    How did you like LTC and hospice? I'm kind of afraid working in LTC just because you're pretty much on your own with 20-30 residents along with LPNs and CPAs of course, but I just don't feel ready to be in charge! lol

    Yes. In fact, before I was hired another lady I graduated with began working there (probably 2 months before) and about a year before that they had hired another new grad.

    My nursing school also pushed the two year med/surg in a hospital setting theory. However, they did not inform us that hospitals were not interested in ADNs. After graduating in 2010, I am still searching for an RN position, as are a lot of my class mates. I am still hopeful that I will find a nursing position eventually.

    I have been told COUNTLESS times that new grads should work in Med-Surg for a couple of years so that they will have a more rounded experience, however I have known several nurses who went right into the medical office setting upon graduation from nursing school and none of them have the desire to work in the hospital setting either. This is mostly due to the fact that they want the stable schedule. These are ladies that I have worked with at a general surgery practice, an orthopedic practice, and OB/GYN office. I've also known a few that have worked in various other settings that never worked in the hospital.

    Depending on your area and the needs in your particular hospital you may or may not have an easy time getting into the hospital as a new grad.
