    Hi there all! I'm a newbie RN, after 11 years as an LPN. It's nice to see posts with familiar, close-to-home topics!
    I live between Johnstown and Somerset.........just minutes away from "the Mine" where the 9 miners were trapped and rescued.
    Anyone have any updates on where our state legislature is with any labor/staffing bills relating to nursing? I just joined the PSNA.....maybe I'll get some updates from them......
    Hi DV: Glad to hear you joined PSNA. You will be able to access much info on legislative issues important to nursing right on the website: http://www.psna.org Also, sign up for the listserv there and you will get email messages on current events. There are many important bills in PA legislature, including mandatory OT, whistleblower protection, title recognition for CNS. It's a great time to get active!

    I graduated from York Hospital in '79 (now Wellspan) when it was still a diploma program. Would love to hear from other grads from there, also anyone working at the hospital now. Even tho I live in the south now I still miss PA.

    Hi Pa Nurses! I was born in Phila and raised in Cheltenham, PA, which may as well be conisdered Philadelphia. I went to Temple (for a BS and then my BSN), worked at Temple and really miss Temple!!! I had to move because of my husband's job and I have since worked in MD( in CCU), which was really nice. While I worked in MD, I would drive to PA every other weekend and do PRN at Temple while my husband was moonlighting as a resident at another area hospital. I learned a lot there and met many great people there. I still visit whenever I go back home. We're in TN right now and moving to NC (permanently, finally) in July. But, no matter where we live, my greatest experiences were at Temple. (Oh, I met my husband there, too ).

    Hello! Long-time nurse here, about 75 miles north of pittsburgh. Doing supervisory work at nursing home right now. Am hitting the wall lately. Feel real burned out. Never thought I would consider getting out of nursing, but am at that point now........
    Anyone out there with some help for a nurse of 20 years, kids, bills, no other idea what to do? anyone ?
    how about home health? i found it to be a totaly different way of nursing, much more relaxed. you take one pt at a time and you almost feel like your own boss most of the time.
    also i have heard of several RN's going into pharmacutical (sp?) sales and getting good pay and liking it.

    ----
    i'm in the pittsburgh subburbs also, but i'm doing med/surg prn float duty in a hosp. right now. i like it most of the time... but you know nursing is always more than bedside work! i graduated in AR, and have worked in TN, OH and PA.

    so where and when for lunch??? count me in!

    Hello all,

    I'm taking this chance to meet other nurses in PA. Who knows, maybe I've meant some of you. I graduated a year ago, and meant a lot of other nursing students in clinicals, and such.

    Anyway, if you're interested in joining this discussion to meet others in PA who are recent grads., leave some comments.

    Anyway, I'm wondering what kinds of hours everyone else is working, where people are working, what kinds of skills you're all learning, and your current job satisfaction, etc. Right now, I work quite a number of hours in a cardiovascular surgical unit. It's pretty good experience. Sometimes I find I get taken advantage of to work a lot of hours, but most times I don't mind, cuz I get a lot of good experience. I may move on to CRNA school someday. Any body else have grad. school aspriations?

    Anyway, if you're a recent grad. or from PA, join the discussion, and let people know what's out there for new grads.

    Thanks,

    Hello, all! I might have a potential move to Philadelphia coming up, and I know virtually nothing about Pennsylvania, let alone Philadelphia. More of a country girl than a city girl even tho I am working in New Haven, CT right now. Working in an MICU currently (only for the last 3 months), though I have been an RN for 5 years (med/surg). If anyone could reply or PM me any info whatsoever, it would be greatly appreciated... Interested in finding out good places to work in the Philadelphia area, good places to live, how much RN's make in the hospitals, anything anyone is willing to share. Thank you so much if you do help.... I will greatly appreciate it!

    WOW! am I the only nurse in southcentral PA who posts on this board? I live and work in Chambersburg, (30 mi from Gettysburg) in Franklin County. Oh I forgot, I work in a very busy ER...going into my 8th year in the ER (11 years in nursing) I should have my head examined.

    I am not a native Pennsylvanian, nor am I new to nursing. Originally a westerner (born in Montana and raised in Colorado) I have found that I am tooooo far from the mountains! :chuckle

    Hello! I Live and work in western PA. I work as RN/Supervisor in a local nursing home. Not a new grad,either. I've been working almost 5 years as an RN now. I worked as a nurse's aide prior to that. I'd also love to hear from fellow nurses in PA.
