    Bullhead city/Kingman regional medical

    Hello I was recently flown in to interview with Arizona regional hospital. I am skeptical about relocating to the area even though its only 1.5 hours away from Vegas. Anyone have any insight on the area and things to do around town?

    Arrowhead Hospital

    Hello can anyone tell me about Arrowhead hospital? The good, bad and the ugly I have a telephone interview with them next wednesday and would love to hear what nurses think of the hospital? Is it a great place to work? Or does it have a high turnover rate how is the pay compared to other local hospitals and does it have a bad rep for terrible doctors and nurses? Thanks for any input as it will be greatly appreciated.

    RN vs NP vs DNP

    I understood what the original poster meant by stating that she did not want to be at the bottom. I too have felt like floor nurses are considered worker bee's that we don't always get the respect of our co-workers, we are replaceable especially as novice's on our way to expert the journey can be a rocky one. I have also considered going back to school, thinking it will at least get me the respect I feel I deserve. I am also aware that it is the experience combined with the education that commands respect and education alone is not a quick fix.......just my two cents. It doest matter how you get to the finish line (education wise) there is no short cut for gaining knowledge that only comes from/with experience.

    San Antonio

    Thanks but I have tried master train and a program called trncc or TNCC? But that is for people that work in the ER i have tried Alamo College but they only offer dialysis training and EKG courses........I signed up with ANCC for critical care nurses (they have an online program)but they only offer their program to hospitals as an orientation program Im assuming they use it as part of the nursing residency program or whatever they call it now?

    Anybody know where I can take a critical care course at in San Antonio? I really want to step my game up and be the best nurse that I can be and being new and having to wait so long for employment due to the economy has really hurt me somewhat any suggestions would be great and so appreciated :)

    Northwest Indiana hospitals hiring new grads?

    I found it very hard to find and secure a nursing job as a new grad and still do. There is alot of mis information out there about job opportunities for new nurses. People are taking out these huge loans and sticking it out through clinicals competing in these dog eat dog type situations, just to find out the real shortage is with experienced nurses and no one wants to hire new grads because who wants to pay two Rn's for the work of one? And on top of that no company wants to grow a new nurse no one will pull you to the side and educate a new nurse on real world nursing culture, how protective you have to be and how it is really like highschool, what is nurse retention and job satisfaction, or security? Does it only exsist in books? What nurse remembers who gave them their golden opportunity to practice and that "She" did not know it all? How many remember the journey they traveled to become the competent professionals they are now? Just keep looking hopefully there is a job out there just for you and I hope you find your thing in nursing since there are so many different avenues for us out there. I wish you nothing but the best goodluck medic6070.

    Northwest Indiana hospitals hiring new grads?

    I have been warned about my comments here on the board and I clearly understand why. I feel it is important to be free to express your experience be it good or bad, but at the same time you never know who it is your communicating with on these sites as people are very quick to hide who they are. (Im not one of those) Nurses can be petty and mean for no reason other than they can and what are you gonna do about it? So with that in mind knowing that the nursing world can be a small one, I wont continue to give them the fuel they need to be petty even though I feel no fuel is really needed.
