Hey everyone, my name is Mark. I graduated with my BSN this past Saturday! I've been working as a PCT for 4 years, 2 in cardiac med surg/step down, and the most recent 2 years in CVICU. I'm from PA but I've accepted a job in Seattle in a CTICU. I'm pretty stoked, and nervous.
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and say that I'm excited to finally get to work!
P.S. Any tips for a cross-country move? Finding an apartment or signing a lease from 2500 miles away?
Sounds like an adventure! I am technically a "new" nurse, graduated last May, working in southern AL. I have some older kids who moved cross-country. If you already signed a lease, so be it.... but if you have not, try finding an Airbnb close to facility so you can learn the area and not be locked into a lease yet. Obviously, only take what you need, look at the local thrift stores when you get there or find something that is semi-furnished. Learn to live lean. Seattle sounds fantastic. You will love it! Good luck. Work hard.
