    thanks NurseFairy! I have heard great things about Mount Sinai and I'm hoping it all works out smoothly when I start.

    aikz, yes, I graduated with my BSN and I do know for sure that Mount Sinai will not hire ASN who are not matriculated into a BSN program and who will graduate within the year (I asked my nurse manager to see if my brother who is an Associate degree nurse could also get an interview but nope..) They are looking to renew their Magnet status, that is why they prefer BSN. They also discussed how accommodating they are with people who are going back to school, scheduling their shifts around their classes so that's great. Also having those connects can be very helpful. Just ask them to speak to their managers and see if any openings are available when you do have your NY license.
    This is not true. Not sure why he did not get an interview. I have my Associates with experience and am not enrolled in a BSN program.

    New Grad nurses that work there said they kept pushing on them. Sometimes it can take up to 6 months.

    Omg, you are lucky to get a job in Mt. Sinai as a new grad! Are you BSN?

    I'm a new grad from Jersey and just got hired, but I would like to get my NY license later. And I plan to pursue my BSN online while working. Mt. Sinai is one of my ideal places to work in the city. Is it true that they will consider new grads with associates just as long as you are currently enrolled in a BSN program? Cause I figure I'm probably gonna get my NY license anyway before I actually finish my BSN program. Plus my mom has a friend at Mt. Sinai who is a NP there. I think she also has a friend who works in the Neuro ICU. You think knowing people who can recommend me will help?
    Nurse Managers that hire nurses state that they won't hire a New Grad BSN, but I have worked with so many New Grads there. I am not sure if they would hire a New Grad ASN, as I am probably lucky to get accepted there. But, I have lots of experience.

    I think you should call the Mount Sinai recruitment office YOURSELF, or maybe speak to a Nurse Manager that knows the hiring process. That is what did. Nurses there said I would never get in, what a bunch of crock.
