On the application will they have you specify? I want to have apply per diem at Columbia or Cornell uni Hospital. The travel would be like an hour and a half so you see why I'm shooting for per diem. I was thinking the remowness of these hospitals would boost my application. What is your opiniin?
it takes like 1800 hrs or something like that to sit for the exam. Which is essentially 1 year of full time ICU work. Honestly, with no ICU experience the answer is No, I'm pretty sure they do not hire new grads into their ICUs, at least I know my PCD didn't. Even trying to get a regular med/surg job with no hospital experience is extremely difficult. Your best bet would be to get a job in whatever ICU/hospital you can and then get a year or so of solid experience then make the jump to NYP. Idk if your LPN experience will count or not, I would bet on that it WONT count, but I honestly don't know.
As far as the CRNA shadowing goes, I'm going to have to respectfully decline. Sorry.
As far as the resume goes, I had TNCC, CCRN, CEN, ENPC, EMT, PALS. Most of those certs I didn't even technically use because I worked in an adult ICU. Firefighter/EMT of 12-13 years and the list goes on.
