I'm an ACNP student and I'd like to set up an away rotation someplace. This wouldn't be for another year or so, but I'm starting to think about these things. My main interests in doing this would be a) to get a perspective outside of where I currently live/work and b) to possibly get some exposure/training someplace that is really excellent/cutting edge/uses ACNPs really effectively. My primary interests are either trauma or cardiothoracic surgery with the critical care aspects of both being more interesting to me than the floor/clinic. I'm a part-time student and work a regular job and have a wife and two small kids, so I'd be looking for something that would allow the flexibility of a shorter stay away from home (I'd be more than willing to work extra long day/extra days/week to make up for a shorter stay).
Anyone work at a place/know of a place that would be somewhere to really consider? A third benefit to this would be in possibly making contacts for future jobs after graduation. My family and I would possibly be interested in moving when I'm done with school. So, anyplace near the coast or in a good area for raising a family would be a plus (but not necessary if it's a good teaching/learning environment!).
