Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre PA

Posted

I am thinking amount moving to work at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa. Does anyone work their or a hospital near by, who can tell me about that hospital or another one and what it is like to live there? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :lol2:

I live in Elmira, NY apx 15 miles West of Sayre. That's a great hosp. Also nearby is Arnot Ogden Med Center in Elmira. Ithaca, NY is apx 40 miles NW. Binghamton, NY apx 40 miles E. Watkins Glen apx 30-40 miles NW. Of course the Finger Lakes & wineries are nearby. Wellsboro PA is beautiful, "Home of the PA Grand Canyon". Corning, NY apx 40miles W. It would be easier to describe if I knew what area you are in now, but I think it's a beautiful area; Especially in the Fall, lots of countryside.

NRSKarenRN, BSN, RN

Specializes in Vents, Telemetry, Home Care, Home infusion. Has 43 years experience.

Moved to PA forum for best advice...

I have worked for RPH for a long time - have also worked other hospitals in the area. I would be happy to talk with you about work and the area. It is beautiful here. Easy access to cities - you can live in the country easily. Not alot of traffic to deal with. Kind of the best of both worlds. RPH is a progressive, teaching environment. Lots going on! Also a Magnet hospital. Remail me if you need more info!

I would love any information you could give me about Robert Packer Hospital. I am familiar with the Troy and Tioga area. i have being considering Robert Packer Hospital. Does the hospital have a NICU or a large ICU?

What hospital do you currently work at?

There is a NICU at Arnot Ogden in Elmira, NY

Thank you. I really want to work in NICU or ICU. I possibly want to be a CRNA one day. Does Robert Packer offer a good tuition reimbursement program?

We do have a tuition reimbursement program. What degree do you have right now? Do you have work experience?

I am 6 classes away from having my BSN and I currently work as a RN on a Respiratory Floor.
