Nursing Programs & Jobs

  1. I have 2 questions: 1) How are the job prospects for new nurse graduates in NYC and Long Island (esp. for those with an A.S. degree)? I live on LI, but I'm interested in both locations.

    2) If I apply to almost every community college in NY, would I have a decent shot at getting accepted into at least 1 RN program or should I also apply to LPN programs as a standby? I have a 3.1 undergrad GPA, but I also have an unrelated Master's degree. I'd have completed the pre-requsites for the nursing programs by the end of spring 2008 (do you think I still have a chance for fall 2008 or I have to wait until I'm completely finished)? Ok, that was 3 questions, lol.

    Also, I know about the accelerated BSN programs, but the schools are too expensive.

    Thanks in advance.
