Any nurses work at St. Francis in Roslyn, NY?

  1. Hi all!

    Just curious. Does anyone on here work at St. Francis in Roslyn, NY? I interviewed there and got the call today that I am being offered a job there. Orientation starts on August 21st.

    Just want to know if anyone works there and can let me know what work environment is, how the nurses are treated, nurse to patient ratio, etc. I've heard so many conflicting opinions. I've heard that the nurses are horrible to the patients and overworked and the doctors are rude. I've also heard that it's great hospital, they treat their staff wonderful and offer very good training to the nurses.

    In addition, I was also offered a job in a completely different facility which is South Oaks (psych/drug rehabilitation). Psych has always been an interest of mine but I would love to get some Med/Surg experience under my belt before I get into Psych.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi! I actually got a job here too and my orientation begins August 9th. I don't know anyone specifically who works there but whenever I tell people I'm working there, they have nothing but good things to say about the staff and the care given there. I think unfortunately anywhere we go is going to be a little conflicting at times but from its reputation so far, we should be in the clear. Fingers crossed ))

    Hi! Thanks for your response. I have spoken to a couple of friends that have worked there in the past and they had nothing but very good things to say about the working environment and the support for the nursing staff. I start orientation on August 22nd. Not sure about what unit I am going to be on yet. Today they reached out to me to set up an appointment for the pharm test. I'm excited! Best of luck to you.
