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.
I'm about two hours East of Pittsburgh, but far from being a new grad. I work all nights in ICU. I also have relatives near Philly and York, and usually visit there several times a year.

Not a recent grad but work in a rural community ER in North Central PA. Truly has a touch of" family" with staff, MDs and administration. Complete with all the squabbles that go along with an "extended family" but all in all a great place to work. This is home to the "Pennsylvania Grand Canyon".
Anyone for hiking, canoeing, fishing or camping? [or lots of snow at the present ; it'll probably be around till May! sigh!! ]
