Well, took a huge plunge and applied to the Mayo Clinic Health System err Hospital? in Eau Claire. I applied for ICU as i seen there was an opening. I was surprised by a few things: Pay was advertised at 28.93 minimum?! That's ~$6 more than I make now. Hours of work are 64-72? 8hr shifts in the ICU? How does that work? Good, bad, indifferent?What's the area like? I like the fact that I'm a short drive from camping and recreation sites, close to the cities if i ever desire that headache of driving/parking again. Close to Duluth (more recreation). And its similar size to Bismarck, ND. Yet cheaper?Is this a happy place to live? And work?
