hi I'm a preop/post op RN (no BSN yet) looking to move in the next 6-8 months. I'm open to most areas around Phoenix. we just got back from there, checked out Gilbert, Chandler, Norterra, Desert Ridge,Scottsdale...etc.
I have 9 years exp.: 4 years in Heart transplant/Cardiac step-dwn and 5 years preop/Phase II post op in a hospital currently.
Any thoughts on Desert Ridge Outpatient center or The Surgical Hospital of Phx?
I think I would like an outpatient Ambulatory Center rather than a hospital setting but its not a deal breaker. where I work now we do not admit children. (the youngest I've cared for were young teens so children would be a little scary for me.)
Does anyone have any exp or input regarding outpt centers? Pay, benefits etc?
Is it harder for an experienced RN to land a job in the Phoenix area? I realize BSN is a big deal and I'm working on it. PLEASE any info would be helpful!!
