    Phoenix or San Diego area?

    I have a huge dilemma. I've been an RN for 13 years now in Ohio. We are planning on moving out west but I am having a hard time deciding between the Phoenix area or the San Diego area. Of course I would want northern San Diego where it seems a bit affordable but I would want to make sure that there are an abundance of jobs and decent apartments to rent. Anyone have any thoughts??

    Rejected from PCNA job at Cleveland Clinic

    Did you apply for a particular floor? That may be the problem. That unit may have rejected you but another unit may not. Call your recruiter and find out if you can apply for another unit. I know many units that are super short staffed on PCNA's.
  3. I have been an RN in acute care for the last 13 years. I also have my BSN. I really wanna get out of Ohio and relocate to San Diego. What areas are the most affordable to live in but still safe areas? Do you think that I would have a difficult time finding a job? What hospitals are the best and highest paid to work at? I'm trying to get an idea of how much I would be making versus the cost of living.

    How many of you work at Mayo? Thoughts?

    Thank you for replying. I feel like this whole website is pretty dead. I've noticed that some current threads are like years old. Do you know of any other website that's like this one where I could also speak with other nurses?

    Who attends Youngstown State University?

    Anyone attending YSU for nursing? I'm starting there in August for their online RN-BSN program. Just wondering if there is anyone out there enrolled in the entry nursing program or the RN-BSN program.

    Cleveland Clinic VS University Hospital

    I work at CCF and I have to say that I love it. I've been there for almost 13 years. Their benefits can't be beat. I have basically paid nothing all these years and I've had 3 major surgeries along with multiple doctor's appointments. The pay scale is new. They realized that the pay wasn't great compared to to other hospitals so they re-did it. I make $35 an hour. Seriously. It's true that UH does treat nurses better but I have never had an issue. Bottom line is.. Do your job. Take care of the patients. Don't have an attitude or act like the Clinic owes you something because they don't. They are the 2nd best hospital in the country. If you don't help them to uphold that honor then they have no problem getting rid of you. I agree with that. All the seasoned nurses that I work with and know love it there. It's when new grads come in and have attitudes and act like they have been nursing for years that have issues there. It's your decision but choose wisely. Good Luck to you!!

    How many of you work at Mayo? Thoughts?

    How many of you work at Mayo? Whether you are a new grad or a seasoned nurse? What do you think? Are they a good employer? Good ratios? I'm thinking of working there when I move in the next 2 or 3 years. I have got 13 years in the acute care setting and I've been in Neuro however, I've done all specialties. I'm hoping that I would at least start at $35 however, I've heard that that's a reasonable expectation. Any thoughts or opinions would be great.

    Best hospital systems to work for in the San Diego area??

    I've done neuro for several years so I think thats where I will stay.

    Where are all the nursing jobs?

    I cannot wait to get out of Ohio. I really hope that I don't have a hard time.

    Where are all the nursing jobs?

    I'm going to be moving from Ohio to anywhere. Looking at Phoenix, Sacramento or Vegas but I am considering all possibilities. I have 13 years experience as an RN in an acute care setting. Where are all the jobs? I've been reading about so many different cities where the job market is awful. I don't want to move somewhere that there are very limited number of jobs. Any suggestions?
  11. I am looking to possibly move to the Las Vegas area. I am an RN with 13 years experience in acute care with Neuro primarily. What's the average wage out there? Which hospitals are the best?

    California or Phoenix??

    Thank you for the reply! I considered Sacramento for awhile. I will have to look back into that. Thanks!
  13. I'm looking to possibly move to San Diego and I want to work for a good hospital system with good pay and benefits. Any suggestions? Also I have bee an RN for 13 years.

    California or Phoenix??

    I know that I probably should not be posting this here but there doesn't seem to be any threads that are actually active at this time. I'm hoping to find some real answers. I live in Ohio. I have 13 years experience at the Cleveland Clinic main campus in Neuro. I'm currently working on my BSN so I will have it when I move. I really wanna move to San Diego or somehwere on the coast but I don't know if my chances of getting a job out there are good and honestly, I'm kinda afraid that I'll have a hard time surviving out there due to the cost of living. I also was told that Phoenix would be a great place to go. High paying RN positions and low cost of living but they have more nurses than jobs. Any advice at all? I need to get out of Ohio and I definitely wanna move to the southwest. Help?
  15. I've posted a few times about working at Mayo but I'm very interested in working there when I move. Right now I work at The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. I am hoping that 12 years at The Clinic will help me getting into Mayo. What do you all think?
