    Should I take this travel assignment?

    Thanks for responding, you guys. I thought about it, and as much as I do value being in the SICU, I feel I would have more freedom financially with this assignment, to pay down my loans and etc. (I'm pretty underpaid at the moment as a staff nurse.) It seems that most agencies are uniform in saying that after getting through the first one, all other assignments come by without difficulty, so this would open the door for me to return to the ICU on my next job, or even as a staff nurse somewhere else. Thanks everybody.

    Should I take this travel assignment?

    Hey folks! I wanted to seek out your collective advice, if you'd be kind enough to help out. I've been considering traveling for a while, and have decided to explore some opportunities. I currently working in a Surgical ICU. I have a little less than a year's experience in critical care, but over a year as a RN altogether. While I would l love to remain in my ICU speciality, I've been offered my first assignment in a stepdown unit at a nearby hospital, which would pay me almost three times what I earn now. However, I would ultimately like to go to CRNA school and so I want to be able to eventually return to the ICU after this assignment. My questions for you guys are: - do you think I should take this assignment? - if I were to take this stepdown assignment, do you think I would still be allowed to accept ICU assignments in other hospitals in the future? Thanks guys!

    I'm also applying to the residency at Swedish. They've told me that the new dates for February will be up in November.

    Johns Hopkins 2015 ABSN & Masters Entry

    Wow, congrats. Which do you want to go to more? When are their start dates? If you can wait, it might just be a good idea for you to hold your space at one of these schools until JHU begins sending out decisions in a few months. I'd have really loved to go to JHU, but I think I'll apply for a nurse residency there after I'm done with my ABSN in December.

    University of Rochester ABSN Spring 2015

    I didn't apply for it. It was included with my acceptance. I found out about it when they called me to tell me that I'm in.

    You can find places on Craigslist easily, but if you're inclined otherwise, you can check out the Off-Campus Housing Affairs site of the UW. It's a great resource for outside apartments or houses that are advertised through UW. They're not "UW-approved, or UW-affiliated" but it's a great place to start. Also, start looking pretty early. They fill up quickly.

    Oh I didn't know that. Well, I had to decide on the spot, since Rochester needed my deposit today and they're also giving me a substantial scholarship so I'll be going there. I'll have graduated by December and be able start my career sooner. It's nice to have gotten into the number program in the country though. Yay, everyone. Celebrate!
