    IBCLCers? Started down the road, anyone else?

    Thanks for the information...I just started the course online and have looked into volunteering locally but unfortunately there isn't a La Leche League here and I've emailed the WIC staff to volunteer but no response. I hadn't considered the IBCLC mentor route because I didn't know of any locally. I was going to do pathway 1 that required 1000 hours using healthcare related experience. I think based on my job options (hopeful of employment!) that will be the route for me. Are you using a mentor through volunteering?
  2. I agree. Having spousal support is important. I just finished nursing school, hubbie is in AF, we have three kiddos middle school to 18 months, the last was born during his deployment and smack dap in the middle of nursing school!!! You can do it just make sure your husband is behind you 100 percent!!!! Good luck!

    Me too...I just started an online nursing graduate course on Human Lactation. I am however having difficulty finding a way to gain experience. I recently graduated and have my RN and am actively pursuing employment. However, there aren't any L&D positions open at the hospital here. I did apply to a pediatric doc's office where I could use my experiences there to apply towards my cert if I get the job. How are you getting your experience?

    Air Force reserve nursing in Montana

    There aren't any AF reserve units near Malmstrom. There is however, the Montana Air National Guard at the airport but I'm not sure if they have a clinic or nurse positions.
  5. Hello. What's the general starting hourly pay for a new grad in Great Falls?

    is the BON in MT slow or fast?

    got my license yesterday...took about two and half weeks total to get my endorsement!

    is the BON in MT slow or fast?

    I sent in my application for endorsement last week. They processed my application in two days and sent me an email confirming the status of my application. It depends on your current license's board of nursing verification process...mine is from Kansas and they don't belong to the automated verification system called NURSYS so it has been a week and I haven't heard from MT BON on receipt of verification. Hopefully it will happen soon...I'm ready to find a job! Good luck to you.

    New Grad Moving to Great Falls

    Congrats on the job! What is PCU? Differently terminology than in KS...I'm thinking Peds? I have to apply for my MT license by endorsement first and probably won't look to start work until September. That way my girls are in school and we've established somewhat of a normal routine after the big move!!!!

    Hey Julie. How did the interview go?

    New Grad Moving to Great Falls

    UGH!!!!! I would say keeping trying...the hospital here does the same thing...I had several friends graduate last fall and it took them over a month to hear anything definitive about a position. Best of luck. I am ready to start working but I owe it to my family to take the summer off and get settled before our life becomes so busy again. By the way, what brings you to Great Falls? Mine is a military move.

    Well that's great news about the recruiter call, I wish you the best of luck! Sorry to hear about your experiences in Vegas and Colorado. I live in Kansas and the people here are really great.

    Thanks so much for the information. Have you ever heard of the hospital hiring new grads from out of state?

    New Grad Moving to Great Falls

    I haven't applied yet because I don't want to start work until after my kids start school in August. The only thing I did was look at the position openings on Benefis' website and then I posted here hoping to gain some insight into shift hours for L&D. Where are you coming from and what area are you hoping to get into?

    New Grad Moving to Great Falls

    Hello. I am a new grad moving to Great Falls Montana in mid June. I am interested in Labor and Delivery and wondered if anyone knew what the schedule was like for L&D at Benefis. Thanks!
