2012 Update on VA/DC/MD hospitals that hire ADNs?

  1. 0
    There are a lot of outdated (but still somewhat helpful) threads on DC/VA/MD hospitals that will hire new grad ADNs.

    Can people please provide an update on this if you have some inside info?

    I'm just doing some planning. I've already been reviewing some hospitals' job posts to see if they say "BSN preferred" but a little inside info would be helpful. I will also check with students/profs in my program to see where they're getting jobs.

    (SIDENOTE: I plan to do a RN-BSN program when I'm done and will place this on my resume)

    Inova hires ADNs with an agreement that the nurse will obtain a BSN in 3 years.

    Thanks for the update. Wow, I had eliminated them. Everyone says they don't hire ADNs and their website says BSN preferred on all the postings. Plus, they're Magnet which makes me think the chances are slim...Hmmm...

    I like Inova though. I used to work there. We'll see how things turn out when it's time for me to apply

    No problem. Two new grads that were in my orientation were ADNs (there were 9 of us).

    Starting January of this year, Inova will not hire anyone without a BSN in hand, unless internal hire with contact to get BSN within 3 years

    This is very true. I was contacted for an interview and was later told that it is now their policy not to hire nurses without their BSNs.
