Updated NYC New Graduate Nursing jobs? - Page 2Register Today!
- Feb 26 by Inorieh nyc is over saturated however its doable just hard if moving is possible do it because you really need to be employed by 1 yrs time of of school otherwise you risk "expiring" out as a stale grad that employers skipover and choose new grads because they say its been too long since your left nursing school and your nursing skills has deteriorated. Apply any and all and have a plan of at what point are you willing to move because time is of essense. Good luck.
- Mar 8 by SherluckyRNQuote from BlackMurse1I absolutely agree with you 100%. Im a new grad well May 2012 and have yet to find a hospital job in NYC. I'm applying out of state and upstate. I'm willing to move if anyone would have me. Love NYC but is life here ain't worth the struggle just to get $35+ an hr when cost of living is also high.
Sorry to be the one to break it to you but Mariahlily is right on the money.
I also was born and raised in Nyc and it was my dream to come back after earning my nursing degree in 2012 to work in the city, earn $33-38/hr and live the life that I left to go to college in upstate. NOT HAPPENING. Here’s the jest, I have a close friend I have known since Junior High School who is a HR manager at NYP and even he couldn’t get me in. The fact of the matter is over a dozen hospitals have closed in the NYC area over the past 5 years. This creates two problems, FIRST, experienced RN’s have to find places of employment and it wasn’t until I had some significant time on the floor did I realize how valuable it is to have someone with experience on the floor working for you.
SECOND: it enables all those institutions to pick and choose what type of nurses they want to hire. NYP asks for your GPA for Christ sake when you’re applying, what in the world does your GPA have to do with your skills on the floor. I work for Strong Memorial I applied and got a reply in less than 3 days and a shadow with an interview in less than 7 days. Places like Arizona, Houston, Cleveland and parts of Florida have a thriving market. Its not worth the pain of applying your butt off and getting no response. There are some who sneak through but most don’t. I have a friend who moved from Nyc to Buffalo worked there for a year and is now moving to Malibu where she will be making $30/hr with her moving expenses paid for.
Look living in Nyc and being a nurse is ideal for many people but the wide world of if you have a license and air in your lungs you will get a job is done for. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere, come back when you have a few years and a Masters under your belt.
Are they hiring new brads at Strong Memorial? How do you like it there?
