Hi all (again lol),

I was wondering if anyone works at St. Vincent's Behavioral Health in Westport? I got a call for an interview for a New Grad program. They said it was 5-6 mo orientation and working 40 hrs/wk to start. Does anyone have an idea about this program? Starting pay for St. Vincent's? Any info would be great!

Hi, I edited it b/c I 'stalked' your posts and saw you were a new grad.

I have friends who work for SVMC Behavioral Health and started as new grads but I'm not sure what new grad pay rate is.

Oh okay. I just hope it is a little bit better than 22.08 which is starting pay in FL. Lol

Yeah, I'm sure it is. CT pays much higher than FL. I'm pretty sure its high 20's..close to $30..but don't quote me.

As an new grad LPN in 2008 I was making close to $24 so new grad RN is def higher.

Do you know if SVBH is a union hospital? Just wondering. Thanks CT Pixie!

You've been awesome! Just ONE more question I promise. The position is for nights (also it says full-time but 64 hrs every 2 weeks?). Do they have good night and weekend differentials? Thanks! Sorry to message you so much!

Sounds like its full time at 32 hrs per week. I really can't answer anything more about it in terms of night/weekend diffs. I dont' work there. I have former classmate cohorts who do but I don't know personally.

Oh and about the union thing. I am almost 100% sure that the unlicensed workers are union, not sure if the nurses are also union.

The nurses are not union. the starting salary is $28-31. the pay is every 2 weeks,32 hours is considered full time :)

**Update everyone** I was told by the DON that I was provisionally hired for the RN Intern Program and will transition to my hired position (32 hr nights) after orientation. However, this is taking forever! Does anyone know if the hiring process for SVMC takes this long? Also does anyone know about their differentials? Thanks!
