I wasn't really looking for a job because I already have a full job. But one of the top hospitals in NYC called me for an interview and I was like WTH. Everything went well so now I have two full time jobs in the city. I... Read More

    And these jobs are perfectly flexible with each other? I call BS. At least you made up a question at the end to technically abide by the TOS.
    I'm able to schedule my own schedule and it does workout. It's pretty draining I might add. I barely have time for anything...

    I'm curious as to why your question even matters ? If you have a job in the specialty area that you want to work in then what do you care? It's not like your working to gain experience in a broad specialty such as med/surg to move on to a specific specialty down the line. I think the question you should be asking yourself is, which position should you give up?
    My question regards to the fact that I want to move to cali ASAP. So the sooner the better so I can enjoy the sun there! If working two jobs means employers see me as more experience than it might be easier to get a job there compare to working one job.

    You know how many unemployed new grads are hating you right now? (not me, I have a job already, ONE job)
    Haha. I figure from some of the response already... but there are sour apples everywhere... I hope they all do find jobs. I might be quitting one job so that opportunity can go to a new grad...

    Yeah, I fully admit that I am jealous. But it also seemed suspicious to me, because I have worked for some of the major hospitals in the city and none have ever been that flexible with me.

    Can I offer a suggestion? Why don't you keep one FT job and see if you can pick up per diem work at the other? Per diem pays a lot more without all the commitment.

    And if you browse this site at all I don't have to tell you that there are plenty of males that are desperately seeking employment in NYC. I didn't think that assuming your male privilege has gotten you these jobs added to the discussion. Happy International Women's Day, everybody!

    I live in New York and HR reps from several hospitals have all said the same thing: you need a year of acute care experience before you can work as an RN in the ED. They say it's a state law. I could be wrong though!

    It is not a law. That's ridiculous. New grads start in EDs in NY all the time.

    It is a state law for a nurse to have a year of experience in order to work in EDs
    New grads start in EDs in NY are in the special fellowship or residency program

    If this is a state law (which I don't believe for a second) do you have proof?

    Working 2 full time jobs is a bad idea...you will burn out working 6 back to back 12 hour shifts. Pick which one you like the most and then choose the other one as Per Diem (like a shift a week or a shift every 2 weeks) so you have time during the week to rest. I received two offers also, one of them after I was already in orientation for the first hospital that offered me the job. I told the second hospital due to my schedule I could only do per diem. It is bad for your health to work too many hours and to have little recreation and rest time.

    As for new grads in the ER, I know classmates with Zero experience in nursing or health care being hired for the ER. It all depends on the hospital and the circumstances. One classmates told me she got hired in ER along with 3 other new grads as all the applications the hospital received for ER where from new grads ...so the hospital had no choice but to take the new grads.

    Nope. That's not true. Are you from NY?
