    Pros

    This hospital is one of the few in NYC that will take you as a new grad associates RN and train you (with a lengthy orientation) in the acute care setting. This hospital also has abundant opportunities for overtime and, if you can withstand the work, can easily cross six figures in your salary within your first year.

    Cons

    Orientation- this place has not learned to differentiate between quality and quantity and although the orientation is long (almost 4 months) the lack of oversight and organization makes it extremely inefficient. I was thrown to give a full patient load of 8 medications and document notes on them with a “preceptor” within the first day Culture- due to the surrounding area and the main demographic of both patients, support staff, and admin personnel within the hospital being west-Indian and of a lower SES then you will stand out if you do not fit that “type” and your coworkers will make sure you receive a cold shoulder. It seems that basic manners and customer service are things that are not taught to people in this place. This perception can be due to cultural differences, but the perception is all the same. The work: If you are to onboard in this facility within one of the IP adult floors (medsurg) then you are in for a treat of having up to 12 patients if you’re on nights. Although credit must be given in that staffing has adjusted to allow for a load of 9 patients most nights the reality is your supervisors will leave you scrambling with 12 pts of which multiple may need blood transfusions, up to 9 have been on telemetry monitoring with ectopy, missed beats, a fib with rvr or even ~20 second runs of nsvt and NO ANCILLARY STAFF to assist in patient care, vitals, or finger sticks. The sheer dread in knowing that you may miss something or kill a patient through negligence because there is not enough time to address them all is a feeling that is unexplainable. Coding patients, receiving ROSC, and watching a nurse fail to follow up leading to an expired patient is something that weighs heavily on anyone with a conscience and forever changes you. Addressing this topic later with your ADN will also prove unsuccessful as the reality is that either they do not care or do not have enough power to fix staffing levels and change the culture of the unit to one in which accountability is the norm. Also, the parking sucks and there’s no good food around.

    Pros

    -Patient's acuity is very high, so there is a lot to learn from your unit in a very short time. -Nurses and doctors treat you like family, very warm environment (with some bad apples, but that's everywhere) -NYSNA affiliated - You will become a nurse made out of titanium after a year, trust me. - Staying positive is an understatement, you have to be group-focused, mentally prepared, and focus on your self care before going into your shift.

    Cons

    -Patient to nurse ratio, in my shift, varied from 9-12. -Management is unresponsive to staffing, right now they don't like to hear things weren't done b/c of staffing. Some shifts, there would be 3 nurses on a 36 bed unit, leaving 12 patients each. - Nurses become in charge without proper training. - You need to be mentally strong and not give in with the negativity and nurse burn-out, stay positive and ALWAYS be a team player, it will get you through your shift. - Not payed enough for the amount of stress withstood each week.

    Pros

    Those who care provide good care.

    Pros

    Tier level 6 is the worst. Tier 2,3,4 are better but not open to new employees since April 2012.

    Cons

    Over work nurses. Nurses are understaffed. Make sure you document EVERYTHING you do and say to the patient.
