I am currently a Pediatric RN BSN in Oklahoma City, OK. My husband and I are planning on moving to NYC in early to mid November. I have filled out the required application paperwork to apply for a New York RN license and sent them in this week; however, when I spoke to someone at the NY board, they said I didn't have much time to let my paperwork go through the system. I realize I should've sent them the paperwork much earlier, I procrastinated!
My question is this, will hospitals in NYC be willing to interview and possibly even hire me if they know my license is currently in the process of going through? Will hospitals take me seriously if they know I am currently licensed in Oklahoma and I will be getting my NY license shortly? Should I go through an Agency until my NY license comes through before I apply for a full-time permanent position at a hospital?
