I'm a recent grad and just passed my NCLEX a week ago (yay!!). I want to know if I have a chance at the New York Presby New grads residency program, Mount Sinai, or NYU New grads residency. I do not have any summer externship or CNA experience (I applied for externships in college but did not get in, they were too competitive). I have a BSN and I did a 236 hour preceptoship in college in my last semester. I also have a 3.7 GPA. Will this be enough to apply? Do I even have a chance? Is it worth a try or should I just look somewhere else?

What's the worst that happens if you try? You don't get it. If you don't try, you definitely won't get it. Apply away.

I would apply. The most they can say is no! No one here can really tell you if you will get in or not. Go for it, if you don't you won't stand a chance of getting in anyway. :)

Oh no. Don't lose hope. Something will work out for you. I am surprised at how quickly they responded though. I applied to a New Grad program two weeks ago and they are still deciding.

They did not respond to me formally. As soon as my application went through, the computer told me that I am not even qualified :notworthy:...I guess that is how they get rid of the "bad ones" so they can only look at the "good ones" because it will be less work. This is so discouraging...I have no externship experience or CNA experience so I think that is what ruined me ...

Don't take the rejection personal. I heard NYP is on hiring freeze for new grads and only considers internal candidates (those who work or volunteer at NYP) for new grad jobs. Once you have a year of hospital experience it is different. I had almost one year of experience in a clinic and applied to NYP however each time the Online Application would give me a pop up saying "Sorry you do not qualify, your application cannot be forwarded to HR at this time"....all this because the system caught on that I only had 10 month experience and not the "full year" and also not at a hospital. I just started work at a HHC hospital in BK and I forgot all about NYP and do not plan on applying there after I get my year of hospital experience. The whole application process was so arrogant of them to expect us to get experience elsewhere and then bring it to them after another hospital trains us. Not cool. Try applying to HHCs also. They are more new grad friendly. Also apply to non hospital jobs, as any RN job is better than no RN job.

Hi I have been trying HHC for about a month and a half and the positions where given to someone else. I am so desperate right now to get my foot in the door. I live near the 5 boroughs in NY but as of now I am thinking of applying to hospitals in upstate Buffalo, Albany, Rochester etc. Do you think I should do this and then move to that area? I have never been upstate and I am a NYC girl but at this point I just want to get my foot in the door. Do you think I can leave upstate after a year? Will hospitals down here take me after a year of experience?

I find it unfair how they only forward BSN applicants. I know hospitals want to get magnet status but this job search is getting annoying. I know life isn't fair, but NYP's online application is frustrating. Once I click no for the question asking if I have my BSN, it automatically does not forward it to HR. Their requirements are misleading then. They should put "only considering BSN graduates" instead of "BSN highly preferred" I don't know, maybe I'm just frustrated with the job search in NYC. I only have a few more classes to go before I get my BSN, but I just can't wait anymore! I need a job in NYC!
