hello fro nyc

  1. I am new to this website but so far i have found it very infomative. I am a new rn graduate with >10yrs exp as an lpn and i am having a great deal of difficulty with the ny hospitals hiring me. Everyone wants you to have exp but no one wants to help you acquire it. I have an Associates degree and that seems to be the prob.

    Come north. You'd be hired in a heartbeat upstate.

    Of course, you won't be able to find Sazon, but one learns to live with the deprivation.

    Hi and welcome salseranurse...if you have 10 yrs experience as an lpn and are now an adn...I don't understand the hypocrisy in the no hiring of nonexperienced nurse here...where, what state are u applying in? I am sure that you would be snatched up in these parts, too, in a split second...no preference for the hospital's part on hiring rn of adn versus rn of bsn unless, of course, it is nurse management position...
    But a regular hospital floor nurse? No, no prob in this state, either, for being hired right away...Sorry to hear you're having a difficult time ....
