I am a graduate nurse, and will be taking the NCLEX-RN January 20th. I am currently working as a home health nurse making really good money. But the thing is, is there is no insurance.
I am interested in working part time somewhere near Burlington. I have been thinking:
United Hospital system (kenosha/pleasant prairie)
Wheaton Franciscan (racine/franklin)
Mercy (lake geneva area)
Can any employees tell me about the employee benefits/insurance....and starting pay?
I will have to get insurance for my 2 toddler children and myself...so family insurance is what I am looking at.
I have heard a lot of negative things about aurora and want to stay away from aurora if this is true (is wheaton franciscan an aurora hospital?)
Any information on these hospitals would be great!
Wheaton Franciscan is a system that includes a number of hospitals and outpatient clinics. It is most definitely not the same as Aurora. In my experience, WF is a good employer overall. Not perfect, but better than most.
I also have heard many negative things about Aurora, a lot of them from Aurora employees. They are known as "the bean counters," because everything is done strictly by the numbers. I have also heard Aurora patients complain about their hospital stays, saying that they felt staffing was inadequate and their care was lacking.
If I had to steer you toward one or the other, I'd recommend WF hands down!
