I 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!
Methodist 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.
