RN Recruiter Info, Colorado Springs?
- 0Jun 21, '09 by Pixie.RN, BSN, RN, EMT-P Senior ModeratorDoes anyone have contact information for a Memorial Hospital (Colorado Springs) nurse recruiter? The husband and I are planning a move to Colorado Springs about a year from now, and I'm starting to do a little legwork to get in touch with nursing recruiters. Also, if anyone has any info about Memorial vs. Penrose, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

I just moved to Colo. Spgs. in April. I have applied to probably 15 RN positions at Memorial over the last 2 1/2 months. I even applied for PRN positions there just to get my foot in the door. So far I have had one telephone interview and was turned down since I have a full time position at Penrose and would not be "available" when they would need me. Other than that I received automated rejections. I have been a ICU nurse at Level 1 Trauma centers for 9 years, so I am definitely not lacking experience. If you are interested in giving Memorial a try, go to their website--memorialhealthsystem.com The recruiter phone #s and e-mail addresses are listed there under employment.
Personally I think you will be more likely to land a position with centura.org which is the Penrose system.
At the present time it is very hard to find nursing jobs in the Colorado Springs area.
Good luck to you!

I did hear back from a Memorial recruiter, and I'm going to be meeting with her while I'm out there on vacation in October, but I never did hear from the Penrose recruiter. I'll have to try her again as the time gets closer.
Good luck to you!! Hope you find something soon.
