    Advice for a local boy returning to the islands

    Canadian wanting to work in HI

    After passing the NCLEX in Hawaii, if you want to travel to another state and practice you have to fill out a "Licensure by Endorsement" form. Unlike Canada where you would have to sit the boards for every province you want to practice in, the US is...

    Agency nursing in Oregon

    Very common at all the Legacy hospitals. 10a-10p, 2 or 3p to 2/3a is also not unheard of. I've never worked Providence but I've heard they have those unusual shifts also...

  16. I've checked with Maxium and Intellistaf and neither one does AMC in Portland. I'd like to do this hospital for registry not as staff. Anyone work there for registry? Which one? Maybe there's a bonus for ya' for bringing me on board? -Lance
