Moving to NC/NE AR in July 2006Register Today!
- by RNLeavingTheOC Oct 22, '05Hello!
I am moving to Arkansas in July 2006. My in-laws live in Horseshoe Bend so ideally I need to stick around that area or anywhere between Mountain Home and Jonesboro. I have been a California RN for 11 years, have a BSN, Public Health Nurse Certificate and have had my AR RN license already. I am currently working in HMO utilization review dept for a large medical center/group in my area-probably comparable to St. Bernard's in Jonesboro. Hopefully I can find a similar position but I would love to work in a public health role or go back to ER nursing. Any advice about working in AR that I should know of? (Other than pay rate) Would love to hear from seasoned RNs or student RNs.
PS-I just got back from a trip to AR a week ago and my arm is so tired from waving at everybody driving by!

THey just finished a new ER wing at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Walnut Ridge...my mother is an LPN on the med/surg unit...wonderful place to work. They have recieved numerous awards. I think you would really like it.
Good Luck and make yourself at home!
