Jobs in the Indianapolis area?

  1. Hi,

    I've heard it's almost impossible for a new RN to get a job in the Indianapolis area right now? Is this true? Should I start packing?

    Very tight market in the hospitals not sure about the LTC facilities. Jobs to be had but lots of applicants. I have worked almost a yr. different climate then though.

    I used to work at Methodist on 2N/3N and they were always hiring. I would def recommend there, or any other unit at Methodist. It's a great hospital.

    IU Health is hiring to capacity right now, especially at Methodist. We have had high census lately and they are bringing in new grads like crazy. Check out the website.

    Hello! Just to let you know, most of us grads from 6/2010 work in nursing fact all but two of us are in nursing homes. (I got a job in a doctors office) Most hospital jobs are requiring a BSN (I have ASN) or two years experience. I've just been applying everywhere and keeping my fingers crossed!

    I work at St. Francis in Beech Grove (Indianapolis) and there have been many new grads (ASN and BSN) hired on my unit. They are working toward Magnet status, so your nursing program must be accredted by the National League of Nursing.

    I, personally would stay away from Methodist (IU). I worked there for a short time as a Traveler and it was the most horrible job I have ever had. I worked on A 4 North, and to my understanding, that unit still has a bad reputation.

    Drop me a line if you need to.
