I've been informally offered a position at North Shore on a med/surg floor. I say "informally" because the manager gave me the thumbs up but I'm waiting for HR to ring me. I'm curious about the experiences other nurses may have had while working at North Shore or LIJ. How is the training? How is the salary? Are there any memorable (good or bad) experiences you want to share. I'm fairly certain I'm going to accept the offer regardless of salary just because of the proximity to my house, but I wonder if the lack of union and the potential stinginess of benefits (5k of tuition reimbursement??) might make me regret my decision.
