Does anyone have any experience with this institution? It is owned by the University of Missouri Health Care systems. The campus is beautiful, but if it is within one-half hour of Springfield, why do they need so many RN's? Any experiences would be appreciated.

If I had to take a guess...I would say it's hard to compete with Springfield/Joplin hospitals and their nursing shortage as well and Mt. Vernon is in the middle. They are always advertising for nurses and it's mainly because "who wants to work in Mt. Vernon when you can work in Springfield and make X amount".
I love Mt. Vernon. I lived outside of there for 5 years. It is a beautiful town, within driving distance to TONS of places but still a small town which I think is awesome.
We now live by the Arkansas boarder, love it there too
