I am graduating from an associate's degree nursing program next week, and I am planning on relocating to Norfolk. I saw that Sentara Leigh Hospital is having an RN career fair, and I plan to attend that. I am curious if this hospital hires new graduates with associate degrees. I have noticed that many hospitals prefer that you have your BSN. If anyone has any feedback on this, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

princess ann is a new hospital that's opening, and from my interview at leigh i found out that a lot of staff is leaving to the new hospital, leaving a lot of room for new hires. also bon secours is new grad friendly.
