The nice thing about being a nurse in Chicago is that there are dozens of high-quality hospitals and nursing facilities that always have open nursing jobs.
That means getting a full-time job can be straightforward, and picking up extra shifts just requires finding the right nursing agency.
Nursing and healthcare staffing options
A review of Chicago nursing agencies reveals a few that stand out. Agencies with a long history, Joint Commission Certification, and multiple listings garner the best ratings overall.
At the top of the list, MedStaff Alternatives has established a reputation as one of the best nurse agencies in Chicago, providing excellent benefits, wages and shift options throughout the entire Chicagoland area. Importantly, they have many Chicago nursing jobs in almost every suburb and throughout the city. This means you can find full-time nursing jobs, short-term nursing contracts or extra shifts at convenient locations.
Joint Commission Certification for staffing
MedStaff Alternatives is certified by the Joint Commission’s Healthcare Staffing Services Certification Program (last reviewed August, 2010), and has been awarded the Gold Seal for Quality since 2005.
This is a major achievement and shows its commitment to the nurses who work with them. The Gold Seal for Quality makes a big difference because certification means an employer has been fully vetted. Certification also opens up a lot more nursing job options, because the best hospitals only work with certified nursing agencies, opening up a lot more options for you.
