I am from Denver but had to unfortunately move away in 2003 because of my husband's job. I have a Bachelor's in Psych from UC Denver and have since gotten a BSN from another state University. I currently work on the oncology unit in a large urban and exclusively pediatric hospital. I am trying to get my husband to move us back to Denver and if we manage it, we hope to move next May-August. By then I will have 2.5 years inpatient exp, 2 years inpatient pediatric oncology exp, chemo cert, and 1 year BMT experience. I also have 10 years home visiting experience in early childhood intervention as well.
I hear awful things about the pay scale in Denver and also how hard it is to get into Children's. My question i,s how is the pay at Children's compared to other hospitals and can I expect it to be hard to get into despite my experience?
I know this question is asked a lot, so I apologise for the monotomy; but I have searched the forums and have not yet seen much that talks about the actual pay at Children's for experienced nurses. Anyone want to chime in? Thanks :-)
