    Mount Sinai Med. Center Orientation

    This salary is after night diff right? Lol and jw, what kind of unit are you on? And how do you like it? Just after a couple of days of orientation, I already feel like I'm going to really love Mount Sinai because they are very supportive and want us to be successful.

    Mount Sinai Med. Center Orientation

    Hey Risa, It took me about a month and a half for the entire process from applying to interviewing to getting the job so yeah, it'll take a while. During orientation, the nurse recruiters came in and told us that for each position available there are about 400 applicants and for new grad positions there are more like 900 applicants for each one. So yes, you may not receive any info or callbacks due to the high volume of applicants but don't get discouraged, you might be one of the lucky few to get through! Apply everywhere and anywhere that has an opening and even apply for units that you personally might not want because although I preferred peds or L&D, I ended up on a med-surg unit. Good luck on your search!

    Classic II S.E. color choices

    I just got my Pearlized Pink Classic II S.E. stethoscope from Medisave and I love it! It came so quickly in the mail. Ordered around 6pm Thursday night and got it at 12pm Saturday! I got it engraved and it came out nicely! Everyone should order from Medisave cus you save a lot of money with the free shipping and free engraving!

    thanks NurseFairy! I have heard great things about Mount Sinai and I'm hoping it all works out smoothly when I start. aikz, yes, I graduated with my BSN and I do know for sure that Mount Sinai will not hire ASN who are not matriculated into a BSN program and who will graduate within the year (I asked my nurse manager to see if my brother who is an Associate degree nurse could also get an interview but nope..) They are looking to renew their Magnet status, that is why they prefer BSN. They also discussed how accommodating they are with people who are going back to school, scheduling their shifts around their classes so that's great. Also having those connects can be very helpful. Just ask them to speak to their managers and see if any openings are available when you do have your NY license.

    JoeNurse2b, yes, I already had my license at the time I applied. I applied for 3 positions, which is what they recommend to do online, and I got a position for a completely different floor then what I applied for. However, in this day and age, I took what ever I could get. I am a new grad so no, I did not have any experience in healthcare but I was an honors student, had an externship as well as a preceptorship in the PICU so those all looked well on my resume. When I talked to the nurse recruiter, she said that there were a lot of new openings but they have soooooo many applications that it is hard for them to reply to everyone. I think that you should network as much as you can and have someone recommend you if possible. NurseFairy, thank you! And all that I really know is that it is a two week orientation period with the preceptorship afterwards but I was just wondering what goes on during those two weeks and how can I prepare for it. Do you work at Mount Sinai? And if so, how do you like it?

    I applied online and got called in about a month later.
  8. Hey everyone! I am new to the site and I have searched for information on this topic but I haven't seen any current info about Mount Sinai's orientation process. Has anyone recently gone through their orientation? I am a new grad and I start October 10th and I'm excited and nervous at the same time! If anybody has any info, it'll be greatly appreciated! =)
