I'm a first year nursing student in an ADN program on Long Island. I've been reviewing some of threads about new RN's getting jobs (or rather, not getting jobs) and have to say it's kind of disturbing. I hope it's not accurate.
Here is my question, what is the probability of a new ADN RN getting a job as an RN anywhere in the L.I. area? I'm not too proud to work in any capacity (even in an internship for no pay or low pay), as long as I know the experience I get will pay off in the end. Is employment in a LTC facility more likely, or is that also closed out?
Is there anybody out there with any knowledge about the job market today? Thanks.
I have been currently looking for a job in any capacity as an RN/BSN on long island. I have blanketed my resume for any postion that may match my credentials. So far I have landed 3 interviews, and no job offers. I have 10 years current pediatric homecare experience, 13 years previous NICU experience and a year of med/surg. IT is extremely frustrating. I have almost given up hope at this point. I am subbing as a school nurse for the time being, which i like, but will not be able to get a full time postion in.
Good Luck to you, I hope you have more success than myself.
