  8. Methodist Hospital in Oak Ridge
    not exactly sure you can do that. it is called practicing w/o a license and is illegal. for you to sit for the license exam you have to have a school sign off to the board saying you have completed...

  13. the med
    i will say this though. there is a reason they went through like 5 ceo's or directors (whatever their term was) in a short period of time. you're better off going to methodist university if you want...

  16. the med
    the med is a sinking ship. avoid it if at all possible. the vast majority of the patients and people that work there are ghetto and the hospital is ran as such. this is by no means a shot at anyone...

  17. Rate of Pay for NEW GRAD in Knoxville
    All the hospitals in Knoxville talk to each other EXTENSIVELY. I'm pretty sure that they have all agreed to about the same pay scale too. Pay is one of the lowest in the country.

  22. Moving to Tennessee from New Jersey
