There is a hiring freeze in the Nashville, TN. area as well for LPN, LVN + RN.
Yet I have seen a list of RN's wanted abd Needed in Nashville, TN. This week of April 13, 2009.
You might consider contacting facilities in Other States.
Here are a few you might be interested in:
Saint Thomas Hospital,
Baptist Hospiyal also owned by Saint Thomas and Vanderbilt Hosp.
Inside Vanderbilt is a specialty hosp. called Vanderbilt Stallworth but they do not pay worth a crap and You pay for Parking in their own building as well.
Saint Thomas has a great reputation and IS NPW HIRING RN's.
You might want to check in Kentucky in Louiseville a major Medical town.
In WV. try Bellefont and Kings Daughters but they are near lots of Nursing schools so pay is barely above minimum wages even for nurses and dont bother applying at Kings Daughters if you smoke they won't even consider you.
Hope this Helps.
