New ADN Grad....which hospitals in Louisville hire ADN's?

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I will be graduating nursing school soon. I'm currently living in Texas, but I plan to move to Kentucky. I was wondering which hospitals hire new grads (ADN)? I plan to do a RN-BSN program in the future. I currently live in Houston and a majority of the hospitals only hire BSN. I've heard some horror stories from previous students saying that getting a job down here as a new grad is extremely competitive. Also, has anyone transferred their nursing license from another state? I know Texas and Kentucky are nursing compact states so I'm wondering if it will be a smoother transition. Any replies are well appreciated. Thank you!

    I'm a traveler in Louisville. I know most of the hospitals will hire ADN but strongly prefer BSN. As far as your license goes, KY and TX are both compact states though so you should be good.
