  11. Anyone from Toledo to help me compare

    You guessed it~ Owens. I will be precepting at St. V's. I haven't received my preceptor or assignment yet. I requested the intermediate med-surg floor. I would like to work ICU eventually, but my plan is to get a year or so of med-surg under my belt....

  15. Hi Jen- Thanks for the info. No, I really never considered Peds- I think I would be too emotional as I have two young children. I am also looking at 6B and 7B/C(cardio/telem). I'm glad to hear that the new grad programs are good. That's the main thin...
