Looking For Other Pa Nurses!!!!

  1. 2
    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.

    I work in PA- but i'm not that recent of a grad. I teach 4 days a week, do every othe weekend 3-11 in a hospital, and play around with my NP a couple of evenings in the week for a semi-retired physician.

    I hated grad school- but what can you say.

    What part of PA do you work in?

    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.

    Graduated '96. Pgh area, hospice for 3 months and loving it. Was trying to get other Western Pa nurses together for dinner, but lately have been very distracted with family issues, mostly resolved now. See http://allnurses.com/forums/showthre...threadid=29214
