    I'm curious about the stats here related to new grad job hunts.
    1. How many places have you applied so far?
    2. How many new grad postings vs. regular postings?
    3. How many have you heard from one way or the other?
    4. Any job offers yet?

    1. 3 Hospitals in my area
    2. 2 New Grad positions and the rest were regular postings (multiple postings in each hospital)
    3. Heard from all 3 hospitals, 5 interviews
    4. 2 Job offers and possibly a 3rd by next week

    For me...
    1. 15 hospitals and 18 jobs
    2. 13 new grad, 5 regular postings
    3. Five - three outright rejections, one interview and subsequent rejection, and one upcoming interview
    4. None yet!

    Feel free to come back and update us about any changes, especially if you get some good changes. Thanks for giving in to my curiosity!
    1. One hospital - my capstone unit
    2. New Grad Nurse Residency
    3. I got called to schedule an interview less than a week later
    4. They called me 30 minutes after my interview to offer me a job and I accepted- it's my dream job in Crisis ED 😊

    Just have to say that that's awesome. I'm glad it was an easy process for you - that doesn't seem to be the case for most people.

    Sorry I meant to reply...
    1. How many places have you applied so far? About ten
    2. How many new grad postings vs. regular postings? About 6-7 new grad postings and the rest were regular postings
    3. How many have you heard from one way or the other? I've heard from probably 5
    4. Any job offers yet? 2 so far. The new grad application/hiring process takes soooo long for all of them but it's ok because I was able to get into a very great residency program.

    Finished RN in Dec '12 (in Direct-entry program), licensed end of Jan '13, employed per diem in Feb '13, full-time May '13.

    1. Applied to 50+ jobs
    2. Very few new grad posting in my neck of the woods (Boston), so almost all regular postings
    3. 4
    4. 2. Took a per diem substitute school nursing job 1 month after being licensed, used that experience to apply for and get a full-time school nurse job (I love community nursing, wasn't looking for a med-surg job even though I did apply for several because I was told I should).

    I've been out of school for a long time, but my cousin just graduated earlier this month. I helped her look for jobs, so I can answer some of these questions on her behalf, lol.

    1. How many places have you applied so far?
    She applied for eight jobs. Six hospital, one home health, and one nursing home.

    2. How many new grad postings vs. regular postings?
    A mix of both, but mostly new grad positions.

    3. How many have you heard from one way or the other?
    8 interviews.

    4. Any job offers yet?
    8 offers.

    I also met a new grad who was recently hired on to the unit where I work. She said she applied for three positions and was offered jobs at all three. I know the position she was hired for on my unit was not a new grad position.
