east coast people

  1. 0 So I am an oncology infusion nurse, currently living in Seattle. I am strongly considering a move to the eastcoast, needing a change! Does anyone who has lived, worked or spent time in Boston or NYC have any reccomendations regarding facilities to look into???

    I have worked at BIDMC and Mass General, both in Boston and liked them. I have worked NYP-Cornell which was good and BIMC in Manhattan which I would not recommend.

    Be aware that there are many nurses and few jobs in either locale so competition is stiff. And the first three on that list stronger prefer either a BSN or substantial experience. And both cities have a high COL, though they tend to pay.

    Great, thank you for the information; gives somewhere to start looking. Currently working on the BSN, one more quarter, and working on my OCN certification. Hopefully that will make me a competitive applicant when I begin searching. Competition is very stiff out here too, a lot of nurses not finding work.

    Have you thought of travel nursing to get your foot in the door somewhere that you are considering? That can help expose you to many different hospitals. I am new at travel nursing, but when I had a hard time getting a job in the Boston area, I signed up with a travel company. For the time being, I stay in the local area and it's so much easier than looking for a job. Good luck to you. I love Boston!
