I got a job the week I graduated I did not want to wait to work. I did an ADN program as well and it looks like several states are freezing the hiring process of adn nurses. I lived in TX where they were not fond of hiring adn's so I moved back to my homestate La where I had no trouble whatsoever landing a position. I am also going back in august to get my BSN, I want to get everything out the way so I can relax!

Right now, I have a gap of 3 weeks til I get to start my first RN job.
My piece of advice is to start looking for a job in the health field (PCA/TECH/CNA) and start looking at graduate nurse positions because it was hard to find my job. I was hired from a group of over 20 interviews for that unit (there were over 400 GN in the large interview).
