Don't believe people when they say hospitals in Vegas won't hire people from out of state. I moved from out of state and had my pick of hospital to work at easily. We actually like it it here so far. The pay is GREAT (about 55/hr for Per Diem) in a critical care unit at St. Rose. The standard of living is pretty low. Just put your app out to multiple places and see where you get bites. Never hurts to prod HR a little either if you don't hear anything back soon ;)

hi Mary when did you move to LV? Can l send you PM? I hope you dont mind

This does not make me feel better about possibly relocating... Any help/advice/opinions about NV hospitals/nursing would be greatly appreciated!

I will relocating from out of state (Minnesota), and I am getting nervous reading all of these posts. I am a new grad, who had my pick form multiple RN jobs in MN, and I am nervous Las Vegas Hospitals will see my applications and throw them out. Besides getting my NV license, is there any other ways I can show them I am serious about moving?

Well let me be the ONLY one who actually LOVES Las Vegas.... for kids.... he only place you can go downhill skiing at Mount Charleston about 40 miles away.... boat on Lake Meade about ten miles away or hike Red Rock about 20 miles away... sure the school system sorta sucks as they are the fourth largest school district in the country and rely on the casinos for funding but if you can afford it there are dozens of private schools that are world renowned and achieve so many awards on the STEM subjects. I'm originally from Indiana and I do NOT miss having to scrape my windshield of solid ice. There is always something new and exciting and every couple of weeks they have some marathon or community thing going one... monthly art district events... and the shows... good grief.... Sure... the summers can get HOT but hey... it's not the heat.... it's the humidity and I can tolerate it as long as it's under 110... above that I'm staying in but I did that too in Indiana when it got below zero. And I can find more ways to cool down a lot easier than I can to warm up..... If you a drug, gambling, or drinking problem then this is NOT the place for you... that is available 24 hours a day... and sure there are gang killings on a regular basis but if you're not a gang member then no problem... One thing though... if you like riding your bike like I do they are hard on bicyclists here... every month one is getting killed by a car. A lot of transients without a license or car insurance... you will definitely see THAT when you pay your car insurance.

anywho.... I love Las Vegas!

I know this is an old post, but I saw your comment. I'm a new grad from MA with a BSN. I am moving out to Las Vegas in a few days. I got my temporary NV license and have continuously been turned down without even a phone call. It would be my dream to be in L&D or the NICU. Do you have any advice on how to get started down that career path as a new graduate? Look forward to hearing from you!
