Hello all, I have read through this forum several times, but first time writing. I applied at Loyola, Rush, Northwestern, most of the Resurrection hospitals, alexian brothers, advocate to name a few. I have only had one or two positive conversations with the recruiters. Does anyone know the current situation?
I would like to hear from new RNs w/ a license who are just applying for jobs that do not have any tech experience. It would also be nice to hear from nurses who are currently working and know of the hiring situations in their departments.
I have heard the following things to list a few: there is a current hiring freeze, we are hiring internally (but still list the position externally), new grad residency program is no longer offered, we get lots of applications (so no response even in 3+ weeks?), and ofcourse the most popular response that we are looking for more experience.
And for those people on this forum that like to write "please look at other topics regarding this"...please don't write that because its not helpful at all. I am trying to get a current understanding of the job market and not what was posted maybe 2months ago or more.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your responses in advance.
