Hi. I don't live near the D.C. area. I live in SE VA. From what I understand from the VA nursing boards, NOVA (Northern VA) is only accepting mainly BSN Nurses. Now, I don't know how true that is..maybe someone from that area can chime in.
I know that some of the hospitals here in SE VA are not hiring new RN grads currently (or that many), and that one of the hospitals here locally has a hiring freeze. Sorry, I don't think the situation up here is that much different compared to Fla.
Wish you the best!
