Hi, I am a recent graduate of a nursing program at the University of Iowa. I recently moved to Chicago have been applying to nursing jobs since October!! I have had only a few bites and I was wonderding if anyone had any advice as to the best way to get a nursing job in Chicago. I've looked and applied at most of the major hospitals here (UIC, Northwestern, Rush, Resurrection, etc) and for one reason or another I can't seem to get a job!! I thought nurses were in such high demand?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm right there with you on the job search. I've been looking since October and I have had one interview. I interviewed very early apparently, before the Dec. grads, so they won't be getting back to me until probably next week. It seems as though they only want experienced nurses at the hospitals I've applied to. I thought I would get more feedback after my endorsement for IL went through, but now I'm a registered nurse in the state of IL and I still can't get a response.
I've gotten a job here in my home state until something happens.
