L&D RN moving to Colorado Springs

  1. 0
    Hi,

    I just found out this week that we will be moving to Colorado Springs at the begining of next year. I currently work high risk L&D and want to stay in that field. I am looking for any advise or suggestions on where to work, pay scale, job availability etc. I will be contacting some of the hospitals in the next month or so but wanted some feedback from people actually working in the area. I live in NM now, I have been to the springs and have a basic feel for the town, but I need some job advise. This will be the first time I have to change jobs an as RN, so I am a little nervous.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you ever get any private responses to this question? I am curious also. I do high risk L&D and am wanting some opinions.

    You have been my only response. I have had no luck. I am in the process of putting together my resume to send out since I have no reponses from the e-mail's I sent the hospitals. If you have any luck please let me know.

    Ok, somehow my last post to you didn't go through.

    I've been doing some internet research and don't see many L&D jobs advertised in or around the Springs. There are several PP jobs. I guess if we found a hospital that we liked it would be a place to start. I hate to settle just b/c it's one of the few advertising the job.

    I really hope for some insider information. Maybe if I just keep bumping it the right person will see it!

    Good luck. BTW, their newspaper is gazette.com if you haven't found that yet.

    I lived in CS for 12 years and worked as an NNP at Memorial. They have a level 3 nursery and can compete with Denver. Also in town is Penrose Hospital. They started a level 3 in the early 90s. Both use NNPs for 24 hour coverage plus a group of neos.
