    Hello MeghanRN,

    Hey, nice to hear from you!
    I am hoping to do some work with "In Home Health" - visiting nurse. Per-diem with a flexiable schedule. They are located in the Milford Wellness Center. The main office is in Sparta, NJ.
    I am finding the application/interview process is talking along time.
    I also picked up an application for the Wellness Center. We shall see what pans out. I have the time during the day when the kids are in school but need to be available for after school activities. I tend to work at Newton just on the week-ends or will take call in the later part of the evening shift when my husband is home.
    I wish you the best with your job. Hang in there. The right hospital will come along and snatch you up. Unfortunatly you usually have to be willing to work the off hours...Are you liking the private duty? Some good experiences there, I am sure!
    Enjoy the sun! Soak it up for those of us up here in the NE corner of PA.

    Hi! second year at LCCC. I will graduate in May. I can not believe it. I live in Exeter, PA. Grew up in Hanover Twp. right next to W-B. Any one have any advice on where to apply locally? Would like to stick around for at least the next year.

    I graduated from LCCC in 2003! Great program! You guys are lucky, you don't have to wear the ugly uniforms that I had to! haha. At the time I lived in Nanticoke, about 1 mile from the college. Do you have Dr. Chipego or Mrs. Robine? They are the best! Good luck to you! I worked at First Hospital Wyoming Valley in the child/adolescent units. (Very close to exeter) for a year after graduation. I didn't learn many skills per say, but a great experience and was treated very well. (Compared to the local hospitals and nursing homes) If you are interested in psych nursing it is a great place! I only left due to getting married/moving. PM me if you would like to hear about where not to work. I now live up more northeast in PA in the boonies.

    It's nice to know there are others from this area. I live right between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. I've lived here all my life, and in my middle age I really am ready for a change, if only Hubby and I could gather up the guts to move! (We are in love with northeast Tennessee!)

    I am seriously considering moving to Milford, Pa- was just there today to check out the town- I did an immunization clinic up there and loved it. the people were very nice. the scenery was beautiful. and seems like a more affordable place to live not to mention the peacefulness. I presently live 2.5 hours south of Milford. How are the nursing opportunities up around there. I have both my PA and NJ license. I really want to get out of this Philly area, I can't stand it anymore. The property taxes here in NJ are killing us. and the attitudes- they practically throw your grocery bags at you and boot you out the door, you get the evil eye if you are slow loading up the grocery cart- totally rude.
