    Possibly Moving to NM

    My dad grew up on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico! Good to know of someone who lives and works in Albuquerque & enjoys it. Thank you! I am looking forward to a new start! I have a lease on my apartment that goes till June next year so I have some time to figure things out.

    That is awesome that your son was born with the help of a midwife! Interesting stuff! Well I am looking forward to at least visiting NM this fall/Winter 😊 Probably around November or December.

    Possibly Moving to NM

    Hello! I am a PCU RN with 3 years of experience. I am considering relocating to NM! I am from South-central Indiana. So far, I’m looking at Santa Fe. I have never been to NM. I have family in NM, but I don’t want to live in Hobbs. My deceased father grew up in NM, which is part of why I am thinking about going there. I also have family in Texas and California. I’m super excited to take a trip to NM this fall/Winter. Albuquerque sounds like it has some high crime, but I will probably drive through there too, just to check it out. Any recommendations? Any hospitals or cities in NM that you recommend? Thank you so much!
  4. Hello! I'm in my last year of nursing school in an ASN Program and trying to think ahead to my next steps. Assuming I graduate & pass boards... lol.... I'm wondering if you all would recommend going RN to BSN then MSN.. or just RN-MSN. I think that I want to eventually become a pediatric nurse practitioner (love the idea of learning more and also having autonomy). The MSN program I'm looking at has a 2 year requirement of experience before you can even be admitted to the MSN program (if I were to do the RN-MSN track) so I'm thinking I should just do the RN-BSN before that and then figure out if peds is REALLY what I want to do. I'm sure it will be very different than school! I LOVE children though and really feel drawn to that specialty but am still open and figuring out where I should apply next spring... I hear a lot about how it's good to start out working on Med Surg floors as a new grad. So I'm thinking about applying to Riley on the peds med surg unit ... getting my BSN (I already have a bachelor's degree in a liberal arts major so I have the general ed requirements) ... and going from there.... Also - how would you describe peds nurses? I know it's not good to *stereotype* specialties, but I'm curious what qualities and characteristics are important for pediatric nurses - - & what seasoned nurses see and recognize in real world peds nurses.... Thank you in advance!
