    :groupwelcome:

    I don't know the answer to your question, but can give you the websites for the local hospitals so maybe you could find out.

    St. Johns http://www.sjmc.com
    Saint Francis http://saintfrancis.com/
    Hillcrest http://www.hillcrest.com/hhs/
    Tulsa Regional http://www.tulsaregional.com/
    SouthCrest http://www.southcresthospital.com/default

    there's also Cancer Treatment Centers and Orthopedic Hospital, but I think they both only hire RNs. I'm also going to graduate with my LPN next spring. If you're interested, Tulsa Community College offers a LPN-RN program that can be completed in 2-3 semesters (depending on if you clep a couple of classes and if you already have all the prereqs.) I'm probably going to do it next fall.

    I just applied at St. Francis and they pay relocation for a move of over 75miles for RNs. I don't know about LPNs, but I think I saw it on their website under their general job information so they probably do.

    Well welcome back anyway! If you decide to apply at St Johns let me know - I'll split the nurse referral bonus with ya! They don't have a lot of job postings for LPNs but I'm told that often if you talk to the manager of certain floors they will still hire you. They usually have LPN openings in home health or hospice and Franciscan Villas assisted living (or nursing home?) They also are about to open a hospital in Owasso.
    I've only been at SJMC for 2 weeks but I love it already and am very impressed with most of the nurses I work with.

    I think new LPNs start around $13/hour at SJMC, but I don't remember. Sorry. I know they've got a good tuition reimbursement plan though, which I plan to use!
    As for the VA....try this http://www.ok.gov/ODVA/Veterans_Centers/Claremore.html
    there's also the Indian hospital in Claremore http://www.ihs.gov/
