Hospitals in Yuma area
- 0Jul 28, '09 by mlokI am a new grad. Graduated in May and passed nclex in June. Can anyone please tell me there are hospitals in the yuma, az area that are still hiring new grads? I currently live in san diego, ca and I having a hard time finding a job. I am asking about the yuma area because i have family there and the transition will be easier for me because i will have a place to stay until i can live on my own.

- 1Sep 20, '09 by ChrissyLove123I moved from San Diego to Yuma when I was 15... I still haven't found a way to "dig out." I wouldn't suggest moving here to anyone. One hospital. I mean, enough said. Stay where there is variety and diversity. I wouldn't say it's impossible to find a job here, but you're very limited because there is "NOTHING" bordering Yuma. Just Mexico and about 2 hrs of desert either way you drive.

(I know this because I spent my summer doing a health needs assessment of Yuma County.) Everyone wants to move to the cities and the rural areas get ignored. Yuma County needs the help of health care professionals.
