Hello Allnurses members!!! I am a NICU RN and I want to relocate to DC to advance my career. I am looking at applying to Georgetown university Hospital and Children's National Medical Center. I have a quesion though. I am a single mother and I found that my biggest challenge is having adequate childcare for my children who are ages 12, 9 and 5. I would need before and after school care. More than likely I will need some nights and weekends also. I was wondering are there other single parent nurses here who have dealt with this issue and could be real with me. I was also wondering what the child care situation is like there specifically, how long does it stay open or if any of the hospital there provide childcare services for their employees. This would be a great help for me because this is my biggest concern. That and where to live! If you have any childcare providers that you have used or can recommend that would be helpful also. I am planning on taking a trip there next week. I am a visual person and I need to see things for myself. Can anyone help me with this? I promise all your help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for you help!
Peace and :redpinkhe to you all!
Oh yeah, I am planning to relocate there October 15th so I have a while!!!
