    Don't forget, even if you are a new-grad BSN, you somehow miraculously have to have 1-2 years NURSING (not nursing assistant, patient care tech, etc) experience already!
    Not if you apply for one of those awesome "new grad" positions that I have seen tons of-for BSN's, 8-12 weeks training depending on the hospital then bid into your new position. Pretty sweet deal.

    I have seen hardly any new grad positions for anyone, ADN or BSN. What facilities have you seen them for?

    (I have seen: Emerson hosp, NE Baptist - over a month ago; and good Samaritan keeps posting one)

    I have seen no ASN ones.
    Good Samaritan does it ever 8 weeks I believe, Tobey does it, St Luke's does it-St. Luke's even has new grad ed program-I am unsure how long the SC programs are or how often they run but I have seen them post 4 programs since I graduated. There were some in the boston area but that is too far for me so I didn't read up on them, but there were a few there. Wish they took ASN's! Oh and few of the skilled facilities do it to Kindred and Brandon woods both had postings.

    I for one, don't think their research took into consideration the increase of RN's that colleges/universities are spitting out yearly. It far exceeds the vacancy % which is why there are so many RN's out of work.

    I have had no job since my graduation(1.3 years now). If there was a shortage I would have landed a job right after my graduation. I have made over 50 applications even to the surburbans in MA.
