New grad- StaRN or not?

cbbrewer cbbrewer (New) New

I am a new grad and I currently work as a PCT PRN at a local hospital. I was offered a position at the same hospital as an RN. My hospital does the StaRN program but I was told there were no spot available so I would just go straight to the floor after orientation. Now they have found a spot but there is a catch. I would become an employee of this training company for those 14 weeks of training which means no benefits. Since I am PRN as a PCT my full-time benefits were set to start on my start date as an RN if I don't go thought the program. The benefits are very important because my husband and I spend about $600 a month our of pocket for our current insurance plans. But I don't want to put money in front of more learning opportunities to be a better nurse. Just looking for some addition info on the StaRN program and if you felt that it was helpful. Thanks
