I didn't go thru the excelsior program but I have a friend that did and she's doing fine! Best of luck to ya!:studyowl:
Just want to add that Baptist was wonderful when I had my youngest son 6 weeks early (34 wk gestation). I was rushed down from northern AR dx'd with the HELLP sydrome. We had a good outcome with everything that was going on!!! Whew...I think they saved us both! Can't say enough good things about Baptist from a patient perspective, wouldn't mind working there if I didn't live 150 miles away (one direction).Last edit by k9's mom on Oct 12, '06
Mar 10, '07I liked that sentiment....I used to work in geriatrics in Searcy and I worked Home Health for years. That time of keeping the elderly in their homes and happy was the best time of my life. I never quite learned not to take it hard when they died. So Kandee...you still doing geriatrics? TAKE CARE OF YOUR BACK
Mar 23, '07Aloha, ya'll!
I'm an Arkansas native (anyone heard of Van Buren County?). I've moved around a lot, been in Hawaii for about 2 years. Haven't lived in Arkansas since 92, but my folks are getting older and I'm thinking about going back.
Anyway I'm enjoying reading the forums and getting some idea of what i'm getting into.
Most importantly, I am still a Razorbacks fan...and VERY disappointed in their performance in the 1st round :smackingf
(sigh) Maybe next year!

Yeah, that makes a big difference, having aging folks. Mine are both dead. Two of my brothers have died while I've been living in England. Relatives so far away can be a hairy situation. My son still lives in Ar. SOOOOIE!
Mar 29, '07I lived in Fort Smith for over 10 years. We moved back to Va 3 years ago. My parents live in Plumerville Ar which is about 60 minutes away from Little Rock.

Jul 8, '07Quote from JailHouseTeerWelcome LA! I'm from NA and we're got a prison (North AR Central Unit) located here also. I visited the dispensary during pill call one day to check things out for possible employment...a whole new ballgame vs. working at the local hospital. Glad you enjoy it, I kinda prefer ER!Howdy from LA = Lower Arkansas! LPN since 1984- work in the prison system here with infection control program.

I've lived and worked in AR since 1989.
i graduated uca in 1972, so we are both older than dirt
Jul 22, '07Anyone from northwest arkansas that wants to chat about psych patient placement availability? The police just bring to ED, then they go to SICU or the MS floor with a sitter right next to some ped patient or very ill patient. There has got to be a better way and place to treat this troubled souls///
