Aug 11, '12If you graduate in December, there is a Spring cohort I believe that it might be too late to apply for, and a Fall, the webpage for Masonic has more details. Google, Illinois Masonic RN Residency program. Word of warning... they are a magnet hospital, if you do not have you BSN, it's a waste of time. You have to submit a personal letter, one letter of recommendation, resume, cover letter and million other things. It takes time to put together. They told my group during the orientation to the application process they rarely take ADNs. Only if that ADN REALLY stands out. I didn't get in obviously. I didn't kiss any butt in nursing school, did well, but not 4.0 and I was only an ADN. Sorry to sound cynical, just telling my experience. But Good Luck, don't get discouraged and if you never try you'll never get a yes. Congrats on graduating!!
