I graduated from my ADN program in May and passed boards on first try in July. I had started applying for positions up to 6 months before graduation. I really wanted to work in a hospital. Well this past week brought two hospital interviews! I'm excited. One is on an ortho floor which is fine. I did clinical on that floor. The other is in front a seven person panel to decide which floor I would be best on. There are seven departments offering new grad positions. I applied for both of these positions at least three weeks ago. Don't give up hope to those of you out there waiting. I put about 20 apps out a week starting last november.
