    I never filled out either application because I started as an extern there. When my extern was ending they just transferred my status over to staff nurse. I am in the residency program there though because from my understanding every new grad goes into the residency, but yea they only hire new grads twice a year I think because there are a lot of classes I go to and the training is expensive for grady so new grads are all bunched together in these classes.

    Has anyone worked in L & D at Grady? I would imagine it would be very busy as well- where time management would be critical. I noticed today that they have some positions in the Family Birth Center- what exactly is this dept?

    Hey, I'm in my final year of my nursing degree in th UK and I really would like to apply for a job at GRADY. Does anyone know how easy (or hard) it is to get a job there as a new graduate or whether its better to get some experience over here before applying. Also does anyone know whether they hire many foreign trained nurses?

    They do take new grads, but only during certain times so they can collaborate the residency program. The hardest thing is getting that interview. You might have to physically go up there and talk to some of the head people to get hired in a reasonable time or else you'll probably be waiting around the phone for weeks , Grady is slow at spending money on any kind of resources nursing staff included. Don't worry about experience but they do get alot of applicants so it really comes down to your interview skills. They take foreign trained as well just make sure you get your license in the state before bothering applying. Apply for residency and extern too . Extern is 3 months of training and then they decide to keep you or not. If I were you I would actually focus more on the Extern position it is in your best interest because it is a steep learning curve working here and the extra training eases you into it. Good luck

    Generally the bigger problem is getting the Visa/ permit to work in the US. While Grady has hired plenty of foreign nurses in the past, only a very limited number are getting through the legal maze these days.

    This post is so helpful... I know someone mention Grady only accepting new grad twice a year, exactly when are those two times?

    Its not exact but it's a little after regular schools graduate so May-June ish and again in dec-Jan ish. they like all new grads to go through 3 month residency program so they bring everyone on at once so they can collaborate the training and classes. call up there or go up and ask to talk to the person in charge of nurse residency or nurse Extern program. I dont want to name people on here but All these head ladies are good and helpful. They'll tell you when to call back or start looking for openings
