    Florida hospitals and apartment

    Florida Hospital Orlando also has the Health Village surrounding it which has some pricier apartments...The Ivy I think they're called. But they're literally around the corner.

    Florida hospitals and apartment

    I work for Florida Hospital Orlando in Central Florida and live in Sanford/Lake Mary area. I can tell you at least for here, the "sunrail" is an awesome commuter train that runs right to FH Orlando! There is an apartment right next to the Lake Mary s...

    Communication from ER to Floor RNs

    Hello All- I'm currently working on my last class for my BSN online - YES! It's the dreaded Capstone course and I have to come up with a process improvement project for it that I can put into play at work. I am currently working in a very large...

    Florida Hospital Graduate Nurse Program July/August 2015

    Blue, I'm not a man so I cannot help you there but my GPA from my ADN was also less than a 3.0 and they never brought it up to me. But I ended up going to a hiring event and that's when they interviewed me even though I was still under considerati...

    Florida Hospital Graduate Nurse Program July/August 2015

    Hey! Yes I attended the hiring event. I started getting nervous when I saw people just in and out with HR but they ended up taking me up for an interview on 3rd for Med/Surg and called me three days later to offer me the job! I was so glad I went!

    Are the horror stories true?

    Just so you all know, FH Med/Surg floors do not require a two year contract for new grads.

    GoFundMe Thoughts?

    I think that's a stupid reason to have one of those accounts. I am a 22y/o single mom of a 16-month-old and a new grad. I worked my butt off the last four years as a CNA and put myself through a community college for my ADN. I had to get student loan...

    New grads in the ER

    I recently applied and interviewed for a graduate nurse program in Florida. We could name which three areas were our preferences to have applications sent. I am already working as a graduate nurse in another state (med/surg) and I have been a CNA 4+ ...

    Has anyone had any luck with the Hiring Events? I had a phone interview with HR on Tuesday and she said she was going to forward me on. Wondering if I should try to attend the one Tuesday if I don't hear back by then?

    What are the nurse to patient ratios there? I am trying to relocate back to Florida from Missouri and the ratio here is 6:1 (ideally) which actually translates often times to as many as 9:1. This is on a Med/Surg floor.

    Florida Hospital Graduate Nurse Program July/August 2015

    So a bit of light has been cast on my situation! After being rejected in March (still in my final semester and working as a CNA), I made contact with an HR Recruiter who wanted my resume and said to apply again for the program. I updated everything l...
