I am not a nurse nor in nursing school yet but I can tell you from having lived in the area for my entire life that it is a good hospital. Tons and tons of births there. Robert Wood Johnson is also in New Brunswick and RWJ seems to handle most other stuff a lot more (they are actually affiliated now but not sure how).
An acquaintance from high school has worked there for the past 2 years and she loves it and also apparently makes a lot of money w/over time and whatnot.
There is NO affiliation between St. Peters and RWJUH
St. Peters is good if you are a new grad and want to work in a less intense enviornment
RWJUH is high acuity, doing more state of the art, research, heart surgery, heart transplants etc.
RWJUH nurses work at a higher paced level. There is a union supporting their nurses which does not exist at St Peters.
RWJUH is one of only 3 hospitals in the USA to have received Magnet 3 times successively
Wait another month and see how the new contract at RWJUH is negotiated
