    If you apply to more than one position then don't accept until you have completed all interviews, I was lucky, applied to the only open position available in what I wanted at the time and got it. Insurance is dated the first day of your orientation and you can enroll within a few days of starting orientation. New grad orientation will depend on the unit, anywhere from 3-6 months, not sure how transferring and such goes, I don't plan on transferring out anytime soon Insurance is at an awesome price compared to what I was paying in FL. Good Luck, they had quite a hiring push recently because the new hospital opens in the morning!

    Does anyone know whether they hire ADN grads or do they only hire BSN's?

    Im from MI but left in 2010 to complete an ADN program in Cincinnati, OH. I will be finishing up with the program in June and my family really wants me to come back home. But if theres not a chance of me even being considered for a position then Im just going to move to TX.

    Any thoughts?

    From what I hear it varies from unit to unit, some managers won't give a new grad ADN a second glance, others will, I'm an ADN with close to 4 yrs, my co worker that started the same day as me is an ADN with <2yrs and none of it ED, we were both hired into the Ped ED, best thing to do is try, I know there are several openings listed now so try applying and see what happens. Good Luck
