Good luck on your application. Unfortunately, your previous experience will not really matter - decisions are based on criteria that predict your academic ability - entrance exams & GPA. There is a huge demand for all Houston area CC programs, so you will have some stiff competition.
New graduates have a much harder time finding jobs now than ever before - even in Houston. Right now, BSN grads have a much better chance of landing a job in Houston hospitals. All of the Med Center hospitals require BSN now. However, there are a lot of suburban and community hospitals that still hire ADNs. Non-acute facilities still utilize ADN nurses and I don't think that this will change in the future.
