ASRN Extends the "Save the Grads" Jobs Program for New Registered Nurses

Sausalito, California (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

The American Society of Registered Nurses (ASRN) has extended the “Save the Grads” jobs program for the third straight year in response to the entry-level graduate jobs crisis.

With data indicating that nationally, 36% of new grads can't find work 4 months after graduating, and in California alone, 43% of new grads are unable to find work 18 months after graduation, unemployment for entry-level nurses remains at historically record-high unemployment rates since the start of the great recession. The “Save the Grads” jobs program has been extended another 12 months.

Its purpose is to keep new and recent RN graduates in the field of nursing. The “Save the Grads” job program will identify up to 50,000+ additional “hidden” entry-level RN hospital jobs across the nation.

These entry-level jobs will be available in the ASRN “Members-Only” area.

It's anticipated that this new program will significantly reduce unemployment among new graduates within the next 6-9 months.

“Save the Grads” is another good reason to join ASRN.

Are you a new or recent grad? Here's what you get with “Save the Grads”:

  • Newsletters on hiring hospitals, hiring trends, tips on getting hired & more.

  • A dedicated entry-level career board, with thousands of current “hidden” entry-level hospital jobs.
  • Job alerts for your location and specialization, delivered right to your mailbox.
  • Notifications of new grad programs from participating hospitals.

New and recent graduates can access this critical information by joining ASRN at heavily discounted membership rates. Entry-level and recent graduates will be offered memberships for only $50 (60% off the regular membership fee of $125).

New graduates will be entitled to Full Membership status, which includes full voting rights and privileges.

Additionally, all new and recent graduates will receive full member benefits, including the ASRN Journal of Nursing
