Hi....Austin is an awesome and beautiful town. Healthcare jobs go up and down, but there is always something for experienced nurses. Lots of agencies and home health. The big hospitals...St. Davids (HCA owned!!!!) Seton (Catholic owned, not for profit) S&W Hospitals (not for profit research/med school) have campuses all over. I live Northside, like it better than south. Also you have UT health center..big. Heart Hospital, Ortho places, lots of surgical centers. I have worked in all three at one time or another, the non profits S & W and Seton are much better in my opinion. Seton has magnet status. Look at Round Rock Seton WIlliamson hospital and Round Rock Scott and White Hospital, you will love them. Just run from the HCA facilities. understaffing and corporate bottom dollar at its best. You can PM me for more info. Happy hunting, go get them. Brackenridge is the Trauma Center run by Seton, owned by the city if you like that environment. If you like BIG, go to Temple, just up the road to S & W. one of the largest level one hospitals in the state with med school ( A&M).
