I am an RN with a BSN currently living in St. Louis. I will be moving to Kansas City in July. I have a year and a half experience in telemetry, ACLS certified, and I am looking to transition into critical care.
I would like to know:
1) What are the best hospitals in the area? I am looking at KU Hospital, St. Luke's, Menorah, Research Medical, and the KC VA - but I'm open to suggestions!
*** As a side note, I tried to call KU Hospital and they don't have a nurse recruiter or anyone I can speak to about employment. There are no job postings for RNs in ICU there. Does anyone know if they are hiring?
2) Do any of the hospitals offer critical care fellowship programs? If not, are they willing to train tele nurses to critical care?
3) Will I be able to work day shift?
4) What should I expect as far as pay/benefits?
Thanks in advance everyone!
