    I've been stung by a scorpion. I've killed many scorpions. It's really not that bad.



    The job market in AZ is far scarier than scorpions, IMHO.

    I know crickets are not dangerous but one year our neighborhood had an invasion of them. We had weekly neighborhood BBQ's and awarded a prize to the family that caught the most inside their house in a 24 hr period. The record was 38 crickets. And crickets attract scorpions as they are their food source.

    No one has mentioned tranulas. While riding horses in Sedona, I pointed out a tranula to my husband that was walking near the trail. Our hound ran up to it, threw it in the air, and gobbled it down in one bite!

    The job market in Az is a nightmare. I've been here over twelve years and never have I seen such a dark time.
    The home I've lived in over twelve years has never had a visit from a scorpion. It really depends on the area.
    But to live in this beautiful state I would not worry about scorpions.
    The job market, however, is something else.

    I want to move back to Arizona I miss it so much any suggestions ladies? Im a new grad RN with over 5 years of LPN experience. I'll take anything at this point. I had a call from Trillium a few days ago, she sounded interested and told me that she would call me the next day for a telephone interview, but never called? Im seriously thinking of calling her back come Monday. I want to be there even if I have to work way out.

    Call her.

    I know for a fact they just lost a RN.

    If you don't mind LTC/Rehab the Citadel, Plaza, Mesa Good Shepherd are all currently hiring.

    I stepped on both tranchulas and scorpions barefooted. Both times in Sedona. Since I've been in Tucson I haven't seen any. The job market is all right in Tucson. Try UMC. We just opened up another brand new tower, so there will be more job openings. My floor hired like 10 new grads I believe several months ago.
