    LewisGale HCA vs Carilion in the Roanoke area

    Haha! A coal mine! Thank you Brenda! I think my minds made up.
  2. Hello fellow nurses! I would like some feedback from anyone who can give me any information regarding these hospitals and working conditions. I’m moving to the area from south Florida and I’m currently seeking a psych position. I have an interview with both facilities. HCA in Florida doesn’t have the best reputation but I’m not so sure in other states. Carilion is growing and appears to have a lot of opportunities in the future. LewisGale has a clinical ladder... please help!!
  3. Well, after waiting months for an interview(after graduating), I finally got a call back & have an interview scheduled for next week!! And my dream job nonetheless!!! I love psych & currently work with eating d/o clients(as an LPN). My interview is at a psych hospital, which I have never done acute inpatient psych before. Any pointers for the interview? Anything I should start brushing up on?? Thanks for your help!

    Advice needed, please!!!!!!

    Hi all! I've been an LPN for 7 years now and I am a recent RN grad. I have applied for numerous RN positions with no call backs EXCEPT for one..case management. Now, I know nothing about case management or have ever considered it. My passion is in psych nursing and eventually plan to get my psych NP. why I applied for this position? Due to the current surplus of nurses in south florida, there isn't many options out there AND I was on a website and saw the ad and just had a FEELING. Sure enough, I applied and got a call back the same day!! The position is a peds nurse case manager working in the welfare system. Sounds pretty cool! anyone else work in a similar environment? Though...I'm not sure if I'm making a mistake by giving up hands on nursing and I'm scared I'm going to end up regretting it!! Also, any pointers for the interview? Questions I should ask?? Thank you ladies & gents!! :yelclap:

    South Florida LPN needs help!!!!

    Haven't found anything either:crying2: I ended up landing a job in hollywood at a nursing home and it was a nightmare!! needless to say, I only lasted a week. Ive continued looking on the internet and asking around. I've gone to promed(they never call, and I always fax my availability) and maxim won't send me on assignments without my physical(which I have no money for right now). Still, nothing permanent. I'm trying to get into keiser's LPN to RN bridge program. I've had enough!!
