    Calling is hard to say. Some have the human resources off campus.

    Do u have any experience with any electronic charting? Use the name of the charting you use and see if any companies need help with this in chi town. Don't get discouraged, Hr works very slow so it might be a while before u hear back. It took a company30 days to call me in December.

    Some of the major magnet hospitals in Chicago are Rush, NMH, University of Chicago, Children's Memorial, RIC, and Advocate Illinois Masonic. There are a few more though. The hospitals in Chicago are looking for experience, certifications, BSN, leadership, and community service. Make sure to highlight these areas in your resume.

    Transferring your license is a pain, but easy enough. You will need to go to this website:
    http://www.idfpr.com/dpr/who/nurs.asp

    Click on the appropriate "written application" link for your licensure. Then, choose the "endorsement" application. Print and follow the steps for the endorsement requirements. Make sure to send everything in a neat package, otherwise receiving your license may be delayed.

    Hope that helps
    Thank you for your help. I do have a BSN and eight years of nursing experience. I also have leadership experience. I would like to work at University of Chicago in the research department. If you have any tips I would really appreciate it.

    A few suggestions:
    Check the web for Advocate Healthcare, Provena, Adventist, Edwards, in addition to whats above (some are in the burbs)

    For LTC, try Manor Care

    Lots of Chicago area listings on Monster.com


    Chicago-Land is huge. Any specific areas you are focusing on?

    Thank you for your help. I would like to work close to downtown Chicago. I am interested in working in a hospital as a CM, UR or Research nurse. Is it hard to get a job in the hospital setting. I am interested in University of Chicago. I would really appreciate any advice.
