    RNs Relocating to Las Vegas

    The RN jobs are horrific. AVOID THE VALLEY HEALTH SYSTEM. It is a slave bin. They give you 10 patients on med-surg and 6 om IMC. Even, ICU I have heard of up to four. Basically, most of the hospitals are Valley Health System, HCA System, UMC, North Vista. That is who owns the few hospitals here.

    RNs Relocating to Las Vegas

    Hi, I wanted to tell you honestly about the Las Vegas nursing market. Please do not relocate to Las Vegas. First, the market is too small with too many little "start up" nursing programs churning out subpar new grads like water. Second, all the hospitals and nursing homes except UMC and North Vista are owned by only three different entities (we call it the Vegas Mafia). The influx of foreign nurses drive down the wage. There are no jobs here. You will be able to make a living here but not with ease. I am moving as soon as I can (by March or April). I have been a RN 20+ years and have never seen a market such as this. You mention the St Rose system. You need not apply unless you are a BSN. They are applying for magnet status. Thanks
