Relocating to Knoxville TN

  1. 0
    I will be moving to Knoxville TN in June 2013. I am a RN with 2 years hospital experience and was a LPN for 1 1/2 years prior to thatworking in LTC. I currently work in the float pool working in med-surg,telemetry, ICU, and emergency department. I have already started the process for obtaining my TN license.

    I was wondering if anyone could share some information aboutwhere are the best hospitals to work at and which ones to avoid. I am looking for positions in the ED or float pool.

    I appreciate any insight anyone can give me.

    I work for covenant healthcare and it is an awesome hospital group consisting of many hospitals in the Knoxville area Park West hospital in Knoxville and I really good Heart Hospital. Also UT hospital has the only trauma 1 er. Oh no you to hospital only hires BSN RNs do to their Magnet status UT has an excellent ER. I work for covenant Healthcare and would recommend them to anyone they are non profit and really care about their nursing staff.Tennova Healthcare is the third hospital group in the area and I have many friends that work there and from what I've heard I would not recommend them to anyone. I love covenant healthcare and we have our own float pool nurses that travel throughout the hospital system and have the highest rate of pay in the area. Good luck and I hope this helps

    I work as an RN in knoxville currently. You pretty much have 3 hospital systems to choose from: UT ( a stand alone hospital), covenant, and tennova. For UT, you have to have a bachelors. Tennova is OK, but the company keeps getting bought out and they were on a hiring freeze for a while. Covenant owns most hospitals around there and is a pretty good company to work for. Don't expect pay to be impressive. Starting is 18.50 and you get the chance to go up a dollar once you have one year in. It is flooded with nurses, so finding a job can pose difficulty to some. We're flooded with nursing schools.
