Chicagoland nurses: Which are the best hospitals to work?

U.S.A. Illinois


So I've passed my CNA boards, and I'm currently trying to get into a hospital for work. I live in Chicago, but I must admit that I'm not all that familar with the Chicago hospitals..

In your opinion, which hospitals would you steer clear of, and which would you think would be a good idea to apply to?

I'm not sure if this will affect your responses at all, but I *do* plan on getting into nursing school and if everything worked out, continue a job working as a nurse in the same facility.

I believe academic settings will teach you more. Shoot for Loyola, UIC, or University of Illinois at Chicago. You will learn so much from skilled nurses and residents..

northwestern prentice women's hospital is one of the best in the country

Specializes in Neuroscience/Neuro-surgery/Med-Surgical/.

Steer clear of John Stroger(cook county hospital), Mercy and Bernard's Hospitals....bad news and bad neighborhoods.....

Northwestern Memorial, and Advocate Masonic are pretty good.
