Hi all! I am a BSN prepared nurse with 3+ years experience (one year ortho, two years gen med/surg). I currently live and work in Minnesota at a very well known medical center. I am interested in moving back to Chicago (originally from suburbs), and was hoping to get some information on the job market in the city. I have read a few threads that state it takes months to find a job....does this still apply when a few years of experience is involved? I am hoping to begin applying in August and would be hoping to find a job and move before winter - is this realistic? Would it increase my chances of being hired if I moved back to IL first then began searching? I do have several months of living expenses saved. Finally (sorry for all the questions) how much can I expect to make hourly in the city? Currently I make low 30s/hour and work a 0.8 FTE...so to make about the same amount of money I think I would need to make at least $28ish hourly and work a 0.9. Thanks for reading and I appreciate any insight!
