    I didn't have any prior experience, but I had connections. It all took quite awhile, I don't remember exactly how long.

    When you say connections do you mean employee referral?

    I worked there many years and also at many of the hospitals in Chicagoland area. The pay and benefits are competitive and they treated me better then any Union Hospital in Chicago.

    It is a good place to work if you can get in.

    Hi Juliwithoutane!

    I just got a call yesterday and they invited me to the "group interview" at Lurie's for the SNA program. Any advice or tips on how to stand out during the interview?

    Yes I know a few people that work there. I think that's the only reason I got a job. But there were a few hired that didn't have any connections!

    I just got a call yesterday that I was hired for an SNA position! So excited! I was wondering, after graduation and completion of the NCLEX, do you try to get into the RN internship, or can they hire you on as an RN without the internship? Also, being an SNA, is it pretty easy to get the internship compared to outside applicants?

    Any new grad nurse hired at Lurie is hired though the internship program. When it comes time to look for a position you'll see them separated as rn-experienced and rn-new grad. All new grads are considered interns for either 6 months or a year-I think it's a year. They attend extra classes and have an extended orientation period. It's a very successful system. Welcome to Lurie! Where will you be working?
