I did a travel assignment at Tri-City in their ICU from 1/04-7/04. 22 beds, good variety of clinical issues (the only ICU in the hospital), nice hospital, nice people, occassional float (once every 7-8 shifts) to the telemetry unit (4 patients)-they're nice up there, as well. If you go, say hello to Willie, Charla, Andrew, Corinne, Donna, Genny, etc. (night crew). I had a very good experience there. Oceanside itself is not much to speak of-if you have a choice, live further south-Carlsbad (10 minutes south on THE 5), or further-much nicer cities as you go south. Good luck!!
