Hello! I got accepted at Bellevue's Neuro ICU and started my orientation 2 months ago. Orientation in critical care is long and tough, they will also cross train you to MICU, SICU,CCU and CV PACU. They want to make sure that you're comfortable before they let you work on your own. I'm still in orientation now and will be off orientation by last week of April (hopefully I'm comfortable in Neuro ICU at that time). Staffing is still a problem (not only in Bellevue), but recently they hired many RNs to solve the staffing problem. When it comes to salary, private hospitals pay more, but if you're looking for a good retirement benefits and stability then Bellevue and other HHC facilities is the place.
