I am graduating this August with a BSN...woo hoo! I am looking for nurse residency programs in San Diego, New York City, Washington DC, and Boston. I found a few programs and would love to hear from those who have either gone through the programs in those areas or similar programs. What are the pros and cons? What was the application/interview process like? Were you hired once you completed your program? Any information would be helpful as I begin my transition from student to novice nurse.
Also, if you didn't go through a residency program, could you share your experience.
I feel a little overwhelmed and discouraged about the future. Many of the programs are limited and competitive to get into and posted nursing jobs require a minimum of one year experience.
Thanks so much for the feedback and support :re
