RN in ILLINOIS, looking for a job in NYC

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I have my RN License in Illinois and in the process of transferring my license to NY.

    I just want to ask if some hospitals are hiring even if I haven't finished the license endorsement or is it a pre-requisite for me to have my NY RN License before I will be hired.

    Thank you.

    All I can say is, unless a miracle happens, you will have a very hard time finding a hospital job. The job market is oversaturated with new grads, former grads still searching for a job, RNs with experience looking for a job and many, many others.

    I would send my resume but indicate that NYS state RN license is pending. New York can be a tough market for a nurse, but if you are willing to be flexible you can find a job. Also, If you have a BSN it will help a lot. Personally, I moved back last year and found a job within 7 days. Good Luck!!

    You can definitely start applying but unless you have experience in a specialty it's pretty difficult to get a job.
