    I'm from Manhattan and didn't get my license till I was almost 30. I now live in a small town in SC and have to drive every day but driving on highways or in big cities makes me nervous.
    I feel like this may be a limiting factor in where I can go for travel nursing..
    In theory would love to go to LA, San Diego, Phoenix, Houston but don't think I could handle driving there and they strike me as places you really NEED a car.

    If I were to go to SF, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, DC... I think I could get by fine with no car.

    What are some good places to travel to where you don't need a car or where driving is easy?

    Is it possible to do an assignment somewhere like LA, San Diego, Houston or Phoenix and get an apt walking distance to a hospital?

    Got a job offer at a level IV NICU!!!
    It's been my dream job forever and now I can't believe it's actually happening!
    Even though I have L&D and Mother/Baby experience this is a whole different animal.
    Hoping it will be a smooth transition and I love it as much as I think I will!

    I would say postpartum of all the inpatient specialties.
    It's soooo much less stressful than L&D for sure....
    I'd guess outpatient surgery would be relatively low stress but never worked it myself. (Especially if you have the job where you just admit the patients. I think that exists in some places)

    I sit to document and when I start IVs and sometimes when going over discharge papers.

    I have 3 years of L&D experience but I would still be terrified being the only OB nurse on the floor.
    I'm anxious just being the only nurse in the room during a delivery.
    Back-up is essential in L&D.
    No wonder you're anxious.
    It might be worth applying to bigger hospitals in L&D and if they ask why you're leaving so soon explain the situation and how you think you'd be more comfortable on a larger unit with more nurses around.
    And yes - I was anxious for months as a new grad on L&D. It's an intense unit and a lot can go wrong!

    I'm a HUGE Disney fan and have just decided that this is a dream job of mine.

    Has anyone looked into this or know anyone who was a nurse @ Disney?
    Would love to know how often jobs come up (I'd guess not often) what kind of background they look for, what type of duties they perform and how pay compares to hospitals.

    Thanks!
