Hi there! I work at the University of Kansas Hospital, which is also referred to as KUMED. It is a level 1 trauma center and a regional burn center. There is an SICU as well as a Cardiothoracic Surger ICU. Not sure what the pay scale would be for someone w/ your experience. As a new grad, I was hired at $20.50. If you are a night shift person, premium night shift differential is another $5.15. KU is a Magnet hospital, and I really like working here!
Also. Saint Luke's is another Magnet hospital just a few blocks down the road. Also a good trauma center. I did most of my clinicals for nursing school
there. Also a good place to work, however I chose KU over Saint Lukes upon graduation because of $1 an hour better pay and i generally liked the atmosphere a little better.
Truman Medical Center is located in Downtown Kansas City MO. I really don't know a lot about it except that it is an inner city hospital with all that entails.
I used to live in Mission. It is a nice suburban area, and about a 10-15 minute drive from either KU or Saint Luke's.
If there are any other questions I can answer for you, let me know!
