    Binghamton grads?

    I graduated from Binghamton traditional RN track and It took me almost 8months-10months to get a job. Even if you go to school near NYC, it's very competitive at current job market. Going to school near NYC does not guarantee a job but it opens up your eyes to different hospital's environment and atmosphere. Honestly, I think it's all timing and luck. For example, I attended a job fair with my friend. She ended up getting an interview when I didn't. Binghamton BAT program is very hard to survive. Compared to NYU BAT program, Binghamton program is shorter. Even after becoming a RN, It's all based on how much effort you put in to get a job. I applied everyday to different hospitals and waited almost 2-3 weeks for each interviews. Also you need to think about how much debts you want to have when you graduate. Binghamton could be very lonely since there is nothing to do for leisure time and when you have a serious boyfriend in NYC. You just have to prioritize and count cons & pros. Hope I help you a bit. If you have more Qs you could PM me.

    NSLIJ Interview Tips and Advice

    If you are asked to fill out the references. I think you just have to wait for an actual offer from nurse recruiter. From my experience with NSLIJ recruiting process, it will take approximately a week to 2 weeks. Keep me updated! :)

    I messed up so bad

    I am a shy person when it comes to interview. I did horrible on my first interview because I was really nervous. I rambled during the interview and there was silent moments between questions. But that experience tremendously helped me to get over my fear and shyness and now i work in this amazing hospital. Just practice, practice, practice. Practice makes everything perfect! Most nurse recruiter or nurse manager wants to know if the candidates know why this unit, why nursing, why this hospital. Also is the candidate capable of providing patient care with great customer skill and right attitude. We all survived nursing school and passed the board. Be more confident!

    NYP New grad position

    You will either put on New grad waitlist or get an invitation to Battery Test
  11. It is a state law for a nurse to have a year of experience in order to work in EDs New grads start in EDs in NY are in the special fellowship or residency program
  12. I recommend you to take a part-time job in local hospital where you want to work in the future and at the same time take the pre-requisite classes in the community college. Then apply for Accelerated BSN Nursing program since you already have a degree.
