Would appreciate hearing from nurses about the pt to nurse ratio at your hospital. Do you feel like your hospital appreciates you....
Expected pay for med-surg RN with many years of experience.

Thanks

Not a nurse, can't answer your questions, but there is no doubt that if you are looking for a hospital position, you must checkout one of the "Baptist" hospitals. Baptist Northeast is a fine regional hospital from what I hear.

Thanks for your input. Will be renting, not buying, as I see your job title.

I appreciate your message about renting, and quite frankly, recommend that you do. Many nurses are free spirits who enjoy the freedom of moving and serving in many different parts of our nation and world. Moving to a new community without the certainty of tenure in any industry makes the initial rental the best option most generally.

I am sorry that you thought my only reason to respond was to sell you a home. It is a sad case that people of my profession have become stereotypically always selling. I work hard to debunk that attitude.

I only hope that my opinions and facts are useful in your move.

I am a nurse here! But I work in a pediatric facility (long term care). I I have 3-8 patients. I also do pediatric home health nursing.

Patient ratio - depends on the area of nursing! Pay for an experienced RN...24-34$/hr.

I'm not a nurse but i work as a i.r. tech at u of l. i would also recommend norton healthcare. i've never worked there and don't really know the nurse to bed ratio, but i know they have a firm grip on this town and i think job security is definately becoming a factor here these days.

As a para-dum-dum, I've dealt with my share of ER nurses and have been able to pick up on the overall feel.

Avoid Kindred like the plague...mostly because of the plague. It is crawling with MRSA and incompetent, lazy staff.

St. Mary's isn't much better but at least the majority of the staff can articulate words and enjoys a laugh from time to time. I do admit they seem to have a sense of team spirit.

Baptist is usually very busy. I have meet some of the finest, most professional, caring, and intelligent nurses there.

I haven't had much experience with Jewish outside of the ER. The majority of their work force seems older.

UL is very hit or miss.

Don't forget that there are several other hospitals right across the river in Indiana.
