    Try St. Joe's Ann Arbor- I know they will sometimes hire new grads, i think mostly in med/surg type units. I know a friend who is a new grad and got hired at U of M as well. There are plenty of hospitals in that area, be persistent, drop your resume off in person if possible! Good luck

    Try the Ann Arbor Dept. of Veterans Affairs at their VA hospital; you can check on jobs via www.usajobs.gov I have worked for them 27 years.

    you have gotten some good advice...there ARE good nursing jobs in the AA/SE Michigan area...they don't just chase people down the street so you have to go after them

    There is a home care company that I would not recommend, and a hospice which is toxic...other than that I know nurses working happily in many of the health systems of the area (including myself)

    Thank you all for the words of advice. I know I've kind of taken over this thread, but I did have a couple of questions for you all.

    I've been applying for positions for months now as an un-licensed, graduate nurse with very little feedback. I finally have my test date, AUGUST 2nd!!! Wish me luck. Anyway, I am not from the area either. I am heading to Ann Arbor tomorrow for some huge craft fair thing. I like to put a picture with all these hospitals. So I should drive-by St Joes, UofM, and the VA? Are there any others I should be aware of? I've used google.

    I live in the Troy area, and apply for several positions on a weekly basis. I should start to get some more feedback when I have my license, right?! Cross my fingers that I pass ! I've been studying for a while now!

    When you apply at Lakeland, make sure to check for Nurse Tech positions. Many times Lakeland will hire candidates that are soon to be nurses and hire them as a "Nurse Tech" until they have passed their boards.

    Those are the 3 big employers in the Ann Arbor area. You are going to the Art Fair...it is juried and quite nice. Traffic and parking will be challenging...but you should enjoy yourself.

    Are you looking also at the Oakwood health system? DMC. Henry Ford, Beaumont are other hospitals in the area. I understand that Seasons Hospice is in a "power surge" right now and is hiring and expanding in SE Michigan.

    Oakwood actually spoke with me over the phone. (Only Detroit Metro Hospital to do so). They told me to contact them when I have my license. I apply to multiple positions at DMC on a weekly basis. HF hasn't had much lately for new nurses, and I've tried applying at Beaumont for their internship positions but no luck.

    I am from out-of-state, so I do not if they are looking at the application and am at a disadvantage because of it. I'm truly hoping and preying that once I have my Michigan RN license some of the area hospitals will take my application seriously. I really want to stay in MI, but I may have to go back to where I went to school.

    Thank you for the heads up! I'm looking forward to the art fair tomorrow to take my mind off all this stuff for a little bit.

    I haven't heard of Seasons Hospice. I'm going to look it up in a little while.

    Thanks again!

    Anyone have any comments on Cana Care?

    I'm not sure how they got my contact information, but I received a phone call from them today. Please private message me or reply here.

    likely for profit...home care or hospice or both.

    You are correct that you are not at the top of any hospitals list without a current and active MI license. Good luck.
