Anyone needing a job....

  1. 0 Guys, if anyone is willing to relocate, the Fort Duncan Regional hospital is always hiring. That is where I am now, originally from Dallas-graduated in May 2011. Most of our nurses are from out of town. They are probably still offering 24000 bonus if you stay for two years. It is a good hospital, but the town is small and not much to do on weekends. But, if you need to get experience and cant find a position, consider it! Google fortduncanregional and apply! I hope it helps some that are finding it difficult to get positions-mom35

    Ive actually been looking into it since late last year. I wont be graduating until June but Im definitely going to apply when I finish.

    Mom35- Do you feel like the orientation that you received was sufficient?

    I am going into my ninth week of orientation. We get twelve weeks. Yes, I think it is sufficient. You get preceptors, not the same person each time though.

    Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, not many would do it, God bless you.
    Hopefully it would be useful to many people out there.

    Many blessings

    Thanks so much, Mom35! You have given me hope. Lived in Texas for a while - it's a great state. Hot, but great.

    Is the town nice? I'm talking about for families with kids. How are the schools? Is the area safe?

    The town is safe, I dont know about the other side of the border. The town is quiet and not much to do but there are lots of families here-it seems very family oriented. The teenagers that we have encountered are all very polite and respectful. I dont know how the schools rank, my kiddo is 21 and stayed in Dallas. I am not sure if there are any private schools here. Also, if one has a spouse looking for employment, this may cause a dilemma, though there is apparently a recent oil boom nearby with more opportunities to come.

    I dont see why not. Not only that, they paid for my relocation in addition to 24000 for bonus. Well, they said up to 4000 for relocation. They also paid my first month rent and my deposit.

    Well, this is how mine is set up: After my three month orientation I count six months and will receive 1/4 (25%) of the 24000 which is 6000. Then six months later 6000 more until two years at which time the full 24000 will be paid. So I am not bound to stay for two years, but I wont get the full 24 if I dont. Now, reading my papers it says if they pay for your relocation, which can be up to 4000 (this would include moving expenses) you would have to repay that if leave before 24 months. With me, they didnt pay for moving expenses due to I didnt move anything down here-to this day I have a blow up bed in my apartment, and my computer and that is it! That is what accounts for relocation. They paid for my first months rent 675, and deposit 250, they paid for me to come down for interview 315, and they paid for my stay in the laquinta for m;y interview. They also paid for me to stay at laquinta whilst I set up my apartment deal. Now, they started me at 20.39 as new grad, and now that on night shift 22.39. Yes, that is lower than the 24 that dallas pays, however the rent is cheaper and with not much to do I am not spending much money. You wont have a long drive to work either, I think the whole town can be traveled in less than 10 minutes. In today's economy it is rare to get any type of bonus at all, not to mention a job. Weekend differential is paid, though I havent worked weekend yet, but was told I would make around four dollars more on weekend. After orientation you can work as much as desire. I even talked to a woman that lives in Houston and works PRN for fort duncan and they pay for her to drive in and stay at the laquinta for whatever they need her for, then she just drives back to Houston after her few days of working. So, I feel this is a great place to start and I hope it helps those who are willing to relocate.
