New grad (BSN) as of December 2009. Looking to move back to my hometown of Chicago after spending 4 and a half years in Florida for school. I've been searching and searching for jobs in the Chicagoland area but I haven't had much luck. I've really been trying to get hired at Rush or UIC. Does anyone know of any hospitals besides Rush and Advocate that are willing to hire new grads before or even after licensure. BTW I will be taking the NCLEX in February and passing it first go round (claiming it!!). Thanks in advance for any input!
