    Just wanted to stop by and say hello I'm originally from South Sioux, but reside in Littleton, Colorado. I just get excited when I see other husker fans out there.
    How funny is that!!! I graduated from SSC in (long time ago) and my daughter is now a surg nurse in Denver and lives in Centennial! It's a small world, hmmm? (she graduated from SSC in '91)

    :chuckle Yeah it is a small world! lol I graduated in '96 and my hubby graduated in '90 from ssc, so he probably knows your daughter. LOL That's just too funny. Yeah I have to admit its nice out here in CO, diffinately more job opportunites than Siouxland. Slowly us husker fans are starting to take over the state of Colorado...lol

    Over last 18 yrs have worked as PRN, Weedend Package, and Fulltime at : St Lukes CR ER, Mercy CR ER, Mercy Ia City ER, and U if I. ER

    Lukes is the busiest, the U is the only Level I trauma center East of Des Moines so we get all the head trauma, and alot of multi-system trauma from CR, Wtloo, Quad cities, and everythig inbetween. There in the process of building a new ER at the U. It's needed. We are so cramped and stacked up it can really suck. But it won't be done for 3yrs.

    Hi - It sounds like a lot of you are from central and southern Iowa. I feel like the lone person from the beautiful Northeast Iowa bluff country - where nursing is not bluffing. It's Decorah for me. But I work at Mercy Medical in New Hampton, Iowa. It's a little bit of a commute, but it's a good time to change gears and get the head into the game. If there are any of you from Luther College or Northeast Iowa Community College out there, I've been to both.

    Now the question I have is why in the world is it that if I cross the boarder either north or east (Mayo or Gundersen in LaCrosse) would I get payed at least $4 more an hour at a base pay rate? Let's get that changed.

    I am in Marion which is right next door. I used to work at Mercy and liked it. I was a supervisor for St. Luke's Home Care and now work at Crestview. I love Geriatrics.

    I forgot I was supernurse75. I am now Harleygirl.
    I did commute, but am switching jobs, so I will be working closer to home. Much shorter commute! Do you commute?

    I live in Cedar Rapids. And also will be going to Kirkwood.

    I am originally from Birmingham Iowa....which is down around Fairfield, not far from Ottumwa and Mt Pleasant.

    I see your post is a few months old so I hope you are enjoying CR. I don't think it's too bad of a place to live. There's no way I would leave now!
