Ft. Myers Seasonal RN's
- 0Sep 24, '08 by KIMRNNYCI have spoken to Lee Memorial about their seasonal nursing positions.
They will give $1000.00 toward housing and pay health benefits for 2 FULL years if you commit to 2 seasonal employments of 6 months, 1 day.
Has anyone had experience doing this? From what I hear, there are a surplus of nice apartments available at this time. My reason for wanting to do this is my love of Sanibel. I would be spending my days off there. I would love to rent there but the island is very expensive for monthly rates, especially as it will be high season.
They have not released jobs to traveler agencies yet. Perhaps they are waiting to see how many seasonals they can get first.
Thanks for any info. in advance.
- 0Sep 26, '08 by stilltryingI'm not sure when the season start for Lee Memorial but the nurses are not getting any hours now. I work @ Shell Point and our PRN staff is really getting upset because the hospital nurses are getting most of the hours now. Because they are willing to work any floor/shift.
- 0Sep 29, '08 by stilltryingI like Shell Point. The is pay ok, but benefits are good. Are you an LPN or RN? The rate for PRN RN is $23 for days and $26 for nights. For LPN $20 days and $23 for nights. Their is an assisted living facility next to Health Park Hospital (another Lee Memorial Hospital) I think it is call The Cove. I heard they pay well, or you can always try places in Naples.
- 1Oct 7, '08 by KIMRNNYCQuote from lpnfloridaThis is seasonal that I was offered which is different than traveler. I was told the same, no travelers unless they did not get any seasonal nurses. Seasonals are hired directly by the hospital, work 6 months, 1 day and are required to contract to 2 years.I am surprised to hear the offer for a traveler for Lee Memorial, we were told there would be no travelers this year in the system. In fact the former travelers we had we not picked up for this year. Perhaps it all depends on at which campus?
