My understanding is that the state of IL requires an Excelsior ADN grad with a license in another state to have 2 yrs experience before they can endorse in IL. I've heard that Excelsior nursing grads can work at any VA hospital in the country regardless of state laws.
Anyone heard of any relatively new Excelsior ADN grads finding federal nursing jobs in Chicago?
Where should I look for jobs?
Should I consider Gary, IN?
I'm hoping to find a job in an ICU or ER. I've worked in an ICU for 6 months and like it. I also have a paramedic license, ACLS, PALS, and a B.S. degree.
