UCLA vs HUP/UPenn advice
I am a new graduate nurse and have received job offers from both UCLA in Los Angeles and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvannia in Philadelphia in their cardiothoracic ICUs. Both are great opportunities and hospitals that I'd love to work at! And makes this one hard choice. I also have plans to get a master's degree, so I would probably attend the graduate school affilitated with the hospital.
UCLA would be a great place to live for a short time as a young adult, it is a great facility and practically the best hospital in the west. I worked there this past summer as an extern and am familiar with the staff and area. HUP would be closer to home since i'm from the east coast and UPenn is also a renowned hospital with a great grad school. I loved the unit when I went to go visit and the staff were very welcoming. It's tough!
Does anybody have any input on whether one choice may be better than the other? Any advice or opinions would be much appreciated
Thank you =)
