Yes I will be in the Oct. 3rd Orientation. I will be working a rotating position in the clinics. I'm thinking about getting up there at least a week before to find a place. It's kind of scary because many places won't rent to you unless you are in person. I'm trying to find a place where I can pay about 500-600 a month in rent. I'm going to start calling around today to see if I can get something setup.
Did you get hired through an agency or directly by the hospital ? I have heard that even the hotels have no availability till at least Sept. 18th I got hired through an agency and they told me that the hospital has apartments and its 950 a month for a 2 bedroom. They encourage nurses to room mate together and I think its a 6 month min. lease. I also know its very hard to get a place secured unless you are there. Many places won't rent sight unseen and if they have people there ready to rent they get first choice.
