Although I live in New York, I commute just 30 miles to work in one of the smallest hospitals in Massachusetts as an ICU/CCU nurse. It's small. . . it's really, really, really small! Why just the other day there were four patients in the entire hospital!
And there was one day when there was only one patient!
I love working here. Don't know how long the hospital will be able to keep its doors opens. But will stay there until I get the "pink slip".
I also love Massachusetts! (Well, and New York, too!) I lived in Boston for 5 wonderful years where I attended Berklee College of Music. . . . oh so long ago. . . . over 20 years ago . . . .
But it was a wonderful time for me. I love your mountains and your ocean seashores, and, of course, your people!
Just want to say a warm hello to you all from one nurse who works in Massachusetts to another.

Hi Ted and lpnbhw
Massachusetts born and bred! I live near the Southern NH border. I currently work med-surg and have been here for a little over a year. I started out in healthcare as a cna as well many, many moons ago.
I was born in cambridge and lived there until I was a teenager. If you want to see some really beautiful mountains and oceans you have to visit Maine. I'm quite partial to Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park. Very beautiful state.
Thank you for starting the state forums. It was a wonderful idea
