Are there additional classes you have to take in these programs? I'm not sure what I want to do after I graduate and would like to know the benefits of both. Thank you.
