    **POLL** New 1st Year RN Salary

    You be surprise. Compare the cost of living in California to Mississippi. Big difference therefore big difference in salary

    Lack of new graduate jobs

    All depends on where you live and/or if your willing to relocate

    keiser university

    Yea I plan on spending my whole career with them. And yea ur right make sure your school is regionally accredited or else ur degree means nothing. I know the one I went to Tampa campus is fully accredited

    Expanding job hunt to other States

    Yea i think looking outside of your current state is a good thing. I was hired out of state, luckily for me it's with the VA hospital so I didn't have to apply for endorsement since they accept any state licensure. But I think as a new grad it is important to expand your job search to not just ur city or state provided u have the means to do so

    VA Medical Center

    Hi I was offered 2 positions at 2 separate VA facilities and I am a recent new grad with a ADN and BS in health ed & behavior. Took the position now waiting for salary. So yes as a new grad ADN u can get hired. For me it was not hard. I applied and around 2 weeks later had an interview. IDK about the shift dilemma u heard about but when i was interviewed and offered the position I was brought on to work nights 12 hour shifts and they never mentioned shifts changing to shorter ones

    keiser university

    I am a recent graduate this past April. Just a heads up even though your only taking 2 classes a semester they are very demanding. You won't have much time to work. Your gonna have clinical, homework, ATI, and exams. Your class schedule changes a lot. And each semester gets harder. But Keiser is a good school. In my opinion. Passed the NCLEX in June with 75 questions. Received 4 new grad residency job offers. And now I am going to be working for the VA hospital.
