Does anyone have any information about Temple Hospital?
The nurse-patient ratio
When to apply
Can I start as a GN while working on my RN?
What is their orientation like for new nurses?
I graduate this May! (I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel!). I honestly can't believe it. Although, I am trying to stay focused on the present moment, I'm a little nervous because many senior students are telling me that I should be making a list of the hospitals i want to apply to. They are also recommending that I work on my resume so that I can mail it out by the end of January. Am I being naive by thinking that that's too soon?
Since I've enrolled in Nursing school, I pictured myself working in Temple hospital. I grew up in NYC and currently live in the suburban area of PA.
My goal has always been to work in a diverse hospital & be able to help out the Spanish population. (Being a Latina, I feel it is part of my duty).
Anyway, I'm not sure if I should contact the nurse recruiter now or a month prior to graduating.
I'm not worried about the pay because I know that wherever I go, I'll be making a lot more than I make now. As a student nurse with three children and a part-time job working 15hrs per pay period, well I'm sure many can relate. I'll be making big bucks compare to now.
By the way, I took a drive to the hospital and felt at home. The hustle and bustle of the city along with the diversity embraced me. I hope they hire me when I do apply.
Anyway, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
