Job outlook



I'm starting an ADN program in the fall in southeast NC. I was wondering what is the job outlook for new graduate nurses? My school is supposed to have a high job placement, but I am still worried. Any information would be great. Also, what can I do to increase my chances of having a job before graduation or right after. I have applied for CNA jobs, but have not had any luck and I wouldn't really have time to work as a CNA anyway due to the heavy course load.

CNA experience will help. Look into HH aide work is very flexible. I did it throughout my ADN program. Make sure you have a plan for your BSN, most places are going to require you to sign an agreement that you complete it within 2 years.
