As a New Grad, I jumped at the chance to land a job at a prestigious hospital. I didn't think through the commute situation thoroughly. It would *only* be 3 nights a week. It can't be that bad!
After 18 months, of a 90-120 minute commute ONE way, I am so burned out. I am at the point where I dread going to work, even on my days off.
I signed a contract & I intend to fulfill my obligation.
Can you please give me your honest feedback in regards to hospitals in Orange County? I am particularly interested in CHOC, St. Joe's, Kaiser-Irvine, UCI, Hoag, Orange Coast & Fountain Valley.
I am also looking at making a change into Mother-Baby/L&d, but decreasing my commute is my highest priority.
Thank you for your assistance. Feel free to PM me if you would like to be more open/honest about a particular hospital.
