  1. Hello all

    I am considering a move to Bucks county during the summer. I am presently in the process of considering a CNA position where I presently live in the Lehigh Valley area. They train you for the position and then hire you. My problem is that my husband and I are considering moving within the next 3 to 4 months because of family issues. I have no family around where I live and no friends and it is very hard especially when you have a 1 year old. Sometimes I need help because of school and work and my husband works retail so he is barely home. Moving to Bucks will cut his travel town from 1 hr and 15 min to about 45-50 minutes but I would have to travel for about 1 hr and 20 minutes to work in Lehigh hospital.And not to mention I have no friends to talk to so I'm pretty much a loner and miss my friends and family. The move to bucks would bring me closer to family and friends who lives in Mid New Jersey. I want to move some where that has great opportunities for future nurses who would like to continue their education while working in a hospital environment. I know most hospitals want at least 1 year experience but I would only have 3 maybe 4. Also, we were considering Morrisville, P.A. Does anyone know about this area or who could suggest area that is not to far from N.J in Bucks area, have a good hospital/School, and where I could meet new people....pretty much enjoy life because I don't right now. Thanks

    You will quickly make friends with the hospital workers. Most of the time they are friendly and like to socialize together.
    Working as a CNA will introduce you to hospital work. The next step I would take is to become an LPN, work at that for a little while, then advance to RN. By the time you reach RN, you will be a well seasoned nurse.
    When ready to advance to nurse, Inquire at:

    Helene Fuld School of Nursing
    Cheeseman Road
    Blackwood NJ 08012
    (856) 374-0100

    Good Luck !

    Thank you for the response. I hope I will make new friends at the hospital but I'm afraid that I will be so focussed on work that I wont have time to socialize. I guess I will just have to wait and see.
