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!
