After someone completes a 2-yr Registered Nurse (RN) program, where would they find employment?

I would like to know if hospitals would employ someone who just completed an RN program, or if additional certification is needed (CPR, ACLS)? When I was looking at RN job listings, most hospitals and other companies want someone with at least 1-2 years of experience. Where would recently-graduated RNs find employment? I am starting my RN program in the fall, so I would like to know. Thank you!!

If you want to work in a hospital setting be sure you have those trainings certification and a licensed to practice nursing. If you don't have those try a smaller setting work that ables you to practice your profession. For sure your experience will be credited when you apply for a nurse in a Hospital.
