I graduated a year ago in New Orleans with my ADN, I chose ADN over BSN because of the school I wanted to go to. I am a VERY hands on learner and did my best learning in clinical and the school I chose gave us tons of clinical experience. I was all set to graduate and start in an ER but then my husband's job transferred him to Virginia. Well, the part of Virginia I am in must really have something against New grad ADN's because it's been a year of applying at the 3 hospitals near me and I don't even get call backs, even with many years of pre nursing school experience working as an stress test/ECG technician and inpatient Geriatric psych. So I started in an Urgent Care clinic to at least have work and some experience and when I first started I worked mostly in the clinic doing triage, strep testing, flu testing, giving meds (mostly IM and some iv fluids) but now mainly work with retrieving our lab results and reviewing them and either calling patients to advise them about their labs or talking with our doctors about our critical labs. It's flexible and not terrible but I'd like to get into a hospital for better pay and the opportunity to keep my skills fresh. I plan on starting my BSN soon and pray that will help me get into a position but from what I'm learning, hospital jobs are like political games here. Anyway there are lots of clinic RN jobs, but they often come with using less skills and less pay.
