Hello from Western PA. I work in small community hospital as a Quality and Education Coodinator. I oversee orientation of new staff member of all disciplines and am currently helping prepare everyone for JCAHO visit next year. I have been in nursing 22yrs mostly open heart and cath lab. Nursing has served me well over the years especially while raising my 3 children. I am very proud of our profession.

I would love to hear from anyone who has done preparation for JCAHO as this is my first experience other than as a staff nurse.

Nursing student living in the Philly burbs (lovely Narberth). Grateful for this bulletin board b/c the experienced nurses here have been so kind to us enthusiastic newbies. Haven't narrowed down to a specialty yet. While ER nursing sounds great, OR, CCU, Med-Surg, etc., etc. sound good too.

Hi! I live in little Adams County and work in York County at a small hospital. I do Ob. Overall, I love it though of course there are ups and downs. I am hooked on the Ob forum. I am 38 years old and have 3 daughters. I am thinking about a master's program in ob or nursing ed. I'd like to hear anyone's thoughts about/experiences with online programs or York College. Glad to meet you all.
