So, I graduated in May, took the nclex in july and as of today still can't find anything. I am also completing a BSN at Hunter and have a BS in another field so will be done by August. I am really starting to get discouraged though. I have applied to so many place. I had an interview at a children's psych facility a week ago which I never heard about and some other interviews like a month ago, but not much more than that. It seems like there is nothing available. I am starting to wonder why I went into this field in the first place.

NYC nursing is difficult in terms of job finding. I am experienced RN (2 years experience in hospital) and I am having a hard time transitioning to another area. Im currently working (postpartum, its nice but i feel I have reached the limit of my learning already and I want something in the critical care areas and have transferable skills from my current position) but im finding even new grads have an easier time getting hired. The job market here is terrible ...if you dont get hired as a new grad in an area of nursing you really want...good luck finding a job in that area later.
