My husband and I are looking at relocating to Spokane from Phoenix, Az sometime in 2013. We have two small kids and we're looking for a greener, smaller city to raise our family in. We have a few friends that live up there or are from there that recommend it as a great city.
Here's my nursing background. I am an RN with my BSN and 5 years experience. In that 5 years, I've worked on a tele unit, in the ED, wound and ostomy care (which I am certified in) and am currently working as a clinical documentation specialist. I'm prefer to work in the ED (which I've spent most of my time in) or as a CDS but would like to try ICU as well. Though I am open to any opportunity to enhance my nursing knowledge.
I've seen the threads on here regarding new grads having a hard time finding a job, but what's the job market like for nurses with experience? I'm also curious as to what the nursing environment is like. Are the nurses treated well? Patient to nurse ratio?
Any info and advice are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
