Going on the Road

  1. In response to a wage freeze followed by a 9% pay cut, along with a manager who has no respect for her employees.........

    I have take a travel position in Colorado for 13 weeks. I am surprised that any nurses still work at that facility.

    If you ever move to Spokane, stay far away from Empire Health Services.

    Enjoy it! Once the travel bug bites you may never look back - been moving around for 6 1/2 yrs. now and couldn't see going back to staff nursing.
    What part of Colorado are you going to?

    I am headed to Fort Carson, CO. In Colorado Springs.

    Should be quite a change. A mostly young and healthy population. No more restraining belligerent drunks on a regular basis so you can sew them back up. No more "well, i had to bring the other one in, so you might as well check this one too (referring to the bug-bags she has bred).

    And do I dare say it???........no more medicaide pt's using the ER as their personal after hours clinic.

    Oh yea, I am looking forward to this little trip.
