    I am a recent graduate living in Long Island, NY and yes NY does let new grads work on a permit for one year while you prepare for your boards. I am a BSN nurse who graduated 2 years ago. NY Cities salaries are a little higher then Long Island pending on where you are going to work? The base in Long Island is any where between 62-65K, plus ed diff and increasing experience as years go by. I beleive the city is in the high 70s and 80s, possibly higher, where are you moving to? If you have any questions let me know. What hospitals are you applying to and just remember although you are a new nurse there is a national shortage, so don't just accept the 1st position go on multiple interviews and choose the best and if you want med surg do med surg if you don't you can get specialty areas, go for what you want. I was offered NICU, ER and ICU and med surg. I did med surg for the past 2 years and then last month I just switched to ER and I also became a SANE nurse this year. Again if you have any questions let me know and I wish you the best of luck
