Hi guys, this is an update from mom35. I graduated in Dallas with my adn in May 2011. After applying feverishly to every hospital in DFW (literally hundreds of apps) and no luck, I began applying out of town and now work in Eagle Pass at Fort Duncan Regional. I really enjoy the hospital! Fellow RN's are super nice and I am on Med surge floor. My time management is lacking, but the other rn's have encouraged me saying that it is normal for a new grad to have trouble with time management. Seems as though the hospital is always looking for nurses so anyone willing to relocate-this is an option. Now, the reason people come here, get their experience and leave is this: it is a small place with not much to do. I am considering workling more because I am getting really bored on my days off, but that will change once I start the bsn online program. The mall is small, there is a walmart and the Kickapoo casino, which I have not been to yet. The people here in the town are very kind and it is full of families! I love seeing all the families out together from great-grandkids and the grandparents, very endearing to see everyone together. If you have a spouse they may not find a job here. I think there is an oil boom near by, at least that is what I have been told, so they expect the place to start growing. Otherwise, if you dont require lots of extra entertainment like museums, big shopping and such-it is not a bad place at all!! As far as the hospital and fellow nurses-they are a great bunch!!
