    I graduated in December and was able to get a job this month. A lot of hospitals are hiring new grads but may not necessarily advertise the job as a new grad position. The qualifications may say experience preferred. Also, it's easier to find jobs for BSNs than ADNs. Sign up for email alerts on job websites for new grad positions.

    Good luck.

    If I may ask, where did you find a job? Were you an ADN graduate or BSN graduate?

    I have my BSN and got a job in Children's Hospital new grad residency program. Using your connections from clinical sites and volunteering at a hospital can be great ways to get into a hospital. Unfortunately a lot of hospitals will not hire ADNs because there are too many new grad nurses and can be picky. I know that working as a CNA and volunteering for two+ years really helped me get my job.

    Good luck.
