The magnet hospitals in/around Baltimore are University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), The JH Hospital, Sinai Hospital, and Franklin Square. Does anyone work at these hospitals and have experience with the hospital helping you or your collegues with graduate level education? Do you feel the nurses in these hospitals are really set apart from other hospitals? Do you feel there is an advantage for nurse who is interested in pursuing graduate level education to work at one of these hospitals (besides for the fact that they are top quality)?
Quote from ChristineN
I understand that it isn't ideal, but if you are doing a reverse commute, or are able to move, it might be worthwhile.
It is a lot more than less than ideal.
Think close to 2 hrs or more for the commute each way to and from Baltimore depending on location.
That's a lot of time, especially if you are tired.
When I lived in Rockville and worked in Bethesda, the 7 mile trek took anywhere from 20 minutes to 100 minutes or more, depending on time and traffic issues. And rush hour is from 0530 to 1030 AM, and 1445 to 1930, with traffic blocked often in both directions on the beltway, and other major thoroughfares.
