    That has changed. When I started there in 2010 (back when they were just UCH) they required all new nurses in their new grad program to have their BSN.
    The UCH new grad program does take new grads with their ADN. I'm in the program right now and there are 9 new grads from Pikes Peak Community College (ADN).

    Oh neat! and did you or any of the other ADN's have prior healthcare experience? How is the application/interview process? Every forum I've read seems to say it is super hard to get into, like you have to know somebody, but I feel like you and fellow ADNs have something that makes you stand out from the BSN students.

    Hey dbsum, I have a BSN, but like you said theres a lot of competition for jobs so I got a job as a CNA to get my foot in the door. The interview process was pretty intimidating, 6-8 managers and educators interview candidates one at a time for about 30-40min.
