New Grad job hunt San Antonio area.

  1. 0
    Hello everyone, I am new to this area/state and have been looking around for hospitals to apply at. I am a new grad with no experience (not sure if CNA experience counts) and just graduated with my ADN on December 2013. I've seen many job openings at Methodist Healthcare and I've noticed under the "experience" section it says: RN I “ Less than six months experience. MHS practice for RNs with less than six months experience is to attend an RN Residency program."

    Does this mean I have to apply for their residency program in order to get a job there as a new grad? If that is the case, does anyone have any idea of when the hospitals around here start accepting applications for the program?

    I'm new to the residency program idea. I don't know much about it and I've notice mostly all the hospitals in SA have a residency program (Baptist, Southwest General, Christus..). Please help me understand. Any insight on the hospitals around here would be great. Thanks in advance

    most of the time you do have to do a residency/internship as a grad nurse. i actually just applied to one in san antonio, have you looked on indeed.com? try using "nurse residency" in the search bar. good luck!

    Omg thank you so much! I did type in "nurse residency" on their website and a whole bunch of jobs came up. Do I just apply to one of those to be considered for the GN program? No idea how all this works.

    It sucks being employed

    it does, but just think of it as an opportunity to do things you never had the time to do before! i actually accidentally applied to one that wasn't a GN position, WOOPS! they were nice about it and told me to apply to a GN position instead. keep your head up, we are qualified registered nurses! our time will come! (:
