    Many Turn to Craigslist For Lifesaving Drugs

    It's a symptom of a bigger problem and yes, there is some risk, but this practice is probably helping more people than it hurts.

    I left Fort Collins 8 years ago for better job opportunities. In general Larimer county is a fairly choice place to live/work and it can be competitive - be prepared to expand your job search to surrounding locales (cheyenne, greeley, denver). An...

    Wyoming State Hospital

    Not sure about WSH but the other state facility - Wyoming Life Resource Center in Lander - is extensively advertising all over the region for nurses (and other positions) right now. Avoid them at all costs. I'll bet they have had over 100% turnove...
  4. I live near a Reservation. i have checked into IHS jobs and they seem to want RNs that have L/D experience. I applied with them and never heard back (i dont have l/d experience). There is also indian preference for those positions. I personal...

    Wife is an RN, Can't find job in Las Vegas

    Do yourself a favor and get a year of experience in MN before trying to relocate to LV. It could be very difficult for you to get into a hospital job as a new grad especially since you don't have the "local" advantage of having done clinicals there,...

    Utah RN pay, Salt Lake City area

    Can anyone speak of the market conditions for nurses in the southern part of the state - specifically St George? Are they any different than SLC?

    Paper charting in acute care

    Rocking in the same boat, friend. I work in a facility that still uses paper MARS and an outdated computer program for charting. I can't believe it's still legal.
  8. Nothing like reviving a 3 year old thread but I'm really struggling with finding childcare for 9 and 5 year olds and wondering about how to get them into extracurricular activities when I do not have a set schedule.
  9. If given the opportunity to gain the right experience they can be prepared for about anything. RNs and BSNs run into the same problem - it's not all about education.
  10. My employer could care less if I have a BSN. My manager does not have hers. I think it will depend a lot on your geographic location as to what employers requirements will be, as has been stated before in this thread. Educational "requirements" a...

    Wyoming Medical Center's 2015 GN residency program

    I believe the OP is referring to Wyoming Medical Center in Casper.

    Moving to Another Area - New Grad

    Post your resume online. Recruiters often will direct you to the underserved critical access hospitals in rural areas.

    Nurses ‘Doctoring’ Without the Doctor in Rural America

    I live in a rural area...we have 2 obgyn docs that are quite obviously the " leftovers" that probably wouldn't make it anywhere they had competition. There is also a NP who does women's health visits. I just called to get an appt for my annual. The...

    Nursing shortage???

    I live in a rural "shortage" area and am seeing evidence that is not necessary the case anymore. There are 2 RNs resigning this month from my unit and they were able to replace them immediately - as well as hire a float to cover vacations. However ...
