Inova Health System

  1. Does anybody happen to know if Inova Health Systems will hire ADN-RNs? The job postings on their website for nurse positions list a preference for BSN, or MSN, but it does not say that it is definitely required. Are there any ADN-RNs around that have become employed by Inova recently?

    We have hired some on my floor in the last year. I would say we have hired 2/3 BSN and 1/3 ADN, if you're talking about new grads. For experienced nurses, we have everything from diploma to MSN, with experience being the more important part.

    I have minimal experience, about 1.5 years in the neurology department where I currently work. I guess I would still consider myself a new graduate though. Thanks for your input.

    Yes I do have experience in health care. 2 Years as a CNA and currently I have been working for the past 16 months as a Clinical RN Coordinator for a neurology outpatient practice in Philadelphia. The clinical position was the first job that I landed when I was fresh out of nursing school. I am looking to relocate to the DC area and that is why I am interested in Inova. I was confused by their job postings because it states that they prefer BSNs or MSNs.

    Hi Fourland, the interview was very different from what I expected it to be. They scheduled a lot of us for one time frame and interviewed in a large room with seperate tables with 1:1 interviews. I think it went well, we will hear something by June 8. Yes, they will hire ADNs only if you agree to sign a contract that you will obtain your BSN within 3 yrs of the hire date. There was A LOT of new Grads... Apparently, they are looking to hire 150 nurses.

    Hi Lintastic, I was a CNA for 5 years in LTC. I've worked in telemetry for a year, now doing hospice.

    150 positions placement..!?! Such a big budget of hospital distribute to new hires. SugarPlumRN, do you have any plan to complete BSN/MSN from somewhere else? Thank you very much to share your personal experience.

    Did I miss these postings? Dang! I looked on the INOVA site and only found one posting for a night tele position. Am I looking in the wrong place, or are these 150 jobs gone already? Thanks for any info.

    Hi SugarPlumRn, I was just curious to know if you have been contacted with a decision yet since having your interview. I also interviewed with them that day but I haven't heard back yet.
