Hello all,

I'm currently job searching on the MO side of KC and I would like to know if yall could give me some reviews of the hospitals please! I recently applied to St Lukes.. how long does it take to hear back for yes or no usually? What other hospitals would you advise applying to? I would love to work in the NICU or special care nursery ideally, but also L&D would be an option. Obviously I'm not completely limiting myself, just those would be ideal, but ER, surgery, etc would be ok if I'm not having luck.

Thanks!

Have you heard back from them? I am in a similar situation as you are. I have applied to numerous hospitals in the MO side and heard back from very few. FYI: I recently moved here from STL and have 3.5 years of experience. I dont understand the deal here.

No I haven't heard back. I am a new grad though. But I can't find any recent posts on KC hospitals or jobs either. For all the people here the forum seems like a ghost town!

yea this is a dead forum...good luck in your search..I saw that Truman had a new grad position. They seem to be very selective though in their process. What about centerpointe?

I'm a new grad and I'm actually interviewing for a position at St. Lukes this week. It took about 3 days after applying to get the call. I don't remember seeing any openings for NICU or L&D, but I do know that Liberty Hospital hires new grads and I do remember seeing an obstetrics opening. I know that you said that you wanted to stay on the MO side, but KU also has a Clinical nurse entry opening in the NICU last time I checked (last week).

Hi Wetzoo,

What was your interview with St. Lukes like? I will be graduating in May from an ADN program and hope to work there. Do you have your BSN? Everytime I have applied for any position with that hospital I never get a call back. Hoping when I apply for RN job it will be different. Any insight will be helpful! :D

Let us know how it went!

I think new grad positions are harder to come by. When I worked at Saint Lukes East Lee's Summit, I was called for an interview within days (but I wasn't applying as a new grad). A lot of times with those specialty units, you need to get your foot in the door at the hospital first, then transfer to your preferred unit when something opens.

Okay, this is a little scary to me. I am starting the CNA program through MCCKC in about 2 weeks. When I talk to people in the medical profession, (my doctor and a few nurses I know), and tell them that I am planning to enter the nursing program, they all say, "You will be able to get a job anywhere." Really? I'm starting to think if new grads have a difficult time getting hired...why? I am paying for my classes as I go so that I won't have any debt when I graduate, hopefully I can keep that up....but I better be able to get a job when I graduate or my husband will put me up for adoption :)

Kansas City is a very competitive market. Most of the hospitals already have nursing schools such as Truman/Umkc, st.lukes/ st.lukes school of nursing, Research Medical Center/Research nursing college, KU med/ku school of nursing. I would recommend trying HCA facilities. Center point is one that hires new grads and home health almost always needs nurses.

I work for Saint Lukes and it can take months to hear back from them. I would recommend calling HR and just following up, it also helps knowing someone who works there :)

Hello all,

I applied to the Saint Luke's School of Nursing for the Fall 2017 term and i'm waiting to hear responses. I'm a bit skeptical because my GPA is a 3.3-3.4 however, I studied abroad, and I have some wonderful recommendation letters! And advice? I know some previous students got in with a 3.2 and other didn't get in with a 3.6. Getting into this school is a DREAM of mine!

Thank you all!
