  5. Calling Code Blue in ED
    Since there is already a team in place in the ER fully capable of handling a code 24/7, it seems extremely counterproductive to have a Code Blue Team respond to the ER. Also, it takes away care from...

  11. How many new grad associate degree nurses have landed jobs recently?
    I graduated this past December with an ADN and got a job in the unit I was already working in as a tech. I highly recommend students try to get a job while still in school if possible.

  13. 7p-7a or 3p-3a...any insight?
    Thanks again for all your input and advice. I ended up going with the 3p-3a shift. My preceptor works days so it looks like it will be a while before I will actually work that shift.

  15. Employability of new grad nurses in Georgia
    I couldn't agree more. The best way to land a job as a new grad is to work as a tech/nurse extern/PCT during school, even if it's only during your last semester. That's how I got my job in the ER.

  17. Too late to apply to PCT jobs?
    I agree with the above, it never hurts to try. I applied for an ER tech job in August, started in September and I was graduating in December. They actually liked the fact that I was graduating soon...

  21. Anywhere in the Country hiring New Grad RNs with Associates Degree?
    Atlanta, Georgia. Not only within the city, but there are a ton of hospitals outside of the city that will hire ADNs. Check hospitals from Atlanta down to Columbus, GA and Macon, GA. Good luck.
