    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.

    Any where near the Pittsburgh area? I've been in LTC for (gasp) comming up on 10 years..9 as an RN and worked as a CNA while in school. Welcome to the group!!

    Hello all,

    Still a student as of now, but I graduate in 4 months (May 2005). I'll be working in the Lehigh Valley Area on M/S/Telem unit. Most people on this thread seem to be from the Pittsburg and Philly area...considering there are more ppl in general in the city that makes sense : )

    I live north of Pittsburgh and currently work in a large LTC, alzheimers and subacute facility. Been a nurse for 11 years now and have worked most of the critical care departments including being on a specialty transport team. It would be nice to get together for lunch with some other nurses from the area.

    Hi, I am a fairly new RN that just got out of med-surg, worked in it for 8 months. I am a new hire at a hospital in Philadelphia for the ER department. I am excited but very intimidated. I worked in the Cardiac Ultrasound field for yrs prior to going back for nursing. Anyhow, I need some guidance if you would. I start this position in a week and I will be doing a massive amount of reading. The nursing coordinator and head of ER want to "mold" me into a supernurse.....I don't mind, love to read, but I want to start on my own. Is there a basic book to start me out that won't make me go...."Am I really retarded because this is over my head".Could you help me out? Would love to converse with any other ER nurses or critical care nurses also because I will eventually have to obtain my ACLS. Thanks so much! Bindy

    I just grad this past August.. work in Hollidaysburg, but grew up about 40 minutes outside of Philly, near New Hope & Washingtons Crossing. I work 2nd shift in a LTC facility, although it's not my niche, so I'm keeping my eyes & ears open.

    [QUOTE=veetach]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[/QUOTE
    Where do you work?? I too live in c burg. I work at washington county hospital in hagerstown. Tried it at c burg hospital and didn't care for the politics!!!
