    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.

    Given the willingness of most new grad nurses to relocate, it makes sense for there to be a large searchable database of all new grad positions. I'm really surprised there isn't one available. Going through the job listings hospital by hospital is so terribly inefficient and time-consuming. Maybe I need to dust of my programming skills and dive in to that kind of project-that wouldn't be time-consuming at all, no. A wiki-style site where users could add listings and edit them as they expire would be great. The shame of so many job search engines is that they are incomplete. Does anyone know of a really good one beyond Indeed, CareerBuilder, Monster, Snagajob, etc. ? Anything more exclusive to nursing?

    Kabayan, the issue is that you exceeded the usual hiring status of a "new grad" in that you graduated beyond the first year of the graduation year limitation. You should look into a regular nursing job not the new grad or residency positions.

    However, many US hospitals don't always recognize the hospital conditions in the Phil as the same as US experience. There may be other employers that have working environments that's not favorable and harder to fill as some of the locals don't want to work there and you might be willing to do that if the employer feels you'll "fit in" with these conditions (higher patient ratios, less pay, more stress, not so great area, etc.) Good luck!

    I really would love to do a nurse residency program. Not totally sure of a location. But I do have a question... I will be graduating in December with my ADN. Does anyone know of a residency program that accepts ADN? I plan on doing an RN to BSN program somewhere... Not sure as to where as of yet (I'm thinking somewhere online). However, all the residency programs I have looked at have only been for those that have graduated with a BSN.
