I want to work in a level 1 trauma! But not necessarily in Virginia?

  1. I'm graduating from BSN school in December and am trying to narrow down places to apply. So far I am looking at Sentara Norfolk General and University of Virginia since they are easy to visit, magnet rated, and are level 1 trauma centers. Anyone have any experience with either place or can compare the two?

    I'm also willing to move anywhere... someone brought up University of Colorado-Denver. Or if you have suggestions on how to appropriately prepare (a nursing manager recommended to get a copy of Sheehy's emergency nursing). I've attended a few emergency nurses association meetings and they are tons of fun.

    I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's giving me lots of energy!

    THANKS!
