- 0Sep 20, '11 by buddy63301Ok here goes. Hello to all the Missouri nurses out there. I have been a LPN since 1997. I lived in the Saint Charles Missouri area for about 30 yrs. I currently reside in a small town called Palmyra in Missouri. I love living here just cant make a living here. I moved here 6yrs ago after getting married to a man from Palmyra. Its still in the state of Missouri but my wages as a LPN have been cut in half. Here is my questions? When I went to nursing school the IV class was not included so I am not Iv cert. The only place I can find that will iv cert me is interlock pharm in St. Louis but thats a 2hr drive and gas cost so much now. Does anyone out there know anywhere closer? Now I also live close to Quincy Illinois and was wanting to get a Illinois license. I have a compact multistate license. If I apply for endorsement to Illinois and get a Illinois license will I still have my compact multi Missouri license? Im not moving to Illinois just want to be able to work there. Please help!
- 0Nov 26, '11 by brownmouseHello. I'm new to these forums. I'm an RN living and working in Central Tx. Recently married a Missouri man and am just wondering what nursing is like in Missouri. Currently I am working for Seton Family of Hospitals in the Austin area and our max is 5pts/nurse. Thank goodness we have finally started moving toward a safer ratio, though we're not there yet. Studies show that mortality rates increase when a registered nurse exceeds 4 pts on a medical-surgical unit. Anyways, I'd love to hear your input on nursing in Mo. Especially the Springfield area.
