    Bellevue Hospital Psychiatric Unit

    Thanks for the response. How is it working as a psych nurse in a govt hospital such as bellevue?
  2. Hi all. I was just wondering if there are any nurses here who work at Bellevue Psych unit. I just got a call for an interview for a psych RN position next week. I work as an OR nurse at a surgery center and the pay is really low. I am hesitant because I don't know if Psych is the right department for me. I have only been a nurse for 3 mos and just started the OR exp few months ago. I really like it, it's just that the pay is very low. thanks all for the insights.
  3. Thank you all for your quick responses. I am a BSN graduate. I only have a clerical experience for a couple of years. Aside from that, no other experience or volunteer works. When the HR called me I was so excited, but before the our conversation ended she told me the offer, my heart literally just sank - crushed. My friend who is a surg tech earns 28/hr. This is just, I do not know, sad. Thing is, 2 weeks ago I applied to this hospital where I have connections (worked there for 2 years as a clerk) - gave my resume to the head nurse. But I have not heard from her for 2 weeks and I just became impatient. Plus that small outpatient clinic where I got hired - is affiliated to the hospital where I used to work. I may be burning bridges here, indeed.

    I am so tired of applying to hospitals

    What MsRNny said, Just Hang in there. I have been applying for just 2weeks but becoming impatient already. Now, I feel terrible for complaining. I guess my advice is to just keep trying and don't give up. I have just received an offer at a small outpatient surgery clinic but I got a really low offer (25/hr) since i do not have any experience. Should I be grateful to receive an offer, I probably should.
  5. Hi all. I need some advice. For the past 2 weeks, I have been sending out applications online, and have attended a job fair (but realized it was a waste of time). Anywho, I have not heard from the big hospitals around Manhattan, Queens, Bklyn, Bronx. I applied to this small outpatient surgery center in Queens and I got a call-back. I had an interview with the HR and got a second interview with the admin. I got an offer as a pre-op nurse, full time position (7-3 no weekends), they offered $25/hr since I don't have any experience and they are willing to train me. My friend who got a job offer last month at a certain hospital in the bronx earns 36/hr. I am supposed to finish all the paperworks (medical, references, etc) this week as per HR and might start the job on Monday. My question is: if you were in my shoes, would you accept/turn down the offer? I have been looking for a job for 2 weeks now (which is not long I realized). My friend told me to be patient and not settle for less - but I do not know what to do. I guess I need to hear more advice regarding this. Anyone been to a similar situation or has an advice in mind? Thank you so much for your time reading. JJ

    CGFNS-CVS New York process ?

    Yup I sent it together with my application including the the transcript authorization and validation. I called cgfns a while ago and the lady said they will be the one to send a request to my school just like what you mentioned. Hopefully they will update my status soon! Reading all these posts about application getting delayed makes me anxious.

    CGFNS-CVS New York process ?

    Hello future USRNs! Here is my status. I mailed my application on the last week of may including the "signed notarized application". How come my application has been received but the signed notarized application is still waiting to be received? Also: I am going to my school's registrar tomorrow to give them the "Request for Academic Records/Transcripts" form. I believe that is the TRANSCRIPT VALIDATION FORM but what is the TRANSCRIPT AUTHORIZATION FORM? I sent my application online and had no idea that I could give the form to my school. I think and I hope this will make the process a bit faster.
