  1. 0 Hi all, I have a BA in Criminology/Philosophy and just graduated with my ADN. I live in Massachusetts and I have not sat for the boards yet. I am very interested in a job at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester.....Do you think I have any hope? Thanks so much in advance!!!!

    Hi,

    The Mayo Clinic consists of Methodist and St. Marys hospitals. They both are Magnet designated institutions. Magnet hospitals selectively hire BSN and MSN prepared RNs.

    Best wishes in your future,

    Actually, they do. They just won't get hired in an ICU.

    Weird, I recall reading on their website that they don't hire ADN's at all. That was almost 2 years ago, however.

    They say you will get hired as an ADN if you agree to your BSN in 6 years. Don't know if they hold you to it at all, but I have met plenty of people with ADN's at Mayo.

    djuan is correct. You can get hired into a pcu or floor unit as a ADN. You can even move to an ICU after a year on the floor. But, you must earn your BSN within 6 years after getting hired or you will become a PCA. We had someone on our unit that was threatened with losing her RN job if she didn't get her BSN.

    I used to live in Rochester,MN

    So yes they do hire nurses with ADN degree but you have to get your BSN within six years

    I worked as a nurse recruiter for Mayo Rochester for over two years and continue to work as a staff nurse. Here's the scoop: The applicant pool of BSN/BAN qualified grads is huge, so preferentially these grads/applicants are selected for interview. There are also two local community colleges that have had a relationship with Mayo for decades, and are generally the only ADN grads that are hired. Should you get your BSN/BAN online, you would jump up into the preferred category, but competition is still pretty stiff, though I would certainly encourage you to apply. And, it never hurts to know someone on the inside....
