I live in Spring (just north of Houston for those who are elsewhere in Tx), and I will be graduating with my ADN in May 2009. It doesn't look like the 2 hospitals out here that I really wanted to work at will be hiring GN's over the summer (at least that I know of) and I have really been thinking about applying for jobs in the medical center.
Really, the only thing that bothers me about it would be the awful commute... and I can't relocate for at least 6 months to a year after I graduate. However, I have been giving a lot of thought to what great experience it would be.
Does anyone live really far and drive there every day? Know of any carpooling groups or anything like that? I've also been looking into the Woodlands park and ride. I know it goes to the medical center. Does anyone use it?
I am really starting to think it might be worth it to go down there. Thanks! : )
And yes, I know a lot of the hospitals down there want BSN's, but I have found some places saying they take ADN's, plus I am going to be getting my BSN as soon as possible.. I have already completed all of the pre-reqs.
