HI! I am a new grad and I am registered nurse in NJ. I moved from florida to NJ and I have been looking and applying for jobs for the past 2 months and I haven't gotten any interviews. I want to work in a maternal-child unit preferably NICU but I would take anything in that area. I've tried just about anything to make myself a better candidate for a positions but I just can't seem to land an interview. All the nurse recruiters keep telling me that the job market is really tough in NJ especially in the area I'm passionate about. I was just about to lose hope when I heard about the NYU nurse residency program. I sent in all my info, but when I spoke to the nurse recruiter she told me it would take them a month to contact me. I feel hopeless and out of ideas of what to do.
Does anyone know how many new grads they accept for the residency program?
How long does it take to get in?
Can you start in any position, or is just whatever they have?
I am desperate for advice......Thanx
