NYC LPN jobs


graduated valedictorian, class president and received Nursing Award for my Class!!!! Moved to NYC July 2013 and CAN NOT find an LPN job!!!! I am soooooo frustrated. I am considered without experience and have applied to every single job listing on websites, personally took my resume to Medical hiring agencies. WHAT else can I do???

JustBeachyNurse, RN

Specializes in Complex pediatrics turned LTC/subacute geriatrics. Has 11 years experience.

Look at other boroughs? Did you try LTC, subacute, rehab? With the excess of RNs in NYC many employers have the luxury of hiring RNs to fulfill traditional LPN roles at LPN pay rates such as LTC.

Philly_LPN_Girl, LPN

Has 5 years experience.

I was class valedictorian as well but when looking for a job as a new grad, all of that stuff goes out of the window experience is what you will need. Try nursing agencies. I went on Google and found a ton and just picked up 2 more jobs

Use an agency, that will help you get your foot through the door. A lot of them have temp-perm contracts. Try Promed, Axion, White Glove (to name a few) or you can use Indeed.com. Also, go to Nursing conventions/job fairs. Best of luck!
