ADN jobs in Houston Suburbs?
- 0Feb 12 by Kay8loveI wasn't even considering ADN before, but now am just because the schooling schedule would be SO much more convenient with small children. I have a previous bachelors and would later do the RN-BSN program somewhere.
Is the ADN program even worth it? The advisor I spoke with at TWU told me that even in the suburbs ADN grads aren't getting positions, but maybe that's her job to sway me to their BSN program . We live in Katy, so I would be trying to get a position in a Katy hospital, not the med center. I obviously don't want to go through school and then not be able to find a job.
I searched this topic and all the threads were a few years old. I also called the local hospitals and left VM with HR people to ask about this, but so far only Texas Childrens West has replied. The lady said they are accepting ADNs but prefer BSNs.
Thank in advance!

- 2Feb 12 by Nalon1 RN/EMT-PI would not say ADN/ASN new grads are not getting jobs, but it is getting very hard.
My understanding is Methodist (any location) will not hire new grads unless you have a BSN.
TCH West will hire ADN/ASN's but prefers BSN's, same for Memorial Hermann (Katy, Memorial City and Sugarland).
Cy Fair Hospital does hire ADN/ASN, I know quite a few that have gotten hired there.
They further out you go, the better chances of being hired (Bellville, Navasota, Columbus hospitals all hire new grad ADN/ASN's)
- 1Feb 19 by fitmommaMethodist Katy will hire ADN's, but prefer BSN's. Recently they had a freeze on hiring because they took over Christus and they acquired many nurses from there. I think it has something to do with magnet status. Memorial Hermann Katy hires ADN's too. I am not saying it would be easy to get a job as an ADN in Katy, only that it is absolutely possible. Having a BSN gives you much better chances at landing a job.Last edit by fitmomma on Feb 19
- 1Feb 20 by Kay8loveSounds like we are in similar situations- I was planning on an ADN just because the programs worked so much better for us and our two little ones. Now I'm leaning towards UHVs 12 month bsn program. It sounds really intense, but my husband votes I just get it all over with quickly. Good luck!!
