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!
