    Med-Surg

    You are SO right!! I have almost finished up my orientation, and today I started off with 5, discharged 1, and admitted 2. So I had 6 pretty much the whole day. Having 6 is tough especially if they have a lot going on. For some reason patient load is divided up by room number not by the needs of the patient. For the first time, I left so upset. I really think that the care my patients received today was not the best that I could have gave them. That is why I think I need to go into a whole new area. I am so dissapointed with the health care system. Gee................ 3-4 patients, no sweat

    New Grads- what starting rates are you seeing?

    Jules A~ Thanks I will be moving to Odenton the end of June. I have been told that Anne Arundel Medical Center would be the best option due to traffic. I have heard that the average salary in area hospitals is 25/hr days. I have called about 8 hospitals and none of them have returned my call. Guess I will just fill out the applications and go from there. Take care!

    UMMC/ Shock Trauma Center

    Hello! Glad to see a post on AAMC. We will be moving from Louisiana to Odenton the end of June. I was told that AAMC would be my best bet due to traffic. Any other suggestions?? Thanks!

    Med-Surg

    Hello! I am a new grad and will be coming off of med-surg orientation next week. I feel so overwhelmed most of the time. Not sure if this is something that I want to stick with or not. I find med-surg VERY frustrating and I have considered going into another area. You were saying that your preceptor gave you a schedule to follow. If you don't mind, I would love to have a copy of it. Thanks!!!

    Moving to Baltimore--quiet/safe areas to live?

    I am a new grad and I am making 22$/hr and the cost of living in Louisiana is cheap compared to MD. I am hoping that MD will pay more:) I am in the process of applying for endorsement for MD. I should have the documents finished up this week. So far everything is going as planned. Just not sure where to apply for a job. I guess I will get my feel when I get up there. We are so excited to get back up north. The south is great, but I'm a northern person for sure. We will not miss the insanely hot summers here!!! Thanks for replying!!

    Maryland Endorsement- Need help

    Hello! My husband just received orders to Fort Meade a few days ago. We will be arrriving to the area around the end of June. I have already contacted MBON by email and they sent me an endorsement application. Is this what I should be filling out (currently living and licensed in the state of Louisiana)? In the application it is asking to select a county and what is your permenent address. We do not have housing yet, so I do not know what I should fill out for these questions. I just want to make sure that I am filling out the right info and forms. Thanks in advance!

    Moving to Baltimore--quiet/safe areas to live?

    Thanks so much for the info!! I have heard that JHH pays less, but how much less. I went to UMMC web page and it looks like a beautiful hospital. The education side of it looks promising as well. I saw that White Marsh is in Baltimore County. Does that area have good schools? Our report date is June 30th, so we have so much to do. Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions!!

    Moving to Baltimore--quiet/safe areas to live?

    I know that I replied to this thread many months ago, but we just received news this week that we are officially moving to Baltimore in June. We are going to try for base housing first and if the waiting list is too long then we have narrowed down some apartments in Cockeysville, Ellicott City, and Columbia. I am interested in working at either Johns Hopkins or University of Maryland. Any more opinions on housing, hospitals, and schools for our kids would be greatly appreciated!!

    It took exactly 48 hrs for me! I know how you feel though. I really feel bad for those who have to wait for 4 weeks. I would really go nuts. I did hear that one person got there results at midnight instead of waiting at 0800. Who knows. Good luck though........
