In 6 months of applying I only got 4 interviews and I sent out at least 90 apps. If you aren't qualified they won't even respond to your application so my feeling is that your interviewing skills could be the problem. Something your doing or communicating is preventing them from hiring you. I could be wrong, but this is just my opinion. By the way, I do have a BSN so I can't say I have experienced what you have but I also had trouble finding a job. I couldn't get interviews, but the 4 I did get, I got offers from 3. If you get a interview, its usually your job to lose at the point of the interview. You should try North Shore LIJ, they have 14 hospitals. Go on their website, make a profile and you can apply to all open positions in those hospitals. They do also prefer BSN and require you to complete yours within 5 years of your hire date. From what I understand, they will soon phase out adn altogether in the future. Same for most hospital in NYC, they all want magnet status, good luck. Getting your BSN online is going to be very expensive, especially if you aren't working as a nurse.
