I am returning home to the Allentown area after 7 years abroad working as a nurse in the UK. I graduated from nursing school
in the Lehigh Valley and went abroad not long afterwards so I'm out of the loop a bit.
Does anyone have any opinions on which hospitals over there are decent places to work? Some people tell me Lehigh Valley is the best and others say St. Luke's is better. I am hoping I can to get a full time job at either LVH, or St. Luke's but I have been out of the country for so long that I am looking for a place with a brilliant orientation. This would help me get used American hospitals once again.
I'll be flying over to visit my parents in a couple of months and was going to see of I can shadow a nurse/observe for a shift at one or both hospitals to see what I think. Is that allowed? I do have a Pennsylvania nursing license.
If anyone has time to give me some advice I would appreciate it very much.
