    Yes there are new grad positions, but not everyone gets them. You are lucky that you were able to get in to one. I have worked at OSU for 5+ years as a PCA and I can't get a job there, didn't get into the internship program. And that is with having all kinds of connections and experience, but because I don't have my Bachelors and didn't go to OSU I am at the bottom of the barrel.

    What program did you graduate from?? I know a lot of people that graduated from Columbus area schools in May and they all have jobs in Columbus now.
    Well they must all be really lucky that they were able to find jobs because I am having no luck.

    I am a LPN that just graduated with my RN last August. It has taken me until now to just get my foot in the door for a hospital, and as an LPN I'm not from Ohio and had travel and hospital experience. I also worked for a subacute/high acquity LTAC. Right now there are tons of jobs at OSU, someone told me that when you do the online application click that you at least have 1yr exp or it kicks the application out. Also check out Regency Hospital or Select Speciality Hospital. They will help you get your yr exp and get a foot in the door and offer good training even up to learning how to put in PICC lines. It does help to know someone, but just keep trying. Another idea is possibly trying Adena Hosp in Chillocothe I did my clinical there it's a 30 minute drive but it's a really nice hospital now as big as the Columbus ones but again exp it what you need, and year should do it. Good luck!
    I talked to the nursing recruiter for Select and Regency Hospital and she basically told me they don't hire new grads and wished my luck, recommended that I try to get a job in a nursing home...

    Really? I work at OSU as well (PCA) and a few nurse managers have said that when I graduate with my ADN that my application will be a "formality" and that I can consider myself hired. I hope they were not lying to me.

    Well I don't think they would lie to you, but osu typically only hires new grads in the internship programs, I work on a medical surgical floor and my manager won't hire us uness we go through the internship, which I interviewed for and didn't get. My friend did get in and she said there are very few and nurses who were hired. It may be different floor to floor, but that's pretty much been my experience. I am still applying for a lot of the job postings & hoping for the best. What floor do you work on? I am on 10 west doan, but only until the middle of january. I don't know if you have been told that 90 days after passing nclex you can't work as a pca anymore...

    Well, I am still in school to become a nurse. I haven't graduated yet I guess time will tell.

    Best of luck to you! I know you are in the best possible position to get hired there.

    I'm a float, but I spend most of my time in Ross because that's the internship track I am hoping to get into.

    Well thats good, it may be different at the Ross, but for the most part that is how it is at the main hospital. Best of luck to you as well!

    OSU no longers hires anyone with a ADN. They must have a BSN. Sigh.

    I have heard from several nurse managers that they will still consider someone with an ADN if that individual is a well-known and well-liked PCA at OSUMC. I know Children's only hires ADN nurses if that nurse is actively enrolled in a RN-BSN program.

    I just graduated this past April and passed boards a few weeks ago. I live in NE Ohio, and I can't find anything! A good friend of my parents is the manager of a floor in a nearby hospital and he can't even convince HR to even look at a new grad...

    I don't know what to think! I hear your story all the time, yet a girl I used to work with graduated a few months ago from an ADN program and got hired right away at Cleveland Clinic... and she's not from the area and had no connections. Her only experience was in psych and did not get a job related to psych. I don't get it!
