Atlanta Nursing Jobs

If you're considering a career change, or wondering what type of career you should get into, Atlanta nursing jobs and healthcare jobs in general have a lot to offer.

The Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta area's education and health services industry employed 267,300 workers during September, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is up from 266,500 workers during August and a 2.4 percent increase from last year.

There are several employers throughout Atlanta that offer great healthcare jobs with good benefits. One institution in particular recently received some recognition.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta was ranked 67th on Fortune's 2009 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. This is a slight decline from the organization's previous ranking of 45th among the top 100 companies throughout the country.

During 2007, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta brought in $1.4 million in revenue. Part of the reason the organization was named to the list this year was its effort to tackle the nursing shortage with the 100 Nurses in 100 Days Campaign.

Not only did the organization do its part to recruit new workers, but it also made the process fun for current works. Through the 100 Nurses in 100 Days Campagin, prizes that employees received for making referrals included 100 tanks of gas, 100 hours of babysitting and a 100-mile getaway to a Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta currently has about 5,850 employees and was able to create 344 jobs during a one-year period, accounting for a job growth rate of 8 percent. The organization receives about 30,881 applications, but only had 135 job openings at the beginning of this year. The voluntary turnover rate is about 8 percent.

The most common salaried job with the company is business operations coordinator, which pays about $45,065 per year. The most common hourly job is staff nurse, which pays about $61,399 per year.

Some of the organization's employee benefits include onsite child care, subsidized gym membership, job sharing program, compressed workweek and telecommuting options. In addition, salaried employees receive about 19 hours of training per year, while hourly employees receive about 23 hours of training per year.
