On another thread I was asked to post information here about places that I am personnally aware of that say, at least, that they are actively hiring nurses. It is not my intent to advertise for, nor to imply any connection with, these organizations. Rather I am simply supplying some information that I have uncovered that might be helpful to nurses out there who are looking for jobs.
Below I will list the agency/organization and then the website for that organization.
State of Georgia -- careers.ga.gov (currently recruiting for nurses, NPs, and other health related occupations)
Hutcheson Medical Center in Fort Oglethorpe, GA -- www.hutcheson.org
(I have been told that even if the position states experience is prefered they will consider new grads.)
Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga, TN -- www.erlanger.org
(They have recently announced that due to a settlement reached with the former CEO they will be holding on recruitment for non-clinical positions, but they say that they will still continue to actively hire clinical and nursing staff.)
Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, TN -- www.memorial.org
Floyd Medical Center in Rome, GA -- www.floyd.org
Redmond Regional Medical Center in Rome, GA -- www.redmondregional.com
Gordon Hospital in Calhoun, GA -- www.gordonhospital.com
There may be others in these areas that are hiring, but these are all places that have stated they are actively hiring nurses when I have inquired with them. Like I say above I have no connections with any of these places other than contacting them while trying to research the nursing job market in this area. I cannot guarantee, of course, that they will hire, but it would be worth checking in to in my opinion if you are looking for employment.
I do not know much about this, but I have heard that the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps recruits for nurses. It might be worth checking with them at www.usphs.gov
to find out more if you are interested.
I sincerely hope this post can help someone in their search for a job.
