    Hi I'm not a nurse, my wife is.

    She is an RN in the Med ICU and might be going to grad school soon for FNP. Any recommendations for a PDA and do you buy the medical software for them as well?

    Thanks!!

    But here's the tough question we have. My wife will soon have 2 years of experience as an RN in the ICU. We used to live in MN and went to school in ND and now have been living in the state of Virgina as residents of VA for the last two years.

    We want to go back to Minnesota/North Dakota for her schooling but don't want to pay out of state tuition. Is there any way around this? It would be very frustrating to move back to where you lived for 22 years only to pay out of state tuition.

    Has anyone ever heard of hospitals that will pay you out of your contract, for example you sign a 2 year contract at a hospital for 10K signing bonus, but if you want to leave after 14 months you have to pay back 7.5K.

    You want to leave to a new hospital far far away. Will any hospitals pay this for you?

    Anyone??

    Trying to move back to MN from the East Coast.

    My wife and I are thinking about moving there for my job. She is looking at this hospital. Did they mention you starting pay. My wife has 1 year of Critical Care.

    Is there differential pay?

    Good health benefits?

    Any help would be helpful for us.

    Thank you.

    Anyone have any good things to say about Abbott Northwestern or Fairview Southdale?

    Any guesses on 4 year RN wages w/ 1 year ICU experience for these two hospitals or area hospitals?

    Thanks for your help!

    Anyone who can help,

    I'm a beginning airline pilot (~2 years into it) and my wife has 1 year of ICU experience with a 4 year RN. I want to move to the MSP area for a new job and my wife, the nurse wants to head back too.

    Are there any hospitals in the metro area or even ST. Cloud that has new-hire benefits like moving assistance? or pehaps signing bonuses? Probably not unless she's a new-grad RN. Out in Virginia she got 10K for a two year contract and they paid us 2K to move us out here.

    Know anything back home?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes,

    I'm an airline pilot and will be moving to RDU soon. My wife has 1-2 years of ICU nursing with a BSN (I'm asking/researching because I'm a 'gung-ho' researcher prior to life changing events).

    1- Do people like it and is it affordable?

    2- For planning purposes, do you know ~$ per hour she could expect at the area hospitals? Know the best ones to work at? Any other RDU area advice?

    Ooops sorry that was more than 2 questions:stone .

    Thank you all for any information.

    Please help,

    When I say minor, I mean she was caught drinking when she was 18 years old and having difficulties because she's going to a new state and to take the NCLEX in the new state and there's a delay for this and I was just wondering if anyone knew about how to expedite the process.

    Hello all,

    If a soon-to-be RN is graduating here in May and going to be taking their NCLEX in late May/early June, has anyone had problems with a minor in their background (18 yrs old) and then moving to a new state to take their NCLEX? I know someone that its causing a little mess. Moving from MN to VA. Please help if you know anything.

    My fiance is a nurse and we're moving to the Norfolk area. She might want to work at Chesapeake General Hospital. Has anyone heard anything on them like pay and weekend pay like that Sentara stuff? Any info ya'll can provide on Chesapeake General would help us out a lot. She is graduating in May w/ a four year degree in nursing and has a preference in working in ER or cardio, but she's pretty flexible (or so I think).

    Thanks!
