Has anyone ever worked at this hospital? I'm being submitted here. It would be my first assignment. My recruiter has definitely made it sound like a great place. I've never been to that part of the country either. Thanks for any advice related to this!!

They have used a lot of travelers in the past. Cape Cod is big on tourism - in the summer! It is going to be deserted this time of year, but at least the housing prices should be decent. Housing costs may be an issue if you want to extend into summer - traffic will be bad too.

I've never worked there, but I am from the Cape. If you have any questions about the area feel free to ask! It's very different to actually live there than to vacation there. People from the Cape are usually friendly, although we can be a bit hostile towards tourists at times. Hyannis is the commercial center for the region, so you'll be close to the malls, movie theater, restaurants, etc. It is denser than the rest of the Cape, and will have some life during the winter/spring. June-August is the heavy tourist season, and it becomes a different place. It's also only an hour and a half from both Boston and Providence without traffic.

I do know some people that enjoyed working there and they do have a fairly strong union. Get ready to see a lot of geriatrics!!

Thanks! This contract would actually start mid-may, gearing up for tourist season. I've never been to the area and it sounds interesting!

That's the best time of year you could be there. You will really enjoy it. Rent may be expensive around that time but you can find a small cottage to stay in; you'll spend most of your time not working at the beach anyways.
