- Nov 17, '10 by evolvingrnQuote from indreams84Hey, I graduate with my ADN in about a month and was just offered a full-time ICU position at United Hospital System-Kenosha, but I had to compete with THREE other Student Nurse Interns for the same spot ! I am waiting to hear back from Froedert, but if I were you, I would definitely look at either St. Mary's Racine, Aurora in Grafton (though I heard other Aurora hospitals have hiring freezes still), or whatever you can get cuz its pretty tight hiring. Though I do know United Hospital does have positions available in Medoical-Surgical and Cardiac Step-down. Good luck!
- Nov 18, '10 by rn/writerQuote from indreams84Not only do some Aurora hospitals have a hiring freeze, Aurora Summit just laid off a lot of people. That's what Aurora gets for muscling its way into a community where most did not want another hospital. It wasn't needed or desired by a good percentage of the population that was already well-served by two ProHealth Care hospitals. But that didn't stop them. Now they have a brand new state-of-the-art building with a ridiculously low census. I think they vastly underestimated community connection to the ProHealth Care system. A shiny facility doesn't trump loyalty to good docs and a dependable network of care.Hey, I graduate with my ADN in about a month and was just offered a full-time ICU position at United Hospital System-Kenosha, but I had to compete with THREE other Student Nurse Interns for the same spot !

Wheaton is also a very good system. If there are openings in Racine, that could be worth checking into.

- Nov 19, '10 by Sniffum35I just got hired into the ICU at St. Francis in Milwaukee. While I was going through the interview process, I was told that they would have more spots opening up (I think some are already listed). I was told that they will consider new grads if they have had previous health care experience (ie CNA) and did their senior rotation in the type of unit they are applying for.
I had worked as a CNA in a nursing home for 6 months and did my senior clinical rotation in a PICU. Check out their website. The positions listed look like any other listing (experience preferred, etc) but the description will mention that GNs will be considered.
- Nov 19, '10 by calljs15Not sure what kind of experience you need but Fransiscan Skemp, part of the Mayo system out here in La Crosse just today posted for a few RN jobs. New grad RNs usually start at low 20's around here. It's hard getting in anywhere, especially as a new grad, especially if you don't know anyone. Good luck
- Nov 24, '10 by BiffbradfordI quit nursing last spring with the intention of never looking back. I gave away my Cardiology II stethoscope to a student telling her I'll never need it again. Well, 18 months later, after trying this and that for a new profession, getting nowhere fast, and now within the past few months not being able to get hired for ANY job - I'm renewing my license and going back. With 12 years of ICU experience, the hospitals BETTER be hiring!
- Nov 24, '10 by rn/writerExperienced nurses are finding the job market a little tighter than it used to be but nothing like the desert the poor newbies are wandering around in. With your background you should be able to find something reasonable.
Good luck.Last edit by rn/writer on Aug 22, '11
- Dec 13, '10 by rainbow11If you go to United Hospital System (Kenosha, Pleasant Prairie) website under job description is says "Entry level" but most of them are NOT entry level!! I found out that after talking to HR. I wouldn't hope for a new grad position in those hospitals unless you know someone inside, or you did your clinicals there or you worked as a nurse intern. Good luck!
- Dec 28, '10 by indreams84I just got hired into their Kenosha Camus ER as a new grad last week! Im excited, but now I just also got called back for an interview at a St. Jospeh's ICU postion in Milwaukee too....hmmmmm choices.
- Jan 14, '11 by tralalaRNQuote from Badger4lfe262Wouldn't recommend Aspirus. I personally know of 4 experienced nurses who either quit or who are extremely unhappy with the work environment. Probably why they are still hiring new grads. . .Aspirus Wausau Hospital is hiring on new grads still. In my orientation alone there were 6 new grads hired, so try applying with them. The pay is a little lower than Madison though the cost of living is lower. Good luck!
