    timeline for verification of license from PA BON

    Since you wrote this post 3.5 years ago, I'm wondering if PA has sent your license verification to CA yet?? I'm only half joking. I am in the same boat...trying to get PA to verify my license so I can obtain a CT RN license. I was told the *average* time frame was 30 BUSINESS days. That sounds ridiculous to me, as the states that participate with NURSYS take like 48hours! Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can get this ball rolling faster??
  2. I am a Certified Pediatric Registered Nurse with a love of Pediatric GI nursing. I am moving to Brookfield, CT over the summer and looking for a new job. Who do you consider to be good employers in the Danbury, CT area? I would love to stay in Pediatrics, but am trying to keep an open mind, as I know this niche is not always attainable. As an additional note--Nurses who are also moms: How do you make hospital shifts work with being there for your kids after school/daycare? Are there some hospitals (in the Danbury area) that don't have 12 hour shifts? What are other nursing jobs that are amenable to also being a present mother? Any advice and support is appreciated.
  3. Hello everyone, My young family and I are planning on relocating to the Phoenixville, Pa area (or thereabouts...definitely not within Philly proper; Chester Co most likely) from Westchester County, NY. We are relocating to achieve a better cost of living in an area with great public schools, to decrease our commuting time (currently at least 45min each way) and to live closer to family. I am a certified pediatric nurse (RN, BSN) and am interested in learning first hand tales about the nursing opportunities in the area. Can anyone recommend a great employer around there? I am a currently working in an ambulatory setting in peds GI (I work 8+ hr days, M-F, plus qo Saturday). I actually love peds GI--I don't assist in the endo suite--I do a lot of patient teaching re egd/colons, as well as disease management (IBD, eoe, celiac, etc). While I'd love a similar environment/schedule, I'm open to new things. I definitely prefer peds, regardless of subspecialty. I mainly just want to hear first hand accounts from nurses that work in the area--what you like, what you don't like. Please share the good and the bad! If you have any advice on life in the area (daycares, housing, etc), I'd love to hear that too. (Like all of you, I wear many hats and juggle many responsibilities as a Rn, mom, wife and would value any info you provide regarding life in PA r/t all my identities!!) Thank you so much!
