    Anyone know about job outlook for Adn's in Southern California?
    Poor for acute care. I have heard of new grad ADNs currently in a RN to BSN program get hired at an acute care hospital but only if they knew someone and had a hook up. Most new grads fighting for positions right now are BSN so chances of you getting an acute care job as a new grad ADN are slim. I know new grad BSNs that can only find jobs in dialysis, hospice, LTC/SNFs...

    It would be difficult to get hired with an ADN at most magnet hospitals.

    I'm retaking my TEAS and reapplying for October. If I don't get in, I will have to reevaluate. I'm still pretty down about not getting into August. I would have retaken my TEAS sooner, but my counselor didn't think it was necessary. If you don't have at least a 90 on the TEAS, I wouldn't even bother applying to WGU in So Cal. It's brutal out there.

    I've been working as a CNA in a hospital for 4 years...Every single person that I know that already works in a hospital doing something else ie: CNA, PCA/T, Phlebotomy, Transport, Monitor Tech/Unit Secretary etc. has had zero issues getting into their hospitals new grad RN programs with an ADN. However, my friends who are not employed at a hospital prior to nursing school/through nursing school have major difficulty getting into a new grad RN program. Alot of hospital strongly prefer BSN but I definitely know many ADN grads that are still getting jobs in acute care. In 2-3 years, it may be a whole different situation though...
