I am relocating to the Washington DC/NoVa area from Scottsdale AZ in Summer 2010.
I currently work as a Telemetry Nurse, RN-BSN and will most likely stay in that genre.
Wondering what the average nursing patient ratio looks like in an acute hospitals in that area.
My floor is a 4:1, and we are also a Step-Down ICU floor, that take ventilators and trachs. So, we get the really sick. Lots of CABG's, pacers, and caths. Wondering what the tele scene looks like out on the East.
Also, any places that are great or places to avoid. Looking for something off the metro, as we will be living in the Alexandria, VA area.
Any advice, tips, etc are greatly appreciated! It's a whole new ballgame for me!
