    Hi everyone! I graduated in May and now have two interviews next week. One (face-to-face) where I live locally on a tele/med-surg floor at a prestigious cancer center where I've worked for the past 6 years in an administrative research position and the other (phone) out of state at a well known academic medical center for an oncology research nurse position. I desperately want floor experience so am likely to go with the med-surg tele position locally if given the option of both. Ultimately I wouldn't mind relocating but will try to put that off after I get at least a year of experience under my belt. Any tips or advice? I'm very nervous as although I've worked at a cancer center for years my clinical exposure has been limited. Add that to the fact that I graduated way back in May and this is October and I'm officially doubting whether or not I"m capable. And I'll be starting my RN-BSN program in January so this timing could be a wee bit stressful. Help, lol. What have your experiences been like so far?

    Doesn't seem like anyone is following but that's okay. I always like to read happy updates from new grads so here's one from me for someone else out there looking for reassurance. I got a job! Finally! I'll be starting in November and will be working on the BMT Unit. I'm ECSTATIC

    Hi! Will NMH hire an ADN that will be starting a BSN program? I know some Magnet hospitals will hire ADNs as long as they complete their BSN in a certain timeframe. What do you think?

    I'm starting my new position on a Heme/Onc unit at a major teaching hospital in the SE this coming Monday 9/23. I'm a new grad & SO excited -- and SO scared. Of course, the first couple weeks will be orientation, & then a 10-12 wk. 'Journeys New Grad Residency'. I'm happy to share experiences / absorb shared wisdom / sympathize over newbie mistakes (hopefully none fatal!) / learn how to learn & stay positive in spite of the difficulty & challenges I will surely encounter.

    A BMT is what saved my mom's life. My dream job would be to work on a BMT unit. I've applied to places that I know accept new grads (graduating in December with my BSN). I'm nervous and excited and scared all at the same time.

    Do any of the Chicago Hospitals hire ADN nurses who are pursuing their BSN?
