New BSN RN grad in NY...Register Today!
- by coolpeachmoy Sep 18, '12Hello! I graduated in December 2011 and passed the NCLEX in February 2012. I have applied to hospitals all over New York...all the boroughs, Long Island, Westchester county, Albany, etc. I keep going back on to the career sections of the hospital websites and apply to every position that I see open up. I also tried various agencies and still nothing. Have a careerbuilder account also. It just seems that I don't have any luck. Any encouraging tips for keeping a old new grad fresh in this frustrating job search situation?
