Hi fellow nurses! I hope you can share some information about the working conditions at Mission Regional Medical Center, the nurse-patient ratio, and how much the usual starting salary is for a Registered nurse.

With regards to the location, what can you say about the standard of living in this area (MIssion, texas)?

I'm a foreign nurse and I'm contemplating on working with the hospital I mentioned above. Hope you can enlighten me. Thanks so much!

I live in McAllen, right next to Mission. I am only a nursing student so I can not tell you much. I haven't heard anything bad about the hospital. There are many hospitals here to choose from. You would have no problems finding a job. This area is growing very quickly. You can find a nice home for about 125,000 - 150,000. The weather is great always sunny and warm. There is a hospital in McAllen that will give a sign on bonus of 50,000 for a four year contract and I believe pay for moving expenses and 25,000 for a 2 year contract. The name is McAllen Medical Center. We have many phillipino nurses here I believe they even have their own club. I hope this helps.

thanks for the info, me33, but in as much as I want to choose the hospital I want to work with, Mission is the only one right now which offers a H1C visa so we Filipinos can work in the US. That is the reason why I want to know any comments about the hospital and the place first before I grab the opportunity.

I see. Well all I can tell you is that I love it here. I am originally from Chicago. I would never move back there. I have been here in the valley since 89. Have you looked up any websites that mention mission. You can also type in McAllen or the Rio Grande Valley. I think there is a website called realtor.com. You check out some of the houses in the area. My parents own a apartment complex. The two bedrooms rent for 525.00 that includes the cable and the water bill. They have had a lot of nurses live there. If there is anything else I can help you with just let me know.
