    Hi

    Just wondering do you know how long the whole hiring process takes? I've applied online and I feel like it's taking so long to get any response. I'm getting nervous that I will never find a job. I graduated in May and took my boards in September. I have my BSN. The whole job search thing has been so stressful, I'm getting nervous and depressed.
    Hey Risa,

    It took me about a month and a half for the entire process from applying to interviewing to getting the job so yeah, it'll take a while. During orientation, the nurse recruiters came in and told us that for each position available there are about 400 applicants and for new grad positions there are more like 900 applicants for each one. So yes, you may not receive any info or callbacks due to the high volume of applicants but don't get discouraged, you might be one of the lucky few to get through! Apply everywhere and anywhere that has an opening and even apply for units that you personally might not want because although I preferred peds or L&D, I ended up on a med-surg unit. Good luck on your search!

    I work at Sinai and I'm so happy that some of you guys got hired. Imwas getting depressed reading about how hard new grads were finding the job market. Yup you get paid for everyday of in class orientation. I think the starting pay total comes to a out mid 80's ( $85,000) annually. Ummm I forgot the other questions but fire away. I'm all ears.
    This salary is after night diff right? Lol and jw, what kind of unit are you on? And how do you like it? Just after a couple of days of orientation, I already feel like I'm going to really love Mount Sinai because they are very supportive and want us to be successful.

    Hey Samrn9862!

    I am a new grad as yourself and I am truly discouraged with the job market out here in NYC. I have left a message for the recruiter, e-mailed, left my resume and a few references in person a couple times and still nothing at Mount Sinai!

    I am just curious to know how did you get the attention of the nurse recruiter?

    Any info would be great!

    Thanks!!

    thanks NurseFairy! I have heard great things about Mount Sinai and I'm hoping it all works out smoothly when I start.

    aikz, yes, I graduated with my BSN and I do know for sure that Mount Sinai will not hire ASN who are not matriculated into a BSN program and who will graduate within the year (I asked my nurse manager to see if my brother who is an Associate degree nurse could also get an interview but nope..) They are looking to renew their Magnet status, that is why they prefer BSN. They also discussed how accommodating they are with people who are going back to school, scheduling their shifts around their classes so that's great. Also having those connects can be very helpful. Just ask them to speak to their managers and see if any openings are available when you do have your NY license.
    This is not true. Not sure why he did not get an interview. I have my Associates with experience and am not enrolled in a BSN program.

    New Grad nurses that work there said they kept pushing on them. Sometimes it can take up to 6 months.

    Omg, you are lucky to get a job in Mt. Sinai as a new grad! Are you BSN?

    I'm a new grad from Jersey and just got hired, but I would like to get my NY license later. And I plan to pursue my BSN online while working. Mt. Sinai is one of my ideal places to work in the city. Is it true that they will consider new grads with associates just as long as you are currently enrolled in a BSN program? Cause I figure I'm probably gonna get my NY license anyway before I actually finish my BSN program. Plus my mom has a friend at Mt. Sinai who is a NP there. I think she also has a friend who works in the Neuro ICU. You think knowing people who can recommend me will help?
    Nurse Managers that hire nurses state that they won't hire a New Grad BSN, but I have worked with so many New Grads there. I am not sure if they would hire a New Grad ASN, as I am probably lucky to get accepted there. But, I have lots of experience.

    I think you should call the Mount Sinai recruitment office YOURSELF, or maybe speak to a Nurse Manager that knows the hiring process. That is what did. Nurses there said I would never get in, what a bunch of crock.
