    Just a heads up that this statement seems a smidge offensive to this upstate NY nurse who isn't working in upstate NY because I'm unqualified elsewhere. Just saying.
    I didn't mean it to offend you so I apologize. What I meant was that I thought upstate has a lower population so therefore more job availability for RN's...but apparently all of New York is the same

    Oh, I didn't actually take it personally, but if I had a thin skin, it would be a different story. We do have lower population, but we also have smaller hospitals and fewer patients to fill them (its all about proportion.) That being said, I think it is much easier to get jobs here because we don't have quite as many schools dumping out large classes of new grads. My program was the biggest in the area and we only graduated about 100 nurses. The only classmate I am sure didn't get a job fairly quickly is one who moved to HI.

    Anyway, good luck with your job search, and don't underestimate upstate- were pretty awesome.

    Do you know any places upstate that are currently hiring new grads? I am still getting rejected. I also went for an interview at New York Methodist in Brooklyn and got a rejection email. I don't know what to do anymore

    This thread is supremely depressing. I just passed the NCLEX on June 4 and I have no experience, except for clinical rotations. There are so many nursing programs where I live, so I am very stressed about being able to find a job in my area.
