    I'm afraid my daughter and her fiancee are going to do the same. We will most likely never move back. We are at a stage of life where with his job we can live anywhere in the US and of course me being a nurse isn't an issue. Now we have a 13yr old at home so we are most likely to stay here till he graduates, they have a great school district and have a lot of healthy activities for the youth. We enjoyed our visit home this past weekend, great to watch the Steelers among Steeler fans and they beat the Bengals, yeah! The leaves are beautiful this time of year.

    I think I may have responded to this post a few years back, but will do so again to say hello to all the other PA nurses . Im still working agency nursing (Nursestaffing aka KForce) in the Pittsburgh area, most recently at the Allegheny County Jail............What an experience! I never realized that jail was so large! I enjoy the workers there, and they have been so helpful to me in the last several weeks I have been there. Real life issues have been in the way lately, and havent posted in the past few yrs....Hopefully that will change.:typing

    I am a NICU nurse working in the Lehigh Valley and living in the Poconos. I work twelve-hour nights. I graduated from Cedar Crest College in Allentown in January 2006 and have been in the NICU ever since.

    I have a younger sister who lives in Nuangola, but her snail mail addy is Mountaintop, and she shops in Wilkes-Barre.

    Also, I used to go to church in Mount Pocono.

    Not yet but that is where I will be going. How's the entrance exam???

    Thanks!! Kim
    Hi Kim. I'm currently at the end of level 2 at CTC Lackawanna County. the entrance exam wasn't bad, although time management was a small issue. I ran out of time with about 25 questions left in the subjective section, which wasn't a prob because the interview went extremely well(i was told this post acceptance). there was a fairly in depth english comp and math section as i remember-although it seems like a decade ago. Each testing class had around 40 ppl in it, which they held 6 testing dates to fill 46 seats for the June '09 class. We are currently 2 weeks from the end of level 2 and we are down to 27(we lost 3 this week-1 to emergency illness) I think we may be finished losing students to educational insufficiencies but there are a bunch of students who are maxed out on time missed. Good luck and hold on...it's a fun ride!:uhoh21:

    I checked on our intranet for MH jobs and there are jobs at 3 or 4 UPMC facilities available for RN's.
