Quote from WindwardOahuRN
Queens has hired quite a few EXPERIENCED RN's lately. They are pulling from the huge pool of very experienced former HMC nurses who were displaced by the closings of HMC West and HMC East.
Since Queens has recently purchased HMC West and the tentative re-opening is set for next Spring I imagine that there will be some hope for an increase in job opportunities here.
But still....not much hope for mainland wannabe-transfers.
The slots will be filled by the local new-grad-RN-unit secretaries/nurses aides/etc, who have been waiting in anguish for such opportunities. They will be hired first, over those from other geographical areas.
Which, IMOH, is as it should be.
This sounds discouraging to me. I was a Hawaii resident for 25 years, then moved to California in 2001. During my time here, I worked as an LVN for two years and am currently an RN for 8 years with psych, med/surg, tele, PCU, and trauma experience. I'm planning to move back in a year to take care of my parents. I'm interested in your recommendations and advices. Thanks!
