Looking for a great PACU in Santa Clara/San Jose area

  1. Hi all. :-)

    I am looking to relocate to the SJ area and also to find a permanent PACU position that I can call my home. I currently work in PACU in the SF area and really like where I work. The staff and management is great, awesome hours (0630-1900 3 days a week), I work in different areas various days (ie, pre-op, childrens surgery, and then the adult PACU), no weekends, holidays, or nights for me. We do have mandatory on call weekend time but there are so many people here who want the OT that you never have to do on call if you don't want to. I just am not looking foward to the commute.

    Does anyone currently work in a PACU that they love. I'd love to hear more about your work environment and pros/cons of the place. Thanks :-D

    Are you saying you commute from San Jose to San Fran everyday and that's why you want to move to San Jose?

    I currently live in SF area but will be moving to Morgan Hill summer time. The closest hospitals that I would want to work at would be in SJ. If I were to commute from MH, it would take me 1 1/2 hr with no traffic each way. So if I could, I would rather not commute. I commuted for about 3 months and hated it. Any info about any PACU in SJ area would be helpful. Thanks :-)

    Sorry, I wish I could help. I asked b/c if you were open to move to anywhere, I've worked in various hospitals all over Cali in the PACU. However, unfortunately, none in San Jose which it seems is where you need to be. Good luck.
