    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.

    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?
