    Recently moved from TX - worked CVICU, worked a weekend plan for $34.00 hr. Moved to Willmar, MN and there is one RN position. Wow how did MN avoid the nursing shortage? What is up with rotating shifts? Why would anyone want to flip-flop their life like that? Sorry had to vent! I'm frustrated! I thought once i had that degree I could get a job anywhere. Is MN attempting to unionize? I've read the MN nursing *** web-site and it appears unionization is high priority. I'm just trying to get a feel for what is going on with nursing in this state. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
    Call out to the Willmar Regional Treatment Center. They are always looking for nurses with Psych experience. Even though MN Mental Health is transitioning to community based services there is definitely a demand for nurses. Otherwise check out the MN DOER website.

    I am surprized to know there is so little need. I am interested in the area also, but not when I can do so well some other places. I am also surprized that more nurses in MN are not tempted to travel. i have been to Willmar, and it seems to be a nice, quaint town.
