I have been job hopping to be honest, I have a job at a nursing home/skilled facility right now just started and im still not sure about it. Most facilities north of the city do not have float pools or PRN for back ups so you end up picking up all the slack all the time and it's unsafe. Northeast Georgia braselton is the nicest facility I've been to so far but it's a drive. Northeast ga in Gainesville is ok too depends on unit. Emory is the best hospital here but they require BSN which I do not have. Grady hospital is getting better but is not so safe area. Eastside medical in snellville is short staffed all the time, Gwinnett medical is good except ortho floor has issues. (I've made friends at a lot of facilities) all of wellstar is great most recommended but it's a hour and half with traffic for me.
Traffic, huge huge issue here, get peachpass asap if you plan on using i85, can get expensive but otherwise you will sit for long periods of time in traffic. It's the only thing that keeps me working here. It's only getting worse every year people are flocking here due to lots of jobs and it's booming.
Use greatschools.com to find your area to live in. Schools
with 9/10 are great.
It took about 2 months to get my license, you will have to fly here and get finger printed at the beginning stages of licensure. The Board of nursing is really non exsistent so everything takes longer. They don't even have a website, they use the secretary of states website.
If you have any questions about the area to live I can try to help. Good luck!
