Opinions on Denver EDs as a nurse (anyone) ^_^

  1. Good morning everyone!

    I recently decided to pull the trigger and move from Houston to Denver come this May 2013. I've had this dream of mine for the last 10 years now (yep, 10 long years...)

    I've come across some old post, mainly in 2010 and later, about the working conditions of some of the EDs in the Denver-Metro area.

    My question is this:
    I'm looking to find some basic information about some of the local hospital EDs: things like nightly (yearly) census, triage-to-discharge (or admission) throughput, pt to nurse ration, nurse satisfaction, etc.

    If anyone has even the slightest information about working for any of the denver-metro hospital companies could you post. I've learned that planning is everything; and I certainly do not wish to make a grave mistake when it comes to picking a job in a new city let alone new state.

    I've been able to build up my experience to a solid portfolio (just stepped out of that "new grad" shadow, lol)

    4+ years of ED nursing
    BSN Nurse
    Worked for one of the top hospitals in Houston, TX

    So any and all information that anyone can provide would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks so much "ya'll" ^_^
