    19 miles. It can take 20 minutes or an hour, depending on traffic. It usually isn't bad on the way there, but the way home is often miserable.

    6 min. drive if I hit the light green.

    7 min. drive if the light is red.

    My wife and I both nurse at two different facilities, but we are each only a 2 minute walk from our front door to the punch clock.

    Location, location, location!

    49 miles... just under an hour drive from my driveway to the offsite parking, then another 20 minutes to walk or take the darn shuttle bus. Good times.

    In previous jobs, I have had significant commutes and found that they cut into my "free time" way too much. So now, I choose to live very near where I work. I save myself a good 45 minutes 5 days a week by not commuting anymore. That adds up to 3 hours per week.

    I live around 5 miles away.

    Depending on time of day - approximately 8 minute drive.

    48 miles away...38-40 min drive. But I only do it 2 nights a week. And 46 of the miles are highway.

    72 miles, but 55 of them are freeway miles

    Takes me exactly 1 hour, 5 mins. from my driveway to the time clock.

    Wished I lived closer but the absolute closest hospital to me is 30 mins. away and it's a 6 bed M/S unit. Next biggest hospital is 45 mins. away and in another state.......

    So for me....it's all about driving......
