My very first nursing job was at CPMC, a San Francisco Sutter hospital. I would DO ANYTHING to have that job back. I wish I never left. I was paid very well and paid zero dollars for my health insurance. I made some of my best friends there and the comraderie on the unit was wonderful. I now live on the east coast and make half as much money and pay a fortune for my health benefits, out of my pay, even though I am a staff nurse for the hospital. Its crazy. Those Cali nurses dont know how good they've got it. As soon as I can, I am running back to the good life over there!!!
