Staff Nurse - RN

Non-Profit and Social Services Healthcare

Marklund is built on our mission of making everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities. Our services are designed to enhance the lives of our residents in a meaningful way, but we can’t do it alone.

We are seeking dedicated Staff Nurses with a RN to join our diverse team in Elgin and be a part of our life-changing mission. We have flexible full-time, part-time and PRN shifts available with a starting base rate of up to $36/hr (plus additional differentials of $1 for PMs, $2 for nights and up to $7 for weekends).

Joining Marklund is about being part of something bigger. It’s about belonging to a community that believes in the wholeness of each person, and works together to create happy, safe and purpose-filled lives for those individuals that we serve.

Marklund is a place where you can thrive professionally, and grow in your career. Whether you seek work variety, scheduling consistency or career advancement, you will find your home here. Your journey includes innovative benefits, flexible opportunities, competitive pay rates for nurses with experience, and extensive training to help new graduates launch your nursing career.

According to one of our nurses, Cass, Marklund stands about from other facilities:

“The reason I became a nurse was to help, nurture, and show love to other fellow beings who were in need, and I am able to live that dream at Marklund.

What sets Marklund apart for me is the homelike setting as well as the client-staff ratio.  I feel as though I’m providing care for someone in their home which inspires me to keep care more personal. It’s a very warm and inviting atmosphere, which makes me feel as if I’m going to my home away from home.  Also because of the working ratios the quality of care provided is much higher, which is something you can feel proud of.

 If you want to enrich the lives of others by something as small as a smile or gentle touch, Marklund is the place for you.  If you like going home feeling that you received as much or more than you gave, Marklund is the place for you. If you like knowing you may be the one constant in someone’s life, Marklund is the place for you.”
