What you need to know

A new RN graduate is a registered nurse with less than one year of experience working as an RN.

Application qualifications

The graduate nurse application at Allina Health is for new graduates of accredited associate's or bachelor's RN programs. The requirements for application are as follows:

Application process

Allina Health hires new graduate RNs year-round depending on the availability of RN positions that consider new graduate candidates. There is no deadline for applying.

Once a graduate nurse application has been submitted, candidates are contacted by a nurse recruiter if we're able to consider new graduates for RN positions, and if the candidate is chosen by the hiring manager.

If applicants are not contacted by a nurse recruiter within three months of applying, their applications will no longer be active; they will need to re-apply.

A new graduate RN is a registered nurse with less than 1 year of experience working as a RN.

If candidates have or gain more than one year of experience working as an RN, they are considered experienced RNs and should apply directly for specific positions they are interested in and qualified for.
