We're moving to Chicago area for my job, and my wife is an RN w/approx 20 years experience.
Can anyone tell me what the labor market is like for RN's in Chicago?
What are typical nursing salaries like for OR / PACU Nurses with that level of experience.
Any hospitals you'd recommend working for especially in West and North Burbs?

Thanks,

Ken

I'm not sure what the job market for RNs is like but I know that Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights is consistently ranked among the best hospitals in the country and as one of Fortune's Top 100 places to work.

Thanks Chi... what agency does your wife work for? Would you ask if they're looking for OR/PACU nurses any time soon, and pay rates etc.

Thanks,

Ken

You might want to check out Delnor-Community Hospital in Geneva (www.delnor.com) (broken link). Its been designated a "Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence". The hospital is undergoing major expansion, so I'm sure they're looking to add nursing staff.
