Thanks baker. It did seem a little low. The HR did credit me for only partial of this year but by the time i would be starting itbwould be 11 years.  Do you think working for the valley is not a good idea? What hospitals do you suggest?

Heythere ICUman. I recently applied and interciewed for cath lab in henderson hospital. They are offering $46/hr. Not sure what the going rate is but it seems kind of low? What do you think

VHS is the lowest paying hospital system in Las Vegas. Up to you. St. Rose will be the highest hourly. I'll look up the hourly wage in the union book when I get back in town for 11 years exp. 

You could always try negotiating with the recruiter? Henderson hospital is nice. I float there sometimes.

Thanks.  I appreciate all the help.  I spoke with the recruiter and she said it was non-negotiable

I work currently for vhs it isn’t bad, their benefit package isn’t amazing, but ur isn’t horrible either. HCAs pay scale is similar but their benefits are better. St rose has recently closed a lot of critical care positions so I haven’t seen a lot posted for then recently.

Hope that helps!!

@ICUman

Hey there!

My husband just got a job offer out in Las Vegas and we are having to move pretty suddenly to Las Vegas here and I am in search for jobs. 

Just wanted to say your threads have been so helpful. Ive read some and have been able to apply to a couple jobs. 

Do you have any recommendations for a nurse with 6 years of experience with the last 3 being in Medical ICU setting as well as one travel ICU float experience under my belt?

I did apply to a job at UMC and a job at St Rose Sienna campus. Ideally, I would like to work in a level 1 trauma center but I know that UMC is the only one in Nevada. 

What hospitals seem to have high RN satisfaction?

What hospitals pay best?

What hospitals get the most experience as a ICU RN?

What hospitals should I avoid?

Any pros, cons, suggestions, thoughts, etc are appreciated! Thank you so much!

St Rose pays the best, followed by HCA: Sunrise, Mountain View and Southern Hills; and then UHS: Valley, Summerlin, Desert Springs, Spring Valley, Centennial Hills and Henderson.  UMC  is a busy, hectic public safety net hospital and employees seem to like the old-fashioned pension.   The most exciting cases are likely to be seen at UMC, Sunrise and maybe Valley.  St Rose probably has the best nurse:patient ratios.  There is also North Vista Hospital, the VA hospital and MOFH (Air Force).

Hi imshula. Dean gave a pretty good summary... 

I would rather PM you with a more detailed response if you are open to it for the sake of anonymity.  

RN Satisfaction: San Martin and Summerlin Hospitals

Most ICU experience (high acuity): UMC, Sunrise (trauma centers)

Pay : St Rose (either campus)
