I know that the Kindred hospitals hire LVN's. There website is:
I also know that Hugley hospital hires LVN's. I could not find a website for them though.
DFW nursing jobs are a dime a dozen!
I would only use Kindred as a back-up plan if other acute hospitals don't want to hire new grads.
The LTAC's can be the better paying places for LVN's such as Kindred, HealthSouth, LifeCare, Select, etc. so look them up if you really need a job that pays well for LVN's but.......
The patients are heavy, heavy care, spent a long time in the hospital, and will often have psychotic families to go along with them that threaten law suits daily.
In addition, many of your co-workers there will be bottom-of-the-barrel nurses and will not set good examples for a new grad.
Kindred is well known in Dallas for ruining nurse's careers by falsely reporting them to Group One and the BNE, I know 3 nurses personally who've had that happen when I lived there. So, buyer beware.
UT Southwestern, Medical City Dallas, Medical Center of Lewisville, the VA, and Baylor hospitals all hire LVN's.
I'm sure there are more but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Please look into them before turning to the LTAC's for a job.
