    Yes definitely! I spoke with HR and she said I'm moving forward with the process!! A "talent consultant" should be in touch with me within a week for a 15-30 min telephone interview! Yikes!! I'm so scared but excited at the same time!

    Yes that is definitely in your favor to be currently working in a hospital. I do not currently work in a hospital. I have been unable to get a hosptial job anywhere on LI. They def want current experience.

    I am having the same problem. But I do not have years of experience in hospital like you. I graduated a year ago and have 8 months of RN experience in a clinic and also do home care with case management. I had 3 interviews the past 4 months and the result of them is I do not get hired. They hire new grads with no experience and do not consider my clinic/home care job to be a big deal as it is "not hospital experience". I do not understand as in home care and clinic we also use Nursing skills, more so than new grads with no job or even hosp volunteer work. Im so confused they will train new grads but not someone who already has some nursing skills?In the meanwhile I have been getting certified in everything from ACLS to PALS and ran out of certification classes to take. I guess a few months from now I should get looking for a refresher course as well.

    I wish you well. What upsets me more is when I hear that schools around the country and in the city each still graduate 300 students a semester? really there are like no jobs stop recruiting and accepting so many students! Its all for profit for schools, ugh. I am lucky to even work in the clinic as many new RNs are out of school way longer and still no RN job at all.

    Average NYS nursing school has about 100 or maybe a bit more open slots per class. Of that the number of graduates ranges from 100% to in some cases 50%, that is for many programs there are always those who either drop out or are booted out of a program.

    NYS Nursing:Nursing Programs:RN NCLEX Results: 2008-2012

    Remember just because you see in any given year say 200 students from a nursing program graduated that year it very may well be that number combines two classes; that is schools that start classes each fall and spring thus graduate a new batch of nurses every six months, twice in each year.

    Aside from Excelsior College cannot imagine any nursing program having the resources to take on three hundred size classes. *LOL*
