I'm starting to apply for nursing positions (will be graduating with my ADN in May) and was wondering if there are any hospitals you know of for sure that are only hiring BSN RNs? Since the application process is rather lengthy for many of these hospitals, I'd rather not waste my time if they aren't going to hire me anyway. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! If you all know of anywhere that definitely hires ADNs or new grads that'd be a big help as well! Thanks!

Rush will consider your application for some positions if you are enrolled in a RN-BSN program. They state that on their website; I think in the FAQ section.
*BTW* I recently became aware that there is no requirement for staff nurses to have BSNs to obtain or retain Magnet status, however they do have requirements for managers to hold a bachelors and executive leadership to have MSNs. (Their requirements are listed on the ANCC website.) I was quite surprised by this as many cite the desire for BSN prepared RNs being related to Magnet status.
