Hello all! I am currently in my last couple weeks of nursing school. I graduate May 8th and I've accepted my first job as an RN and I start June 8th on a busy Med/Surg floor. I'm very excited because I've been working on the same floor as a tech for a year now. I've grown to know the staff, computer systems, and improved my direct care skills.
After two years of gaining experience and earning my BSN, my partner and I plan on moving to a new state and starting our lives. We are both young and have jobs that facilitate our lifestyle. I'm writing this thread because I am wanting to know how it was transfering your license and starting a new nursing job in another state. How different were the patient loads, policies, hospital environments, etc.? We are looking at New York or Maryland.
