Most represented state on this board??

  1. It seems to me there are a lot of nurses from Pittsburgh on this BB. I was wondering if they know each other. ? Or maintaining anonymity...I was curious if we could have a poll with the nurses clicking on their respective states and see which states have the highest percentages. ? Do the larger states have the largest percentages? Or is participation based on word of mouth? Or what? Just curious. And it seems somme states aren't represented at all....

    PA has long been known as an "exporter" of nurses. Historically, many hospitals, many nursing schools. In the past, PA produced more nurses than it had jobs for. Don't know if this is still true.

    Why don't we start a poll? Can you have 50 questions on the poll? I've never done one

    I am one of the Pittsburgh folks. Don't know any of the others other then from here.
    There are tons of hospitals as Zee said. I don't even know where the others work.
    It would make an interesting poll if it can be done.

    There is a poll over in the Poll section regarding this but the limit on choices in the poll is 10 so you choose the area of the country your state is in--PA would fall under Northeast US.
