    Thank you.

    I have heard Baptist East in Louisville is good. They don't have a lot of incentives being offered for new hires, which always makes me think that it must be a good place to work because they don't have a problem filling positions. I also know several people who work there, and they are always trying to get me to move over!

    Seems to be too late.

    "They don't have a lot of incentives being offered for new hires, which always makes me think that it must be a good place to work because they don't have a problem filling positions."

    Hiring incentives are offered ONLY if:
    a) a facility recognizes it has a problem and
    b) it is actually trying to correct it.

    They are not offered if:
    a) a facility has a hiring problem but has its head in the sand about it,
    b) a facility recognizes it has a hiring problem but doesn't do anything about it,
    c) a facility recognizes it has a hiring problem and is trying to solve it by means other than hiring incentives, OR
    d) a facility doesn't have a hiring problem.

    Yes, sjoe, but I did add that several people who already work there have encouraged me to apply there, which is another part of the picture!

    I'd like to know the answer to that question myself. When I was first graduating from nursing school, a recruiter from a Louisville hopsital was offering a $12,000 sign on bonus...I ran as fast as I could.

    Hello fellow Kentuckians! I can't answer Shezam's question. Just wanted to say hello. :-)

    I have three years to think about where I'm going to work. I already know that it HAS to be local though. I'm married with three daughters and a mortgage.

    Try UK. I hear they have a good hospital and it is a teaching facility. Also, the U of Louisville hospital (forgot the name) is a good facility. Just some of the ones I know of.

    I've heard St. Elizabeth is good and a magnet hospital--one in Covington area.
