I am a recent graduate and looking for jobs. I would really like to start in a hospital, but am keeping my options open for long-term care, rehab facilites, and home care. Just wanted to see from other LPNs/RNs what companies you would recommend or not recommend looking into. I live in the Indianapolis area, so responses for facilities around this area are appreciated. Thank you!

I was an aide at University Heights Health and Living Community, a long term care facility, for 2 years. It was the only place I worked while I lived in Indy, but I haven't been there in 3 years now. I hope that you find a place that makes you feel appreciated. I did when I was there, and I miss it. Good luck.

The state of Indiana has a government website that actually presents the information of the annual state audits through the Indiana Board of Health of each facility. You can also go to job boards of different facilities, and if the facility has a job opening for an extended length of time...Don't go there. In other words, if the place is hiring for a number of positions, it is not a place you will be happy with. The good facilities have excellent nurse and other nursing staff retention rates.
