Just like what the title says, I am an experienced ICU RN (7 years) who is having difficulty finding another job. I am currently working in a community hospital in the suburbs of New York and want to transfer to a hospital with higher acuity cases because I want to see more of critical care beyond that of CHF overload/bad ETOH or drug OD/MI/Stoke/post-cardiac arrest/etc. I have been trying to get into several large medical centers in the city but I haven't had much luck. I have a Master's degree and CCRN and I can't believe that nobody has even contacted me back. I'm just wondering if any of you guys have any tips on how to get into these academic centers. Thanks a lot!

Yes, MSN. It really is tough just getting somebody to notice my resume. I'm sure that every position there must be over 50 applicants for these kinds of hospitals. Thanks for the encouragement.
