    Hi sj, so I received a call yesterday and was offered the job! Yeah the interview wasn't too bad, and I got a really good feel for the hospital. Everyone seemed really nice. The position is an RN position on the med-surg/womens/peds floor. I can't wait to start, new graduate RN positions are really tough to come by in Chicago right now, so I'm just excited to jump in and start working.

    Hi! Yes I am a new grad, the market is so tough in Chicago for NG's, so that was really smart of you to find work while in school. Hopefully you can transition to an RN position after graduation on your unit. I graduated from a school in Texas with my BSN. So yeah I'm really excited to start! My start date in July 11. What did you wear to orientation? Also wondering if I need to dress up at all tomorrow when I go to sign papers...

    to sign papers...i wore casual but not too're gonna be there (or at least i was) for 4 hrs...but it might be different for you at this time. when i was hired, about 10 CNAs were there to do the physical and everything. when u get to HR for your papers, u will get the biggest stack lol. umm for orientation, we were there from 8 to 4 for general. Nursing orientation was 2 more days from 8 to 4. but u will get all that tomorrow.

    you will be working on 4 east...i work on the other side on 4 west

    & if you don't mind...would you be able to let me know the starting pay there for new grads with no experience?
    Congrats again! you'll love it...almost everyone speaks & you'll make friends quick

    I should probably PM this but I can't figure out how lol...but starting pay is $26 and $29 for nights. That is the same as Loyola, I had an interview there. So they pay pretty well! I took care of everything yesterday and it was pretty much as you said. Just looking forward to July now.

    Good morning, I would ask if you can recommend some sites where you can apply for a CNA job, I got my license two months ago but before he had worked in the care of older people with health problems.

    I am in Florida.

    Thank you very much for your information and help.

    I applied for several jobs but have not received any response from these companies so I'm worried and not others to develop strategies to successfully find a job soon appreciate your help.
