ASN New Grad Advice

  1. Hi,

    I graduated from an ASN program June 2017, just passed NCLEX a few weeks ago, and have been accepted to several BSN programs. I have been searching for jobs since I passed but every position I find is the same: at least a year of experience.

    I am very open, it doesn't matter to me what the position is or even if it's per diem/holidays/weekends as I just want to gain experience. I have a good full time job so I don't need the benefits .. just gain experience so that I can eventually make the transition from my current job to nursing full time. I am going to get ACLS and PALS certified this summer.

    Im in Massachusetts, any advice is greatly appreciated. I have followed this site from pre nursing on and am grateful for all the wonderful advice I have received thus far.

    Many thanks!

    Cast a wide, wide net and take the first nursing job you get offered. You are nearly a year post-graduation- and the chances of you getting into any type of new grad program are dwindling with every day you let pass.

    Apply EVERYWHERE- nursing homes, assisted living, clinics , dialysis- EVERYWHERE and get working ASAP,
