Hi all. I'm a nursing student in NM, but am wanting to return to AZ after I graduate. Are there any ADN New Grad Programs? I will be going straight into my BSN upon finishing up my ADN and passing the NCLEX, so not sure if that makes a difference, or not. Trying to weigh all of my options well in advance. Thanks!

Are you talking about a residency? If so, I believe Mayo Clinic is the only system in AZ that has a set program. Nearly every hospital in the valley will hire new grad ADNs though, and you will go through preceptorship, but it is not a set program.

Dignity and Banner both also have extensive new grad programs/residencies. HonorHealth has a kind of new grad program where the classes are "optional." Dignity and mayo take ADN. Banner prefers BSN. HonorHealth requires BSN or BSN in progress with a heavy preference for a completed BSN. You have some options out there.
