    Ok here goes. Hello to all the Missouri nurses out there. I have been a LPN since 1997. I lived in the Saint Charles Missouri area for about 30 yrs. I currently reside in a small town called Palmyra in Missouri. I love living here just cant make a living here. I moved here 6yrs ago after getting married to a man from Palmyra. Its still in the state of Missouri but my wages as a LPN have been cut in half. Here is my questions? When I went to nursing school the IV class was not included so I am not Iv cert. The only place I can find that will iv cert me is interlock pharm in St. Louis but thats a 2hr drive and gas cost so much now. Does anyone out there know anywhere closer? Now I also live close to Quincy Illinois and was wanting to get a Illinois license. I have a compact multistate license. If I apply for endorsement to Illinois and get a Illinois license will I still have my compact multi Missouri license? Im not moving to Illinois just want to be able to work there. Please help!

    Hello. I'm new to these forums. I'm an RN living and working in Central Tx. Recently married a Missouri man and am just wondering what nursing is like in Missouri. Currently I am working for Seton Family of Hospitals in the Austin area and our max is 5pts/nurse. Thank goodness we have finally started moving toward a safer ratio, though we're not there yet. Studies show that mortality rates increase when a registered nurse exceeds 4 pts on a medical-surgical unit. Anyways, I'd love to hear your input on nursing in Mo. Especially the Springfield area.
