i have relocated back to illinois after living in minnesota for ten years. i have been a nurse since august 2003. my first job was in minnesota and it was new grads dream job. everyone was very nice and helpful and i learned alot. it was a med/surg/oncology unit. i have been back since january 2005. i first worked homecare with ingalls for 6 months but wanted to go back to acute care because the homecare job was never ending and i was at home charting on my patients for at least 3 hours of my night, i have two samll boys 10 and 5 years both with adhd, and the work load was coming home and unfair to my kids. i am now working at a community hospital, ( i don't wish to share the name because i am not real happy there). any way i am having a hard time finding a hospital that i feel comfortable at and any suggestions would be appreciated. my aunt said she thinks i would be happy at northwestern hospital.
god is always by my side what ever my decisions maybe!
everything happens for a reason>

Hii! I'm a nurse hopeful but I will give a couple of names:
Uniniversity of Chicago Hospital
Stroger Hospital (Cook County)
I just came off the top of my head with these, I hope they help. There are plenty to choose from.

Are you close to the City of Chicago, or in the Suburbs? Had you considered working at Ingals HOSPITAL, instead of the Home Care division?
