Hey, I'm a RN with her BSN in Georgia and wish to move to NYC next year. I understand the high cost of living in the city but I wish to know more about different hospitals and how to get a job in the city. I also have family that lives in the city (Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn). If you guys have any good advice I would appreciate it. Thanks.
That's funny, I was just thinking the other day that if I could't find a job (I'm a recent grad from the area) within a yea, I would move to Georgia.
There are the HHC hospitals (the city owned hospitals):
Bellevue Hospital Center
Coney Island Hospital -Brooklyn
Elmhurst Hospital Center -Queens
Harlem Hospital Center -Manhattan
Jacobi Medical Center -Bronx
Kings County Hospital Center-Brooklyn
Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center -Bronx
Metropolitan Hospital Center -Manhattan
North Central Bronx Hospital -Bronx
Queens Hospital Center-Bronx
Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center -Brooklyn
NYU Langone Medical Center -Manhattan
Colombia Presbyterian/Weill Cornell -Manhattan (Buying up a lot of hospitals)
Maimonides Medical Center -Brooklyn
Kinsgbrook Jewish Medical Center-Brooklyn
SUNY Downstate -Brooklyn (I don't know what is going on here, are they going to close, are they being bought?)
This list is most likely incomplete, because I'm mainly familiar with Manhattan/Brooklyn hospitals
However I can only speak for the new grads, the situation is dire, there is an over saturation of new nurses, and nobody wants to hire us.
I would wait for the responses of more mature and experienced nurses before making any life altering decisions.
Good Luck! :)
