Residencies that accept ADN in Georgia

  1. 0
    Does anyone know if Emory or anyone else for that matter accepts new graduates with associate degrees? I've also checked into Piedmont, Regional, DeKalb Medical & CitySide Healthcare. I really want to get into a residency versus getting hired straight on, but I don't know what the odds are if I get an ADN. Someone please give me any information or advice you may have. I'm also wondering would it be easy to just get a regular job as an RN or will it be extremely hard here in Georgia. All comments appreciated!

    prettymica That is exactly what I'm talking about. I have been planning ahead so I was looking at the requirements for most places and they "prefer" or require BSN. Congrats for finishing school! With my own research I found a couple places that will accept ADN, I don't know if you'd be willing to move or anything. Here is what I found:

    1. Peachford Peachford Hospital - they say new grads are encouraged to apply & requirements for RN position is ADN
    2. Phobe Putney SW Georgia Family Medicine Residency - there is a link on the bottom right that says "how to apply" just click that
    3. DeKalb Medical Explore Available Nurse Residencies at DeKalb Medical | DeKalb Medical - must graduate an accredited school and sign 24 month contract.
    4. Piedmont Hospital Piedmont Healthcare | Nurses Residency Program - they say BSN preferred but there are people on here that got hired on with ADN.
    5. Gwinnett Medical Center Nurse Residency Program | Careers at Gwinnett Medical Center - they also accept ADN.

    I really hope this helps! I'm hoping some other people with an ADN actually respond to give us some insight!

    Emory hospital doesn't accept ADN, not for the hospital. Loophole is this-Get hired at their LTAC facility. After 6 months, you are eligible for internal transfer within the Emory group, and BSN requirement does not apply for internal transfer. Good luck!

    Piedmont definitely takes ADN. I have an ASN which is the same thing and I got hired on.

    Dekalb definitely takes ADNs in the residency program. There were a handful of GPC folks. Another cycle of the residency program is coming up in July I believe.

    Are they a good place to work? They are actually one of the places I wouldn't mind going.
