ANY JOB UPSTATE NY?

  1. 0
    I'm a new BSN RN and I have been trying real hard to get a job both upstate and in the city. I currently live in Ulster county but im willing to relocate for a full time poition. Does anyone know of a medical facility that is willing to hire a new RN? I am not too picky with salary, i just need to get the 1 year experience out of the way.

    You don't want to move to LI? I usually hear them saying they are always hiring

    I'm from LI and while they are hiring, they seem to me, to only be hiring certain people and those with good referrals/connections.

    I tried so hard out here on LI and I didn't get anywhere.

    I just got hired at Bassett Medical Center in Otsego county. Try there, and it shouldn't be too drastic of a move for you because you're in Ulster for me it's kind of nerve wracking but I have no choice.

    Also, I tried countless times Albany and Suny Upstate but I didn't hear back from them.

    What I'm noticing bottom line is those with good connections and know people are getting in 80-90 %, or if they're internal employees it really helps.

    I even tried volunteering that would have worked but there were no open positions at the time. I tried the wrong hosp I should have volunteered in those with high turnover.

    All the best...

    Hey! Did you ever consider Buffalo, NY? The hospitals there seem to hire a lot. Also the rent is hella cheap compared to most places. I am from NJ originally and currently live in Buffalo. I will be moving back to NJ next year, however, to care for my dad who's been recently diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimer's.

    Erie County Medical Center is an excellent hospital in Buffalo & I did my clinicals there as well. LOVED the staff and envireonment! www.ecmc.edu


    Good luck to you!!

    Hey Bjorklover,

    Hows it going at Bassett? I've been trying since September in NJ and the city with no luck. I was offered an interview there back in August but turned it down to try and find something here, but with no luck I applied again and fortunately they invited me back for a couple of interviews. How has it been adjusting to life there? How is the hospital? The pay? the people? Would you say its worth going over there for the year to try and get the experience out of the way? Any feedback would help a lot!!!

    It's going good! Go don't wait! Life is quiet, it's cold now and snow! I need to get snow tires. Rent can be anywhere from 500-1000 depending on location and stuff. Pay is low, it's not going to be the salary we were to get downstate.
    People are cool, nice I experienced no problems.
    Yes, come p here get the experience. Then go back down home that's what it looks like 75% of everyone seems to be doing. I would stay 1-2 years. So far I've been here 2 months.

    Thank you so much for this link. I am registered in NY but live in LI. I have to always do SERIOUS research when it comes to upstate. This is excellent!!

    Now I just hope that I would be able to get a position.
