    Worked through MSN agency. Got to work at all the local hospitals and also in Georgetown. Georgetown was a small hospital, however, it was really "nurse friendly" place to work.
    Wish you luck..............Keep posted on how you are doing.

    I believe you need to look at what type of nursing you are interested. All the hospitals in Lexington have up sides and down sides. I believe you are better off doing something you love and are interested in. I presently work at UK. I find it to be a great place to work. Like many of the others, I have worked in several local institutions, but have chosen UK because I believe you have more autonomy here than any other place. I also like the fact that it is a learning institution, which allows for great personal growth. I am very interested in trauma nursing, and this is a Level 1 trauma center.

    Can anyone tell me why the board in this state is so hard to deal with? I tried to get a license there and paper work was overwhelming. No Clear understanding of it. Called 3 times to board office and was put on hold then disconnected.

    I am not stupid but I do think they left something out of my packet and cannot get a answer. Have had other thoughts about trying to cross the line and work in the state, if board is that difficult to deal with.

    I've been an RN since 1991, and I've never had a problem with the KY Board of Nursing.

    What you are experiencing must be an exception. Don't let it stop you...there is nothing wrong with the KY Board as far as I know; I've never had any problem.
