    Hey fellow Nurses,

    I am considering a job in the ER deptment @ Wilcox memorial hospital. I have never been to this island. So I would like some input from others mostly about the island. Be honest good or bad!!!
    Thanks

    Take it! Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on earth. MANY movies are filmed here because it's sooo pretty. The people are very down-to-earth and friendly. Technically, the strike is still on, but they're at an impasse and the only ones who don't know it's over are the dozen or so nurses still striking. Hawaii is a little more expensive place to live, but worth it if you like outdoor sports and activities. And beaches! :-)

    "technically"?

    try educating yourself on what is really going on---check out the articles and especially the "letters to the editor" sections, scanning back over the last few months:

    kauai garden island news

    if your a selfish opportunist who doesn't gve a crap about how these nurses have struggled against hph for the last few months just come on over---you'll have plenty of company.

    Thanks so much for the information...... thats awesome!!!!! The nurse manager that I had the interview with said that it would a very good idea if I had a car. And I really do not think thats possible, especially if I 'd only be there for 6 months.

    I would rethink this whole plan if I were you. You really should look @ the Hawaii BON site about the strike, and check out the Kaua'i newspaper as well, before jumping into that situation. JMHO.

    No, I don't live there, and so don't know everything about it, I'm just advising caution.
