I moved back to California thinking there was more opportunity there for me. I was wrong. Two years later I was able to force my way into shift nursing making low wages without benefits and still no light at the end of the tunnel as to when or how I can get into a hospital. I started looking into Renown and was going to get my endorsement license and apply there. I read in earlier threads that Reno doesn't hire from CA because a lot of nurses end up moving back after a year. These were older threads and just wondering if this is the case still? Any insight would be helpful.

- May 20 by Dual Licensed NurseHi! Did you ever get any responses to this post? I am in the same boat and I'm looking for advice/suggestions. I am also thinking of relocating to Reno as I have family there. If you have applied and have any insight I would be greatful if you would share it with me.
- May 22 by Lrome11No not really lol. I was able to connect with a few old teachers in that area but I decided to try Vegas first and use Reno a back up plan. I went to school in Vegas and have more support out there. I applied to a hospital and got a call back the following week for interview. I didn't get the job. But just the interview was huge for me. It was my first. I haven't gotten a call back from a hospital in California in 2 years of applying.
- May 22 by Lrome11Btw I did get my NV license. I don't think they wld consider my application if I hadn't.
