My husband and I have thrown around the idea of relocating to Denver. I am interested to know good hospitals there and in the surrounding areas. Also, I work for healthsouth, is there an Inpatient facility there and if so, how is it? Do any of the hospitals hire LPNs? I ask bc here in MO our University hospital only hires in clinics or if you are enrolled for RN. Where I work, LPNs are of great use and we get to do it all (with in our scope). I'd love some recommendations for facilities. I am interested in hospitals and rehab centers (physical medicine). What areas do you suggest to stay away from (like when I lived in NV, stay away from North Las Vegas). Are there set shifts? (12's, 8's, eow etc... ) and how about pay? I make 13.65 and am a new grad, my facility pays the highest in our town-plus shift diff and weekend shift diff. The other hospitals pay around 10-11/hr for new grads. I do have years of tech/nurse aid experience which has helped.
Anyway, thanks for any info. i tried to see if there was a similar thread already started.
Oh, how are the winters anyway?
