To answer your question. There is no best hospital, I never heard of such a thing. There might be a really good unit within a hospital and thats it.
NO, I am currently in California. Shands as in Gainesville, FL pay is crap. Never asked people I know about the working conditions. I just didn't understand getting paid like that. Move around in California. Don't waste your time moving to FL unless its for love.
cali. working conditions in FL suck right along with the pay.
Go to the travel section and PM Ned.
Are you ready for your patients to talk to you? Are you ready for more than one patient? Are you ready to pass medications? Juggle between 4 patients at a time? Are you ready to discharge? Are you ready to triage? If you answered yes to all these questions then you are ready to be an ER nurse. Good luck. Change is good for everyone. You learn about yourself more when you change things up.
That is what I left to become a nurse! Not gonna lie though... I have some regrets! I joke with my coworkers that if I could do it all over I would just be a night shift grocery stocker talking to my cans of beans all night.
If science is what you're interested in have you considered clinical trials?
I am currently trying to figure out how I can work from home and then ultimately the Caribbean. So far case management and telephone triage seem to be the only possible portals. I need to do some HW on big pharma opportunities as well.
