The field of nursing today offers a wide variety of specialties and work environments that are attractive to RNs with differing talents, interests, and career objectives. Whether it'’'s working with patients in the acute hospital setting, in an outpatient clinical environment, or in the transition to wellness in the community, there are many options for practicing nurses from which to choose.
As the leading healthcare provider in the region, FHN serves over 1,500 people every day in five counties. Our 19 locations, including FHN Memorial Hospital, the Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center at FHN Memorial Hospital, and 13 family healthcare centers, provide a wealth of options for nurses to pursue numerous specialties in a variety of settings.
"When I speak with nursing students about careers at FHN, I always reinforce to them that there are so many avenues of nursing they can explore," says FHN Talent Acquisition Specialist Carol Boeke, BSH, RN "If nursing is their passion, they are able to grow and flex their careers to where their interests reside."
For nurses interested in practicing in an outpatient setting, our 13 family healthcare centers offering primary and specialty care provide a variety of challenging and rewarding positions.
Those interested in serving patients from a more holistic approach may be interested in pursuing a career as a case manager or Complex Care nurse, working with patients dealing with multiple chronic illnesses who could benefit from the support available through a wide variety of community services.
RNs with 2 or more years of experience can benefit from FHN’s flexible employment programs that maximize work/life balance – some of the first of their type in northern Illinois.
