East Orange General Hospital in Essex County-

  1. Hey guys,

    I've accepted a position at EOGH and seeking feedback. How is the culture, environment? The salary I discovered is on the lower end of spectrum, but feels that it may be great learning environment as not too experienced BSN.

    Thanks again guys-

    I got hired for telemetry unit . I certainly agree about the economy and the negative ability of jobs. After school, I got hired to the first place I applied working with a vent dependent population. 1 year later, I decided to branch out and only then I felt the difficulty in landing a job with less than 2-3 years exp.

    Trying to remain optimistic as I hear negative feedback from the hospital such as high patient/staff ratio, and difficult seasoned employees. Either way, I'm super excited to tackle the challenges head on. What dept are your friends working, and how long have they been there? Also, did they feel orientation was adequate?

    Thanks :-)

    pm if you can. yes the pt ratio is high varies from 6-9 depending on your floor. but i am shocked that some of the top ranked hospitals in nj also have 6-8 pts per nurse so dont let that get you down. the employees can be nasty from what my gf has shared with me, but u can switch floors after 6 months it hink?
    are youw orking days or nights?
