How hard is it to find a job in NYC? moving to NYC this july.

  1. Hi guys!

    Im moving back to NYC from Los Angeles this July. Started applying couple weeks ago, but havnt really heard from anyone. Starting to scare the hell out of me. Can anyone please tell me the hiring situation there right now. I have 3 years experience, currently a CTICU nurse for 1 year and a half, 1 year PACU experience and 6 months in a tele unit. Im planning to stay in the CTICU/CSICU. Any hospitals in the city that are actively hiring right now? or they prefer applicants that are already in NYC? Im triying to persue NYP, but havnt heard from them, and the position is gone already. HELP please...

    Hey there,

    I am pretty much in the same boat as you, only I came from LA to NYC as a traveler (NYP). My contract has expired and although I have applied to EACH and EVERY hospital in the NYC area over a month ago (as well as some in lower Westchester county), I have so far heard from one hospital, who scheduled me for a July 30 interview. That was the earliest they could give me.

    I have over five years of critical care experience, but it seems not to matter much out here. I'm actually tempted to go back to LA but I'm going to try and stick it out a little while longer. Thank God for per diem work (knock on wood!).

    Anyway, good luck and please let me know if you hear from anyone. But, maybe you have already and if so please share!

    That's odd... NYP is recruiting like crazy now for the new critical care cardiac tower they are building.... I saw a lot of jobs for CTICU, CCU, C-stepdown, etc....
