I have just finished a contract with this agency and can confirm that there are numerous problems. I would not recommend them at all.
I too am from NY, and moving from NYC to San Antonio and I am trying to figure out the whole process. At least I will now have a compact license. I am just doing the online option and getting the 120 day temporary license.
As a traveler in Manhattan, that is about what I am getting. Look at sublet.com or hotpads.com. You may want to search corporate housing and see what is there.
I have recently interviewed for a position in a San Antonio hospital and was wondering what the Methodist hospital system is like and what the area is like. I would be relocating from NYC. Any advice or information would be helpful (rent, good areas, reputation of the hospital, etc.)
I am from Ohio and live in NYC as a traveler. You have to be on top of your game. The nurses here don't play around or put up with BS. I was considered slow and stupid because I do have a midwest accent. I don't think I do, but I do. It is tough and you have to have a very thick skin. Jobs are scarce beyond belief. You are dealing with a big city and a big city mentality. Many patients I encounter don't speak english and there is a language barrier. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't have moved.
I have been an RN for 16 months now and have had a hard time finding a position. I have been working PRN as a school nurse, a one to one nurse for medically fragile children and in OR/PACU settings (mostly PACU). I would say that I have about 3 months of ambulatory PACU experience total and those are for women's health, orthopedic and plastics types of surgeries. I was offered a travel position at a prestigious hospital and I am wondering if I should take it. Before I became a nurse, I was in EMS for 8 years. I will be in ambulatory surgery at this facility. I really want to take it and hope that it will be a good experience. I won't get much orientation and that worries me. Any advice please.
Not worth it at all. I would run for the hills.... If they can't pay you for orientation, then I would be worried about ever getting paid.
Are you BSN or ADN degree holders? I am interested in Duke and was wondering what they were taking in terms of education.
Be careful working as a tech while having an RN license. You will be held to the standards of an RN not as a tech. I tried to work as a tech even though I have my RN and was told no by HR. Lots of liability. As far as hospitals that are hiring ADN's, I don't know of any. All that I have found want a BSN.
Good luck to everyone. I know I asked how many were being accepted for this round and was told only four. I interviewed previously for this fellowship and it is hard to get into. I am hoping that this time is a charm.
I am with you. I am a former paramedic with my ADN and can't get into a hospital in NYC or Long Island. I feel like I am paddling with one oar and going in circles.
Are they accepting only BSN students? How many are in this cohort?
They are interviewing, I just got a call from them. Hoping to connect with prospective candidates and past candidates. What was your experience like? How long was the program? and most importantly whats is the starting pay?
