Anyone here from Houston, TEXAS


Hi! In a few years about 3-5 years I would like to move down to Houston. I really like it down there better than Kansas City, Missouri. However, I am not familiar with hospitals down there and I was wondering do any of you work in a hospital with 8 hour shifts. Here in Kansas City, where I am really miserable at many of the hospitals 8 hour shifts are often unheard of now. I am doing some research and a move for me will take some extensive careful planning.

I know somebody who can assist you with finding a hospital for you. Let me know if you are interested. She helped me too in processing my papers.

She loves it right now but has talked about doing some traveling nursing soon. If you'd like to talk to her about her nursing experiences there, send me a PM or email me and I'll let you know how to reach her. :)
