There are jobs for LPN's all over Wyoming. I would be really cautious about working at the pen in Rawlins. I talked to traveler that had taken a 6 month contract there and she said it is a h**l hole to work in. She lasted the longest of any traveler in over a year. She said that there is only about 3 employees, the rest are travelers. She told me that she had never seen so much back biting, anamosity between shifts, no working together at all between shifts or nurses on the same shift, etc. She said that no matter how poor or hungry she and her family were, she would never work there again. I had thought about sending one of my flyers about my nursing service company to them to see if I could pick up some shifts. After talking to her, I decided against it. Rawlins only has 1 nursing home, has a SNF / ICF in the hospital. I have never lived in Rawlins, but are through there quite often and like what I have seen of the town. I know that the hospital is always looking for staff.
You might want to check out the Women's pen in Lusk. I do know that they use LPN's and have been hiring. They are also supposed to reopen the hospital in Lusk sometime this winter. You are close to the Black Hills and all they have to offer. I know that Custer, Spearfish, etc. in South Dakota are also looking for nurses.
Going to the other side of the state, Kemmerer usually needs help in their LTC. I picked up a weekend shift over there a year ago. I was impressed with their facility. It is such a cute little town. Again you are in a beautiful part of the state with access to Jackson, Yellowstone, etc. My husband was from Rock Springs, and before we got together he had planned on one day retiring to Kemmerer. Think plans have changed now, but you never know what will come down the road. We still do lots of work there for my husbands business. I love their Ace Hardware store. It is the old fashioned type of general store, with a little bit of everything in it. He keeps a tight rein on the checkbook and the credit cards when I go in there. LOL
Thermopolis had an ad in the Casper paper last week about needing LPN' s at their nursing home. Don't remember what the sign on bonus was.
Here is a link that you can check out about LTC facilities nationwide.
Hope this gives you some more ideas on jobs in Wyoming. If you have questions, etc. don't hesitate to contact me.
