I am looking for info on whether an ADN new grad can get hired in San Diego hospitals.

I am starting an ADN program but worried in San Diego many jobs only seem to want to look at BSN candidates, even for recent/new grad programs.

Thoughts?? Thanks!

Are you going to a community college in San Diego County?  If so, you should be able to get a job.  Your clinical rotations will be in local hospitals and are a chance to establish a network.  You can also work in LTC as a new grad RN.  I would advise getting your BSN fairly fast after graduation through a bridge program.  The San Diego County job market is not very good for healthcare, I'm afraid.  A lot of people want to live here, creating more competition for jobs.  There are also a lot of retired military and active duty military spouses looking for nursing positions, which drives down pay and increases competition.  That said, people do get jobs.  Good luck.
