    I took me a while to find a job as a new RN. After doing a lot of searching I finally found one. I hope things turn around there is only so long that new grads cant be hired until older nurses retire or find new jobs. Good luck!

    I am a new graduate RN with a BSN. I was just hired at CHOA. It wasn't hard at all but I do have 7 years experience as a tech. I just applied to a Staff Nurse position that didn't have a specified number of years experience required.

    Were you a tech at CHOA or in peds? Just curious! Congrats on the job!

    I'm here in Atlanta and quite a few of my classmates already have jobs. Many were hired right into the units where they had practicum: 4-5 into Mother/Baby at Northside, 6-8 at Piedmont (Surgical Services, CCU, ICU, Mother/Baby), a couple at Grady, 8-9 at CHOA (Yay! That's where I will be , and some hospitals are just now holding interviews(Emory, Gwinnett Medical) so I'm sure more will be placed soon! I'm sure there are more places but I can't remember them all now...

    This probably wont help you much at this point, but maybe it will help those people still in Nursing school.... The key to employability of a new grad is to work while in nursing school at a local hospital. This is like a 2 year interview...and if you do a good job they a much more likely to hire a candidate from within.

    I couldn't agree more. The best way to land a job as a new grad is to work as a tech/nurse extern/PCT during school, even if it's only during your last semester. That's how I got my job in the ER.

    Hey I have applied at CHOA as well and have 5 years of experience as a PCT. I am so happy to hear that you got a job there. I was wondering if you could inbox me (martha.wachenheim@gmail.com) some kind of information that would help me get my foot in the door. (Manager's email etc.)
    I did my capstone project on a NICU and I have PALS and ACLS! I want to work at that hospital very much. I applied to the new grad job a week ago and I was wondering if you could give me any info on what units are hiring or if there are any spots left for new RNs. I have my GA license.
