NYC New Grad?

I'll be graduating in 2020 with my BSN from Simmons College in Boston, Mass.

I'm wondering what the job scene is like in NYC for new grads.. Is it possible for a new-grad (from out of state w/o connections) to score a job in one of the bigger hospitals?

I have experience in some of the big hospitals here (for clinical and PCA jobs) but I'm not sure that's going to help me much.

Any tips to help me in my future job search would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The market is very very tight for new grads, even ones who go to schools in NYC. You really need to have a connection or something big that sets you apart from other applicants. I know it's probably not what you want to hear, but I would do a year somewhere else first and then pursue a job in NYC.
