Second Attempt...Philadelphia jobs


Hello everyone!

I am committed to moving to Philadelphia soon and the suburbs. I will be coming with 2 years of nursing experience and will be close to graduating with my BSN (couple of classes to go). I work on a busy cardiac floor. I'm looking at Abington, PA as a place to live, but I do have an aunt that works at Nazareth Hospital.

Is there anyone that can give me some information on the application of getting my license transferred from AZ to PA? Anyone out there that lives in these areas that can give me some information of good places to live/work? I have 2 small children.

I would appreciate any information!

Thank you so much in advance for your help! I can't wait to be a Philadelphia resident! :)
