Relocating to Southern Oregon
- 0Mar 13, '12 by OregonRuralRNI am an RN/BSN with almost 5 years of med-surg and a year and a half of icu/step-down experience in a critical access hospital. I am considering relocating to the Medford/Grants Pass area and am interested in hearing from others about their experiences with the various hospitals there. I am particularly interested in knowing how Asante's benefits and medical insurance compare to Providence and Planetree. Also, are any of the hospitals unionized?

I work in GP as a CNA and just graduated from nursing school and have been hired as a RN. I can't tell you about their benefits or health coverage since I currently work Code 3 (on-call). Either place is an awesome place to work, though!
- 0Jul 7, '12 by busymommyWhat can you tell me about the work environment in your hospital, Love911Nursing? Do the RNs generally seem happy to be there? What's the nurse-to-patient ratio like on, say, a med-surg floor? Also, would love to know about the cost of living in that area. We may be relocating to So. OR for family issues, so any info (or links to info) that you can pass on would be great.
