After having been stuck in the midwest for the past 6 years, my husband and I are planning on moving to Oahu. I lived there between 1998-2003, and have been missing it since, my husband had never been there prior to our wedding in February of this year, but he fell in love with it as well.
Our projected arrival date is around May 1 of next year, hoping to take some time off before starting work June 1. We are both RNs with telemetry experience in stepdown units, and will have 2 years experience by the time we move. I've been watching the job boards at both Queens and Kapiolani, occasionally I'll check out Tripler as well. I've also heard that Altres is a good agency to work for.
Does anyone have any feelings either way? What's the word on St. Francis (although I think the name has changed since I lived there)
How easy do you think it would be for 2 nurses to get hired at the same hospital?
Any and all input is appreciated. We're not looking for travel assignments, this is definitely a permanent relocation.
