anyone knows nursing home or agencies taking people with zero year of experience? I have 4 months experience only. I was asked to resign in my first job...

- sadly there's no "list" of places that accept new grads. you'll have to do some foot work, in person applications, online, get your resume and cover letter to all the ones you may be interested in working at. In a sense its a numbers game the more applications you send out the higher the chance of finding that one employer who will give new grads a chance. You want to do targeted sendings, personalize it with the nursing recruiter, director of nursings name per unit. Keep track of which company go what and when. It will happen your first nursing job, stay positive and good luck.
generally the trend has been if you have an ADN avoid magnet hospitals those only want BSN. Aim for city public hospitals, rural areas, nursing homes. of course if you have bsn apply to all. Come back share your research too so other new grads can have a chance to work.
