LIJ-New Hyde Park, interviewing for position

Posted

I am interviewing for a position on 4N an oncology floor because thats pretty much all thats open right now. I was wondering what anybody has heard about it cuz im scared that it will be a bad experience. does anyone know how the orientation is cuz ive heard mixed things about that to. Also when you are offered a position whats a polite time frame to get back to someone about it? thanks for any input!

Don't know much about 4N, but NSLIJ has a critical care fellowship program for adult and pediatrics if you're interested working ICU

What does the fellowship program entail? Any info would be helpful.

Hi billythekid,

I'm also interested in the LIJ fellowship. I heard that LIJ hires into the fellowship two times a year. Do you know when these two times are? Also, I know that the training period lasts for a year but at what point do you become an independent full-time ICU nurse? Is the fellowship compedetive? How many nurses do they hire? Thanks in advance for your help!

Sorry laffytaffy,

I've been trying to figure out how to PM you and it turns out you need 15 posts to PM now on allnurses so I can't PM you. Any chance you can post on the thread? Otherwise I'll PM you when I get my 15. Thx!

Hi murasaki81 unfortunatetly I can't respond to you because you have to have 15 posts to even reply. Anyway I dont know to much about the fellowship program. I wanted to comment about the orientation process asked by the person who started the thread. I dont recommend the floor and the orientation is unorganized.

This year, there were 3 fellowship classes... starting in March, June, and October... not sure of the specific stats of how many applied versus accepted, but I know a few people who were not offered fellowship spots (there were about 20 RN's in my group).. the ppl i know who didn't get a spot were offered a job on a different floor though. After classes and working with a day and nite preceptor, the target time for independent assignments is 6-7 months.

I was on 4N as a student and thought it was a dump. But most floors are terrible.

Good Luck.:up:

North shore LIJ are both terrible with calling people back. I work at manhasset. nursing is terrible. The only good thing is the paycheck and the time off. it is a terrible attitude but the truth. I went to nassau and graduated in 2006. where did you go?

i went to university at buffalo graduated in may, i just feel stuck because i dont have alot of options coming in and if they do call me back and offer me a position im probably going to have to take it because of my position. I guess my attitude is i put in a year there and i can get a job somewhere else better. Have you considered other hospitals? How long have you been working at manhasset, what floor do you work on?
