Can anyone tell me how the CURRENT job market is in the Ashland / Louisa area of Kentucky? I am LPN and was wondering how hard it is to get a job there. I heard Kings Daughters laid off a bunch. I posted this in the KY forum and so far, no one responded. Thanks for any info! pat

I know bellefonte was hiring some people, some new grad RNs I know just got jobs there. I'm not sure about the Louisa area. But you are right KDMC laid off about 400 a few months ago. Also check out st marys & cabell in Huntington, wv...Its only 20 mins from Ashland area.

Another option (right across the bridge) is SOMC In portsmouth, Ohio...they hire ALL The time...St. Mary's is also a GREAT hospital as is Cabell Huntington Hospital...(Both Sophie already mentioned) KDMC DID lay off a LOT of people but they've hired a lot back (from what I've heard, i know a few people who work there) plus KDMC has multiple offices throughout northern ky and southern ohio...
