I am graduating from a BSN accelerated program in Green Bay and am looking to move preferrably to Madison. I am open to moving to Milwaukee or even central Wisconsin. It doesn't look like there are many jobs open right now. Does anyone know who is hiring and possibly what the starting pay is?

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
! 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!
Not 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.
Wheaton is also a very good system. If there are openings in Racine, that could be worth checking into.
Best wishes with your search.
