1. Have always dreamed of living in Sedona. I have experience in med/surg, oncology/hospice and rehab nursing. What is the job market in that area? Don't see many hospitals in Sedona, is Cottonwood close by?

    There are nurses who live in Sedona that work at Verde Valley Medical
    Center, (in Cottonwood). Sedona is very pricey to live in though.

    It is about a 45 minute commute.

    I've worked at Verde Valley Medical Center before I moved to Tucson, and I didn't like it. From what I hear about Flagstaff Medical Center is mostly poor management, and nurses really do not enjoy being employed there. Northern Arizona Health Care I would just say stinks as an employer. You can always live in Prescott which is about 45 minutes away from Sedona. I used to live there as well. I enjoyed it better than Sedona. They have Yavapai Regional Medical Center, which has 2 hospitals, and the VA.

    There is a long term nursing facility in Sedona called Kachina Point Healthcare. I worked there as a cna and was paid very well. 13.50 for 2 years experience and 1 dollar shift diff for each shift. I worked nights so it was an 2 dollars. Also on the weekends you make a dollar more. so on weekends i was making 17.76..and normal on night 15.76. I didnt have a good time working here though, The management was excellent but the drama among cna's who thought too much of themselves and not the quality of care is what made this a horrible experience for me.. MAybe better for someone else who is not used to there being some sort of diversity at work.
