Moving to West Memphis

  1. Hello all! We are thinking of moving to the West Memphis area, are actually coming down to look at realestate this weekend. I am an RN with 6+ years over all, 4 in TBICU, 1 year as a Trauma Specialist, some PICU, SICU and PACU. I am thinking of taking a Travel position but would like more inside info on the area, the hospitals and the over all do's and don'ts. Any advice, or info is greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks,
    Devi

    I am sure you are aware that West Memphis is just across the bridge from Memphis, TN, which has a major medical center. You will have lots of opportunities to practice in various settings. There are several tertiary care facilities in Memphis. West Memphis is a nice place to live and Crittenden County has at least one hospital, though not on the same level as those in Memphis. I think the Elvis Presley Trauma Center at the Med is Level One. Good luck!

    [Thanks! I have worked 4 years Burn Trauma ICU, and am looking to get back into that area. Thanks for the info, My Husband would be working at Crittendon, so we have to be close to there.

    Thanks! Actually we are waiting to sell our house then looking seriously at a house in River trace. Also one in town, older, but very nice. I have been talking to Linda @ the med, hoping to get a position in Trauma or TICU. Thanks for the input!!! Do you live in Marion? West Memphis? What about Day Care? I have a 16 month old and a 4 year old. Do any of the hospitals have CDC's?

    Thanks!
