Welcome to the great state of Maine! I think you will find the working conditions in Maine may be better than many states because of the population of the state. Nurse/patient ratio is usually more reasonable than in some of the more highly populated areas. There are 2 large hospitals, one in Portland and one in Bangor that have NICU's and advanced level Cardiac units. The Bangor hosptal, EMMC, is unionized. There are about 30 hospitals in all statewide, many of them 20-50 bed rural hospitals. You may find the equipment is not exactly "state of the art" as Maine is a poor state. Where are you going to locate? Feel free to PM me if you'd like to know more. Glad to help where I can!
