That's very interesting blueblaze. I noticed that Rush and Loyola and Children's Memorial all hire NPs. Did your wife try those places? What kind of NP is she? Would you recommend me working at a hospital that hires NPs so that they can help me with my tuition reimbursement and help me find a job? I am trying to determine the best route to go.
I actually work with a pediatric NP and she got her job through a clinical connection. Her training was at Rush. Blueblaze is it ok if I PM you about this?
I used to work at a hospital in Arlington Heights IL that hired NP's/PA's for ER and also some practices did likewise, to do rounds and things. I think the docs are mighty scared of these new providers because they are competing with the primary care docs for billing, even though it isn't supposed to be that way.
Residents are cheaper, and are "doctors", so lots of hospitals with residency programs will not hire NP's/PA's. Too expensive. So trying to find a job connected with some of the smaller teaching hospitals might not be the best idea. Loyola and northwestern are the exceptions, but those hospitals are so busy that they keep everyone busy. JMO.
There is also some companies that contract with hospitals to provide providers. You can check into some of those.
