  2. Moving to Pittsburgh
    Let me say, do NOT expect to make nearly what you would be making in NYC. Some hospitals in the Pitt area start out around 18 an hour. Most of the areas you want to get into do require some...

  15. Need RN credits transfer help so badly to a college that will accept them.
