I'm not completely sure but I was looking on the Iowa Health Systems website ( Blank, Methodist, and Iowa Lutheran) and there weren't any OR positions but there were ER positions (I think mainly at Blanks Children's Hospital).
I know Mercy is restructuring right now and some nurses may be leaving because of it. . .so I would suggest possibly contacting Mercy's HR dept and inquire about appling for an OR position. Hope this helps ! !
I don't know if this would be of help to anybody, but I was recently contacted regarding an OR position in Des Moines for a 13 week contract. I was very interested, but did not have the experience needed. If anybody is interested, I would be more than happy to provide the contact information.
We have several openings at our hospital and have more travellers staffing right now than regular RN's in our OR's. Also openings for Open Heart Team for RN's. Allen Memorial Hospital, Waterloo IA....check us out!! Good luck with your search:spin:!
