so I got hired at a local ED...they told me what the salary is and all but I was too embarassed to ask if they pay starting the first day I show up for orientation....they told me the orientation will consist at first of 2 weeks with a nurse educator and then on the unit for approx 6 months (depending how I progress) do all the hospitals pay as soon as you start orientation?
I've never heard of an employer that doesn't pay for anything they require you to attend. I'm sure there are some wacko's out there, but you should be fine. Congrats on your new job! :balloons: :balloons:
I started off at the hospital's "graduate nurse" pay, which was a couple dollars less than an RN. Then, once I passed boards, I started getting RN pay. Yes, I started getting paid from the very first day. You should, too. You will find that anytime you are at work for something related to your job, meetings, classes, etc. you will be paid (should, anyway!)
cool..thanks for the quick response guys/girls....I dont know If i'll work at this hospital (Coney Island Hospital part of the HHC corp in NYC) because they offered me 10k less than another hospital (Maimonades Medical Center) which also has a great ED and is applying for Magnet status...I went on an interview at Maimonades and waiting to hear from them....they too have the same orientation process...I was just worried because I'm moving out the the BILLS are coming!!!
