    Several of my classmates accepted positions at Barnes-Jewish after graduation. No complaints so far - and many are still working there. It's a huge facility that sees the sickest of the sick, so you will see and learn a ton. Good luck, and congrats on graduation!

    I started there 1 year ago and went through their 5 months of orientation out of nursing school. I has been a wealth of experience. I think I have seen and been a part of everything I have ever learned about in nursing school and THEN A WHOLE LOT MORE!!

    Swan can I ask if you are still there and if so what floor are you on? Was the orientation of 5 months a standard time they give for new grads?

    It is a "Mandatory" 5 month preceptorship/orientation with classes and homework and floor time that is designed to ease you into the scenery. There are many things to know in there and sometimes it can be a little un nerving. Better to be prepared. Did you get accepted into the fellowship?

    I have applied at Barnes myself. Spoke to the nursing recruiter today. Stated was still going through all the applications. According to him, the fellowship begins in June. For med/surg that is. The reason Ive applied there is because of the fellowship. Please, its been a long, tough road for me finding a job in a hospital, please cross your fingers, light a candle or pray pray pray for me to be accepted. Hard for me to find a job in a hospital I guess because Ive held two jobs in nine months. The first one, there three months. The preceptor didnt know how to be a human being let alone anything else. The other hospital-had no formal training in place.
    Sorry, off track. Go for the fellowship and good luck
