hi all,

am currently working here in england,uk. i'll be joining Newton-Wellesley Hospital(Massachusetts) as an RN soon, once am issued a visa. can u tell me more about the hospital esp USEN 6 ward, i know it's a friendly environment. Where is it best to live if working in this institution? How expensive is to live there?

thanks for paying attention to this enquiry. have a nice day

I currently work at NWH and i have to say that is a very nice hospital. Living in Newton can be VERY expencive but the hospital is closed to two highways so if you drive you can take those (parking is free). About 6 usen don't know much...i rotated once there and it seems like one of the best floors. good luck

hi, thanks for the info. i've been reading loads about NWH and i'm lovin it. Yah, everything i've read about Newton says very expensive..i think i'll be ok, it's just like living in London again but obviously Newton has more to offer i reckon. The only thing i don't see in the web is/are pictures of the hospital..........do you know any website?

thanks you ever so much. ta!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The train station (green line) is within walking distance of newton wellesly.

I don't know much about NWH, but I do consider myself qualified to talk about the surrounding area, since I grew up in Brookline, one of the towns bordering Newton. Newton itself has its more densely populated parts (ie- Newton Corner and West Newton), but on a whole its (probably) more suburban than London- in the sense that it isn't a large metropolis (like London or New York). I guess it all depends on what you're looking for. If you have kids and want to raise a family, Newton is a nice city to live in- it's been named one of the safest cities in America in the recent past.

If you're looking for a nice mix of urban and suburban, Brookline (especially the north side of town) is a great place to live. The south of Brookline is also nice, but more suburban, and much less accessible by T. Brookline is, on a whole, very safe, and is actually quite diverse for a town with a median income of $92,000. There are no "bad parts" per se, and I felt very safe growing up there. Brookline has a good mix of families and young professionals living within close proximity of each other. There are lots of interesting bars and restaurants, and everything one needs is relatively close-by. The C and D Green lines go right through the north side of town, making it easy to go into Boston if one wishes (or out to Route 128/Newton/Weston- where the D line ends). The town has an excellent school system, and consistently turns out many students who pursue prestigious higher education endeavors. I went to elementary and high school there, so I experienced the schools first-hand. As with Newton, the cost of living is high, but in sense, you really get what you pay for- Newton and Brookline are both great places to live. As you may gather, I'm biased about my town, but I sincerely loved growing up there, and would recommend living there in a heartbeat. Hope this helps.

I'm sure you've found it already, but the website of the local public transit system is:

http://www.mbta.com As is probably true in London, public transit makes in much easier to get to places without having to fight traffic- although the schedules and occasional delays can be a pain at times. The Boston area is known for its rude drivers, so taking the T to places (if possible) is, at times, preferable to driving (esp if you commute during rush-hour).

On the international forums, nurses are stating that because of retrogression it is close to impossible to get a visa. IS the hospital sponsoring you?

Newton Wellesley is great hospital. I am a bit surprised they are recruiting since hard economic times are coming and in some Boston area hospitals are laying off nurses and other hospitals have hiring freezes. I believe NWH is union and first in is first out when times are tough.

Best of luck NWH is a great place and the area is a wonderful

area. Expect London prices , but you will have to pay for healthcare which is an expensive and something your government provides. Also your time off is limit

hi mate,

thank you ever so much for this info. I've got Newton and Brookline in mind, they are at present my top priority. might consider looking into them once we are there. Am married and have a 7 year old son, places like this with good schools, i think is the best place to go.

Nice to know place is accessible to train.

thanks once again:up:

hi yah!

That's right, NWH is sponsoring me, got offered the position over six months ago. About retrogression, i think year 2005 applicants are the ones being processed at the moment, a bit slow but hopefully everything will change real soon.............fingers crossed............

I read articles about NWH, it seems to be a very friendly and nice hospital that is why i applied there. Am currently working in a civilian/military hospital, i love it in here but going to NWH sounds more promising. Greatest problem in here is you have to pay car park to work but most of the time you spend half - an hour finding a space and still can't find one so u end up parking your car anywhere finding it difficult to find your car at the end of the shift, worst in a late shift.

thanks for this info....it gives me more and more ideas about the place

goodluck as we'll and enjoy your day

hi mate,

thanks to know there are places less expensive.

I bet NWH is a nice institution. Am sure i will like it there too. am actually excited, can't wait any longer....

What types of patients are being looked after in USEN 6, do you know?

thanks ever so much....love to hear again from you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To live in the less expensive towns, you will need a car. With a car you need to register the car and pay taxes.

Hi!

You're going to love Newton-Wellesley! I worked there for over 10 years.

It is probably the finest community teaching hospital you can find and always ranks highly in national surveys.

Yes, the Newton area is very expensive, but more affordable housing is in Natick and the commute is only 10 - 15 minutes approximately.

NWH photos can be found if you do a google web search. Look for hospitals "Newton-Wellesley Hospital" in the images section.

Usen 6 is the highest floor in the west wing of the hospital. You get a view of the Woodland Golf Club where helicopters land for the hospital! Technically speaking, you'll be in good company. And the hospital had a recent capital campaign resulting in state-of-the-art emergency facilities.

The community really loves NWH and there are many long term employees.

I've lived in Natick, Wellesley, Needham, and Westwood and all these towns offer easy commutes to the hospital.

I think you and your son will LOVE living here!:typing
