    Hi bjorklover,

    I'm hoping you'll see this - I just signed up for the site, so can't PM you, but have just been offered a new grad job at Bassett, and see that you work there as well. I know you spoke about it above, but I was hoping you could update me on how you still like it, what unit you work on, how much you think you've learned, and last of all, how you found the transition from NYC to the very rural, remote area. I'm strongly considering accepting the position because I absolutely love the unit, manager, and nurses, but it sure would be good to hear from someone else from NYC who made the transition.

    Also, how easy was it relocating in terms of finding a place to live, etc? I know the manager said most nurses don't live right there in Cooperstown because it's sort of a ritzy vacation second-home place, but live in the surrounding towns.

    Anyway, thank you SO much - I know I've bombarded you with questions, and hope you'll see this! Have a great day....

    All my best,
    PA

    Hey girl yeah I like it up here. The job is not bad. Up here is ok does get lonely at times. Rent canbe anywhere fro 500-1000. I would definitely come up because you need experience. I don't think I have enough posts to pm either . And I'm on phone right now so I can't seem to figure it out right now

    Thanks so much! I really appreciate the fast reply. Maybe I'll see you up there. How did you go about finding a place to live? my default is to only use craigslist and there are places listed there but I'm wondering if there's a more logical way to do it...real estate agency or whatever.

    I promise that's my last question - thanks so much again!

    I live in Syracuse. Upstate medical hires new grads. It's a good place to be. Winters can be a little rough because of lake effect snow but in general roads are kept clear and things rarely shut down. There's also 3 other hospitals not affiliated with upstate medical in the area. Look for upstate.edu on the web and follow the job links.

    Also try Arnot Ogden in Elmira NY. Just moved from there and they are hiring too. Not as great an area as Syracuse, but a good place to get experience.

    Rents in either place run 500 - 1000, with some of the higher rents including all utilities..
