Quote from Papadoc
I'm fairly new to this forum, so forgive me if question like this had been discussed here before. I've heard from several of my friends (mostly ANPs) that the market for NP jobs in NY/NJ area is not good. They also say that the market to join some well-established medical groups as a partner is even worse. Is it realy that bad in Tri-State?
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
Cooper, underwood, lady lords, and others are hiring pas and nps to their facilities. Numerous hospitals in NJ are going toward the nps and pas....it is a slow process. My friends who are NPs were recent hire and the pas as well. Therefore, you have to look for the jobs and market yourself to the employer. It may be successful for you.
I know the market is flooded by FNPs and PAs who are in primary health. I decided to go AcuteNP because it will help me to land a job in the er and open other opportunities for me.
Lastly, it depends of the location you may want to work in and there are locations no one wants to work in. Those are the areas you should look at for a start and work your way down to the area you like to be in. I know I am going to a city that will offer me skills, knowledge, multiculture, and seeing a variety of injuries.
