L&D in Texas- suggestions?

  1. 0 I'm currently living in the DFW area of TX and am a L&D nurse and the job situation is very sparse. So I am looking to travel to other cities in Texas to work, probably do like 7 on, 7 off and fly or drive home, depending on the distance. Does anyone have any recommendations on cities/hospitals that have good L&D reputations or bad ones? I don't know much about TX besides this area I'm in, so any ideas will be helpful. Thanks!

    I've heard that their L&D department is extremely busy. In addition, since the hospital is located in a less desirable part of the state, I've heard that the hiring managers will devise compressed schedules to recruit and retain nurses who live outside the local area.

    Have you tried Medical Center of Arlington? I know that it is an "HCA facility" and some people have issues with that, but I think they would be worth checking out. They are doing at least 4000 deliveries a year and growing. They just added a bunch of new perinatologists and they just opened up a 29 bed antepartum unit with plans to add 2 new floors to the Women's Center. You may also try Methodist Mansfield. Not as busy but I think they are growing as well.

    Good luck!
