I am a newly licensed RN (within the last 6 mo) relocating to the KC area. I have been working in an ASC as a circulating nurse but am interested in getting a position in a hospital when I move to the KC area next month. I am wondering which hospital it would be best to apply to as an inexperienced nurse? I have spent some time searching the job posting for several of the hospitals (KU Medical Center, St. Lukes, OPMC) and it seems like they are primarily accepting applications from RN's with a year or more of experience. In Wichita, where we live now, they use nurse recruiters to help fill vacancy's. Is this practiced in the KC area?
My husband and I are hoping to live in the Johnson County area and I would like to avoid a really long commute. I would also be interested in which hospitals offer the best benefits (affordable health insurance, tuition reimbursement, daycare availability)
I am interested in any insight that can be offered!
