GN vs RN

Is there a big difference between working as a GN vs RN?

From the post below, it makes it seem as if you are employed as a GN only if you have graduated, but not have taken the NCLEX yet (no license).

But for my resume, I'm going to apply for a GN position even though I'd of have a license already. Mainly because I think you get a good orientation to the floor before being on your own.

Any thoughts on this?

There should be no difference in orientation for a new nurse, whether they already have their license or they don't. If you have a license, then you are no longer a GN. Simple as that.

You should be getting the full and complete orientation, no matter what your license status is. If they are saying something different at that facility, then look someplace else.
