How long is your commute?

  1. Call me crazy, but I am considering commuting to my next nursing job! (Still in school here, so I am just day dreaming) I live in NorthWest Florida where nursing jobs are a rare find, not to mention the low pay for Florida nurses. I actually commute now to Houston TX every other week for my flight attendant job. I am thinking about applying to some Level I and II hospitals out there, as a PRN, because I do have the benefits of stand by flying. I hope to work a day, two or three there and fly home. I do not want to move out of my paradise home..!

    Including the time it takes me to drop my son off at school, about 45 minutes, each way.

    35 miles. It takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on time of day. Seattle traffic can be brutal!! Oh and $15/day for parking!!

    7 min. Unless there is a snow storm then it's about 20 min.

    3 minutes, 5 if I take my time and listen to the radio.

    I put very few miles on my car per year, and can go two weeks between refueling.

    Literally about 30 seconds. 1 minute if traffic is heavy.

    3 miles.

    Free parking

    I park right in front of the side entrance to ICU, so it takes me a whopping 36 seconds to walk from my car to our unit

    Dang. Nice. My hospital is doing construction and we have to walk MILES. But, I have to give credit where it is due, my facility does not charge for parking either.
