ASRN Completes the "Save the Grads" Jobs Program for New Registered Nurses
(April 6, 2014) The American Society of Registered Nurses (ASRN) has completed the "Save the Grads" jobs program after three straight years in response to the entry-level graduate jobs crisis.
With 2010 data indicating that nationally, 36% of new grads couldn't find work 4 months after graduating, and in California alone, 43% of new grads were unable to find work 18 months after graduation, unemployment for entry-level nurses remained at historically record-high unemployment rates since the start of the great recession. The "Save the Grads" jobs program has been successfully completed it's mission to allow entry-level RNs to find employment.
Its purpose was to keep new and recent RN graduates in the field of nursing. The "Save the Grads" job program identified over 50,000 "hidden" entry-level RN hospital jobs across the nation.
These entry-level jobs were made available in the ASRN "Members-Only".
This program significantly reduced unemployment among new graduates during the past 3 years.
