- Apr 11, '11 by freezebabyRNhi Cabbagehead! That is one hosptial I will be having an interview next month at for the same area. I have a total of five interviews lined up waiting on one more while I visit. You will have to keep me posted on how you like it there. I'm relocating too from out of state, so new to the entire area also. Might me nice to have support for us transplants! I have one friend that lives down that way, but other than that no family or anyone else!
I am really looking forward to the new adventure!!!
- Nov 17, '11 by sj73201hi, since you're from out of state, did the hospital pay for you to get to the interview? are they paying any relocation expenses?
- Nov 17, '11 by freezebabyRNI had a total of 8 interviews, and no none would pay for the interview travel. After the first two said they wouldn't I quit asking. Some would pay anywhere from 1000 to 2000 for relocation. I did not take a job in a hospital as I felt the nurse to patient ratios are too high for me. I worked in MN where it is 3-4 on the day shift not 5-6 I've heard some hospitals go up even more than that. I didn't get a good feel at Northside hospital or other hospitals either. I actually am doing hospice and love it here in FL until I finish my MSN degree and then hopefully teach with my summers and holidays off so we can be "snow birds" Tampa general hangs corvert (I don't know if your familiar with that drug, but you need the crash cart out and ready), and their patient ratios are 4-5. That is unsafe! Across the board I find that down here and I'm not going to risk my nursing lic. Hope my reply helps you!
