    Thanks very much for the helpful list. Looking for work is such a time consuming task; I would much rather be putting that time into studying for the NCLEX.

    Awesome thread! I have been spending hours on the net trying to find this kind of information. Alot of the residency programs I have found seem to be only for bsn's. I am hoping to find a NICU position and am willing to re-locate, although I would prefer to stay in the southern ky, northern tenn area.

    What exactly is a nursing residency program? Are the programs a way to gain experience in the nursing field as a new graduate? Also, does any one know of any nursing residency programs in Minnesota? And last question (sorry), when do you apply for them? Thanks!

    do i call myself a new grad anymore? i graduated in december 2010, which feels ages ago! i found a doctor who would train me in medical aesthetics... can you believe it? well, my pay is terrrible and i cannot wait to get into the hospital! after building my resume with some quality "add-ons", i hope to be more attractive to the winter 2011/2012 employers. i had a spreadsheet with the various new grad programs (and of course a call log) but was so frustrated in my search / website visiting that i decided to make one myself. [color=#417394]hopefully, one stop place for new grad rn program news will be helpful!

    There are actually many more, these are part of a consortium. Massachusetts had 10 at one time though none are on this list. Many are not active this year due to the economy (2011). Good luck to all the job hunters!

    I am not a new gradbut a Registered Nurse who has over 26 years experience, 6 years experience as a LVN, and 10 years as a NA. I took 4 years off to deal with my mothers illness and my sisters depression after the death of our mother. I would like to get back into Nursing and am willing to take a residency in any departments but ER ( I worked in the ER for over 20 years). I have started a BSN program and have one or two classes to finsih the program. I would like to conect with some Hospitals that would be interested in my skills and knowledge of nursing and the billing and coding of patients records.
    And no 8-10 minths is not too long for a residency Program, Nursing schools do not education new nurses as well as they used to and you will need all the time you get to learn how to be a good nurse.

    As I understand it, only new nurses with BSNs with none or less than a certain amount of work time in a clinical setting can be part of a residency. That is how it was explained to me in our program. I forgot the exact requirements but it was something like that. I also remember them saying that anyone who graduated more than a year ago from a BSN can't participate in a residency either (even if they have not worked at all during that time, dumb I know - they should consider revising that in our day and age). Our residency program subscribes to the University HealthSystem Consortium, which sets the rules.

    Ive done some research and have contact many programs and a lot of the residency programs prefer you have a BSN but it is not REQUIRED. They say whom ever has the best credentials as far as GPA, letters of recs and ect. are the best canidates. But there are programs that do restrict only BSN. But in general you do not need a BSN to get into a residency program.

    Just want to make that clear so ADN students are not dicouraged from applying to residency programs.

    There are a lot of different residency programs out there with a lot of different requirements.
