I don't but I know people that do. Wages are high but it is hard to find housing.

Nursing wages are not high at all. And the hospitals there are severely understaffed while patient census has shot up.

Housing is almost non-existent. A friend is making all kinds of money but living in a garage with about six other guys. Crime, while still low, is increasing.

Hey! I'm working in Williston, ND. Housing is a huge challenge. Wages do not accurately reflect the current cost of living of the town. Hospital has several open positions however and they hire new grads. PM me for any other questions 😀

Hi,

A friend of mine just called to say that they were paying CNAs $50/hr. I find that hard to believe, but a few years back there were rumors of nurses making huge bucks in Alaska for short-term assignments. Just curious but how much are nurses making in this town? Thanks.

I am also considering applying for an ER RN position at Mercy Medical in Williston. Just wondering what it's like and if it's too crazy.

I highly doubt our CNAs make that much at Mercy. New grads RN BSNs start off in the low $20s depending on the unit/specialty. Going the Mercy's ER for codes/trauma alert/codes is the only time I see the ER but I know those nurses are always busy, and they'd prefer the ER RNs to have experience, obviously. But I'm sure they'd train the right person as we are fairly short staffed.
