UPENN Hospitals

Posted

Is it possible to get a job at any Upenn hospital. How is the application process? That is my dream hospital when I graduate in May 2011. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks

Specializes in Vents, Telemetry, Home Care, Home infusion. Has 44 years experience.

job market is extremly tight for new grads due to abundance of seasoned rn's available due to hospital closures here. upenn now requires bsn per job description most positions ....

that said, bytime you graduate 2011, i expect some positions to be available to new grads due to burnout from those working short/tight by then. best way to get in having been a tech at hospital.

I'm currently going for my bachelor's now. I love the hospital and everything they stand for. Plus I plan to pursue my doctorate later on.
