    Since I'm in staffing pool, I'll be on all kinds of floors! I was kind of apprehensive about the job at first but everyone says its a great job. There are people who have been working in that pool 20 to 30 years! So, hopefully, I'll like it too. It's bound to be great learning experience!

    Let me know how your job goes as well!

    Wow, I'm on my second day of orientation and I am DYING! It's like hell week! SO BORING!

    I cannot wait to get this over with! Give you something to look forward to! Heh heh

    Maybe all hospitals do this, but the CEO came and spoke to us. He talked about how hard it is to get on at Mission and how they only hire the best of the best. Makes a person feel a little bit proud!

    CVOR -Cardio Vascular Operating Room. Looks like they have a huge Heart program.

    Oh no!! Haha! I start orientation next Monday. Now I'm really excited!

    Sandra, I just got your message today. I actually just pulled into town in Asheville so I will be sure to message you as soon as I can answer more of your questions

    Crazier: did you ask about relocation allowance? I haven't asked yet

    Who do I talk to about relocation expenses? The HR coordinator? I've never had to ask about it before. I hope it's not too late!

    it would be HR. I don't know if they will or not but never hurts to ask..... all they can do is say no. Do you move an entire household? Yourself or amoving company? How much did it cost?

    Relocation, sign on, etc sometimes depends on how bad they need someone. And if they know how bad you need them. Did you already have a job? I do, so if they NEED my skills they will have to pay for them

    I already had a job and moved for the job at Mission. I'm not sure how much my relocation expenses have cost so far but it's been pricey. The drive, staying in a hotel for a week, not to mention the cost of making the trip up here to interview for the job. I just moved myself...I can't imagine the cost of moving a family! I called HR yesterday but haven't heard anything back. I figured they would talk about it when I signed my papers, got my badge etc, which is what my old hospital did. Hopefully, I'll find out more today. It's been tough!

    Mission is a great hospital with an awesome heart department, one of the best. I was a heart patient there almost 6 years ago and was very impressed with the nurses and doctors there. I am a first year nursing student and may work there some day. I have heard it helps if you know someone that works there and that they ask you if you do. My husband's aunt has been there for over 20 years and has loved it! Good luck everyone!
