I'm a new nurse (May 2008 BSN) with a STRONG interest in both Pediatrics and ICU (PICU would be ideal, but either works for me ;-) and have been considering relocating to Reno from Vegas mainly because I've heard that nursing is much more pleasant in Northern Nevada (better pay, staffing/ratios, and more opportunities for nurses interested in specialty areas). I'm told Renown is the better place to work compared to St. Marys and other places in Reno.
Does anyone know whether Renown is currently accepting new grads (already passed NCLEX and have ACLS) in their ICUs? Anyone have any information about the length and type of training or preceptorship offered for new nurses? I checked out the Renown website and applied/posted my resume, but I didn't see anything specific to new nurses. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated. Anyone who works or has worked in Reno and would like to share general information about nursing and living in Reno, feel free
Thanks in advance y'all
