Hi everyone, my name is Patty (OR nurse) and my husband is in the Coast Guard. We are getting transferred to Sewickley, PA in June.
We planned on renting a house close to the Sewickley area and I'm just not sure about the travel time involved if I worked in Pittsburgh. I've looked online and found several hospitals North of Pittsburgh, but there were many that were in the city. I would appreciate any information that you can give me about which hospitals to consider. I would like to keep the travel time under 30 minutes.
Nice meeting you all!

Thanks for your reply.
I did see the one in Sewickley......that would be nice.
It really doesn't matter if it's a large or small hospital, it could even be a surgery center. My husband is not always home and we have children, so my main concerns are daytime, no weekends and no call in the OR. I know I'm asking for a lot! LOL I may have to go Staffing Pool in order to do this, but I don't mind working the 40 hour week.
My experience consists of all services except open heart. It's been a while since I worked Neuro and Ortho though. For the last 2 years it's been mainly General and Gyn. I have done Endoscopy within the last 3 years too.
We should be coming up to house hunt the first week in June. We haven't been to Sewickley yet, but my husband is from New Castle. I have been there for a visit and loved everything the area has to offer! We can hardly wait to get there! LOL
