    From my experience you have to have your TN or compact state licensure FIRST before they will even consider you.

    Go somewhere else besides the Knoxville area. This place is absolutely stinks working as an RN.

    And as far as Mercy.......I would be very hesitant to seek employment with them. There's a reason they have many openings.

    Thanks for the input - would you say the pay or the work enviorment makes working in Tenn not so great?? Its tough now cause the job market makes you just take whatever you get

    This place is a mess. Work environment and pay both suck. Mercy is not a good company to work for. I am sure somebody is going to come to their defense however I've worked for several better places. I've not seen so much stupid concentrated in one area in my life.

    To be honest, i'd be looking about 2 1/2 hours west of here if I were you. There's a little more professional setup over that way.
