  8. nursing home job?
    The reason Midwest City Hospital is hiring on a consistent basis is, the environment is very toxic. I know, as I used to work there. Try Integris or Mercy. Hope you enjoy your time in Oklahoma.

  16. Oklahoma Nurses get paid WHAT?!
    Sadly, that salary sounds correct. Also, don't forget that Oklahoma is an "at will state". That is why we will never have a union for patient ratios and salaries. Sad... OklaLPN
