I work in the ED at NYU. We have new manager and director who are very much interested in hiring the right people. You dont need ED experiance but it is preferred. We have recently hired nurses from other disciplines and as a collective the staff are very involved in orientating newcomers. Work has started on our new ED which will be completed by 2013 so we need more staffing. We have been approved for something like 12 new full time slots. go to the online website and drop your resume

well I know most places don't like to hire for the ED with less than a year experiance BUT you should apply regardless because you never know. if you have an EMS background that can help you also. Like most ER's in the city, it is very face paced and busy, since st vincents closed. many places need bodies. go ahead and apply.

I was told that by NY Law, you have to have one year of experience before you can work in an ER. Is that true?

I have 8 years of experience in EMS, do you think that would help?

I have never heard of such a law. A nurse is a nurse regardless of where you work, your basic duties don't change. As long as you have your bcls, acls and/or pals you can work in the ED. Before I got hired at my last hospital, I had worked as an EMT for 4 years and a medic for 3 years. Only ED personnel can appreciate the pre hospital services skill set. I got in with just a year of experience from my previous ED and my EMS background. I know other medics that became nurses and migrated directly to the ED. Your best bet into any unit is to work the manager, if they want you, you will get hired. Go ahead and out your application in.

I have just joined AN and can't PM anyone yet. Would you be willing to email with me off board? I have a few other questions.

Hi Siegolindo, how are you? thank you for sharing info on NYU langone med center. It's considered one of the best hospitals in the USA.

I was wondering how is the culture there? are you managers supportive of staff, especially if you want to go back to school, can you choose days to work, and in general do you make your own schedule? is there a high turnover of nurses? I know there are 8 holidays there, do you have to work on holidays and if you do, do they pay 1.5 rate? if you are a new person, can you work days or all new people start from night shift? do you draw blood and do EKGs yourself or CNAs?

sorry for asking so many questions, I appreciate your response! Thank you!
