    Old Grad, No Experience! Odds of Landing a job in NYC?

    Hi Katie, I delivered and did 2 episiotomies, lots of sutures, lots of oxytocin drips and one twins delivery all on my own but the others that I mentioned were definitely assisting. It was a tertiary hospital with a flow of at least 600-700 patients per day and most of the cases were complicated (people there were a firm believer of home delivery with a neighbour who has a child!!). A L&D nurse doesn't deliver here in the States? What does one do? Assess, support, chart, oxytocins if necessary, etc? Sorry to ask but I just have no idea. I looked at the numbers of foreign educated and US educated pass percentage and had a huge difference but simply thought that was a matter of different curriculums, familiarity with the health-care system and trends ,etc. I never though the exams could be tougher. Thanks for the heads up! I will make sure I have prepared enough 🙂 I figured that and am grateful for it. Otherwise, CA needs the prospective candidate to have a SSN before they can even apply boards and I am still waiting for it. (Applied on 1st week Jan 2020- that's 7.5 months now. The sad part is, I sent an enquiry of progress last week and found out that my application was transferred to another office to shorten the processing time. Looked the so-called "shortened processing time" up and the wait times reflected are 3 months at least. Pheww!! I can only imagine what it is like to the sole bread-winners. You cannot work anywhere, let alone nursing and live in the US for around 11 months on your own!!). But I guess there is a silver lining. I have waited so long that I have reviewed 4 prep materials by now. And am positively hopeful about passing the NCLEX.

    Any nurses wished they had become doctors?

    Hi amoLucia, I am new to the country and was exploring options. I have a toddler and plan on another one in a couple of years. Then, I was thinking, school nursing would come handy to me. I know nothing except holidays and school hour works. Do you mind providing me why school nursing is not a good option in general (not taking into account my desire to be with my children.)?

    "Old New Grad" sounds yuck, haha, but that's what I have become and is a precise term indeed. Thank You for being appreciative, knowledgeable, transparent and motivating, all at the same time. I can tell you are a wonderful RN. I am taking your suggestions and have added them in my list of "Things to do to find a job". I would dive in a beat if I get a night-shift job in a L&D department. But the reality is I simply will have to take any that I get. Well, I just hope I get one and any. Stay Safe and thanks again 🙂

    Thought so and super-scared. I had to apply to NYC board as it did not need prior experience and also I could apply from outside the States. Thank You for your response 🙂 , appreciate it. An interesting point you have, I have heard a lot of people say COVID has increased the demand of Nurses. However, you say otherwise. May I know how is it creating problems? My hope was as others are saying COVID has brought a lot of demand, I might land one. I guess not, hmm 😞 **Graduated 2016, joined 2011.

    NCLEX-RN on Aug 3

    Hi there, I am an RN from Nepal (South-Asia). Graduated 2011. I moved countries and worked as an administrative officer in an eye surgeon's office. Never worked as an RN. I have applied for the NYC board and have my NCLEX August 3rd week. However, I live in the Bay Area, CA. I was hoping to know what are my chances of landing a job? I am very inclined to Ante-partum, L&D, Postpartum area as that is where I am confident. (During 2 months of exposure, did 40 deliveries independently, and 10 under supervision. Have seen Pre and Eclampsia, Breach Vaginal Delivery, Forceps and Vaccum Delivery, Still Birth, Abortions, PPH and all, you name it but I don't think SEEING these 5 yrs ago is going to boost up my chances. I know where I stand)Which is why, I am worried that after all these, I may not land any job at all. I would work and take any job I get that is if I get one. Any experiences with job hunt from foreign nurse graduated yrs ago and no experience? Any experience that is close would help. Thanks
