Hey everyone, I've been wanting to start working in NYC for awhile, I've gotten my NY licensure a few years ago and it's time for a renewal. I figured I should put it to use!
I know it's a competitive field in the city, but I was thinking if I did registry/agency work, I can get a taste of east coast nursing, and get familiar with hospitals in the area. I've been as a RN working for the past 6 years in ER (registry for the last 2 years), albeit small community hospitals, but I believe I'm a strong, and hardworking nurse. I've also recently graduated with BSN last may (specifically to meet qualifications for magnet hospitals in the city).
I would appreciate it greatly if anyone could refer registries/agencies in NYC, and any insight as to availability (consistency) of work for agency nurses. Do hospitals in the city require agency nurses to be trauma certified, or have any certificates other than PALS, ACLS, BLS? Again, any input would be greatly appreciated!
