    Relocation to Denver

    Your poll question is not a "yes" or "no" question. The answer is BSN. But experience counts for everything in CO I think.

    Swedish, Englewood CO

    Low pay, poor staffing, out of date/ no equipment--due to managers getting bonuses if their allotted funds are not spent. That is what I've heard from a friend working in their ED. RUN!!!

    Moving to Denver in 2014, Needs Help with Hospitals, Pay, Etc

    $10 says it's Swedish offering the bonus!

    anyone in northern colorado hire new grads?

    No I think they only hire experienced nurses. I've had several offers from them with only 1.5 years in my specialty though!

    Like 2 weeks here. But I also had a compact license, I don't know if that mAkes a difference.

    Circumcision and Pain?

    No. Our pediatricians use Tylenol PO and lidocaine locally

    Pay range for LPNs?

    No ft Collins and Loveland are not mountainous but very close (20 min drive). As for snow, we've only gotten flurries this year so far! It comes, and melts usually within 24 hours

    Denver Health vs. Centura Health vs. HealthONE

    I have a friend who works at Swedish and hates it. Benefits, supplies/equipment, etc are terrible per her--salaries are also low. She has taken on a second job to supplement income because she signed with them and would have to repay her sign on bonus, plus any education costs if she were to leave. I also have a friend that is a pharmacist there. He has pretty much the same sentiment.

    anyone in northern colorado hire new grads?

    I do LOVE working at CRMC!!! I hear negative things about working in the pt tower on med/surg etc, but I think working on a specialty unit makes it much more enjoyable--we are in our own little world. I work with a great group of women and we are really team oriented in WCS. I don't know much about the ER, and if that is where you really want to be---congrats! If not....WCS would love to have an experienced peds nurse like you I'm sure! As far as fingerprints etc, Wyoming took forever to transfer my license---the background check took the longest....but I called and hounded them, and it got done on time. I would give them a phone call or two if I were you just to be sure. They do have an employee gym, but I've never been there as it is at a different location not at the hospital.

    Welcome to CRMC! I work L and D there! I live in Ft. Collins, and love it there! However, usually peds in the ED get one of our Peds nurses from WCS to come down if it's anything more than a cough. CRMC hires new grads straight out of school, and the WY resident requirement is gone for the new grad program. I commuted on the east coast, the commute for me from here to CRMC is the same amount of time but with the 75-80 mph you are allowed to go and no traffic, it is much much nicer!

    Need Tips or Tricks on Remembering IV Stop Times

    Wow, how can they hold your paychecks?!?! That sounds like crazy talk on their part!!! What about bedside charting? Or taking the MAR with you when you start and stop the infusion, marking both times on the MAR?
