  1. Looking into moving from Yakima, WA to Boise, ID. Just wonding which hospitals are nicer to work for (I am really interested in ER or ICU) I currently have 3 years of RN float pool experiance but I love floating to ED the most) .
    I really need to know what the wages are like for these kind of positions? Are the hospitals union? Trauma levels? Benefits? Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

    I'm new to Boise and will soon be a nursing student, so I'll be interested in the response to these questions. It seems this board isn't very active up here, unfortunately. I can answer that St. Al's is a level 2 trauma center. Good luck and hopefully someone will answer. I worked in trauma services (non clinical) in my hometown and am very interested in it!

    I am actually interviewing at St. Lukes next week and here is a rough idea of what they told me I am an ADN with just over a year experience at a Level 1. Roughly $22.00, about %15 shift dif, and roughly another $1.50 for weekends. Bear in mind I have only an ADN and a yeas experience. Not as much as I make now in AZ but I can't wait to move up there. Oh and they are also paying for the move.

    [font="comic sans ms"]most hospitals have a slightly higher starting wage for bsns. as far as facilities go, i think st luke's - boise is the best. as a magnet hospital, it treats nurses very well. if you are full-time, the benefits package is really quite good. i'm not too familiar with what is available to part-timers. to the best of my knowledge, there are no union hospitals in the region. at least, i've never heard of one. good luck to you!
