Hello fellow nurses!
Just wondering how's working for Northern Health B C like, particularly at F ort St. J ohn h ospital? heard that it'll take about ~1year for a new grad nurse to transition from medsurg floor to ICU/ER depending on their interests. That sounds a great opportunity. Need your input and advice

Thanks for your insightful feedback. You definitely have a valid point there! Now I really have to think hard to go or not to go
I suggest at least choosing a hospital with 100+ beds, because you are not going to see some of the medical cases as a nurse in a rural setting (if you are into rural health nursing then it's fine but I think for ICU nurses you need to be exposed to all sorts of scenarios). My hospital has 600 beds and our ER can't even give TPA and treat stroke patients so we send them to the bigger cities in Vancouver... so yep. Really think about your choices.
