L&D nurse moving to OahuRegister Today!
- by labor/rn Nov 21, '04Ok everybody I've been reading all the postings looking for answers to questions I haven't asked so I thought I would start. My husband and I are moving to Oahu at Kaneohe Bay. I work high risk L&D and I think Queens Hospital is the only facility that is of the equivalent. Is that true? Is it too far of a commute considering all of the traffic I am hearing about? Are nursing jobs readily available? How is the pay? I am coming from a sorry area and am wondering if in Oahu they pay higher rates to flexi employees or does that pretty much depend on the individual facility? Which hospital would be closer to Kaneohe Bay?
Here is a silly question: Are there mosquitos? Any other tips or pointers?
Please e-mail me with any comments but put something in the subject line so I don't delete you.
