Moving to Michigan....

  1. 0
    I am getting married and moving to Michigan by the end of the year. I would like information on hospitals in the Detroit/Southfield area. My specialty is NICU. I've never lived anywhere except TX so I need information on how to get my Michigan license. Also what's the weather really like in Michigan??

    I do not know anything about the Hospitals in Detroit, but you do have to contact the state of michigan BON and they can help you with getting your license in this state. Go to www.mi.gov and you can get most of your info there. The weather is another story, but I live right on lake Michigan and we had snow up until just two weeks ago, the weather is forever changing. Good Luck

    Depending on the size of the facility that you would like, and types of infants........Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak has one of the best NICUs around. That is the largest of the tertiary or referral centers. Check them out..

    I am also a NICU nurse from Texas (currently in Plano) and we will be moving to the Detroit area in the next few months. My husband put together a spread sheet of a lot of hospitals in the area that have NICUs. As soon as we have more details on our move I'm going to start pursuing a job. I'm about to send in my nursing license application.

    Where are you in the process now? Any advice? Do you know where you'll be living? (I worked at Texas Children's for a while in 2001 in Houston, by the way)

    I am moving to Michigan next week with my 2 kids. I am driving from Texas. Is it hard to find an LVN job in Michigan. I have enough money to last for 1 month. Is it possible to find a job in a month? I started looking at Michigan job bank and other websites i can find but theres not that many openings. I am thinking maybe some openings are listed in the local newspaper. I am a little bit scared moving because I dont know anybody except for my former classmate who moved there last November. She is just renting a room. I am a filipino and hoping to find a filipino Nurse who can help me and my kids.

    If anyone can give me a lead to any Nursing Home LVN opening-- i would highly appreciate it.
    If anyone has a spare bedroom where i can rent for a month until i find a job, that would be very helpful.

    I appreciate anyone who could help us.

    Thank you.

    biotoLVN, Wow, people leave Michigan to move to Texas and look for work, not the other way around. I hope its not too late for you to rethink your plans.

    1 month of living expenses is cutting it very close. My ex husband is an engineer with a masters degree and has been out of work over a year up here. Not that it has anything to do with nursing, but Im just saying the grass is NOT greener in Michigan than in Texas.

    Yes I definitely don't think that moving from texas to michigan is a good idea. Its very hard to find work up here and the weather is horrible! It could be sunny and spring like, rainy, and snow all in the same week! I am definitely trying to get AWAY from michigan. In the event that you HAVE to move here I'm not sure of who has the best NICU. Beaumont is continously laying off so I would be nervous working there. I would try St. John, henry ford, or DMC. Hope this helps out some but if u can help it I definitely wouldn't leave texas for michigan!

    You ask if it's possible to find a job in a month in Michigan. Really, right now it is not. There are very few job openings, because no one is voluntarily leaving their job, and when there are openings, there are 100 or more applicants.

    Also, it sounds like bad weather worries you. Winter in Michigan lasts through March, and the roads are slick. Do you have experience driving in snow?

    Where is your classmate working? Is she in any position to hire you?
