    NYC Health + Hospitals new grad ED

    Hello! I recently got a job in the ED at a level 1 trauma center in the Bronx. It's part of NYC Health + Hospitals and there is a newly issued "NYC wide residency" in place. It isn't a year but it is 16 weeks. I start orientation this week and it seems there is a lot of confusion about how long we will actually be in the classroom for before heading to the unit. Anyone have any experience with NYC Health + Hospitals orientation?

    NYC New Grad - ED NYC Health + Hospitals

    Hello! I recently got a job in the ED at a level 1 trauma center in the Bronx. It's part of NYC Health + Hospitals and there is a newly issued "NYC wide residency" in place.

  3. Hello! I am a new graduate ADN on Long Island. It's a VERY hard area to break into as a new grad and especially as an ADN and NYC and Queens/Bklyn are even harder. I am already in a BSN program (I started the last semester of my ADN program) and I'll be done in 1 year but no luck getting a hospital interview yet, and I apply to new ones every day. I have landed 4 interviews and so far have gotten 2 offers, and the other 2 interviews are later this week. I know its hard to go from LTC or outpatient into a hospital, but these are my only options right now and it's better than no work at all. I would love to hear some thoughts on which of these jobs makes the most sense in terms of experience. Offer 1: Hemodialysis at an outpatient center. Offer 2: Clinic in a homeless shelter. (I am leaning toward this) Interview: Sub-acute rehab. Interview: Planned Parenthood. I don't want to wait too long to make a decision and end up losing offers. I do have some concerns, though. If I take the dialysis job, I'll be using acute skills (accessing sites, hanging lines, phleb, etc) but will I be pigeonholed into dialysis since it's such a specific specialty? If I take the homeless clinic (which is what I want) it's more like primary care and I won't be starting IVs but I will be drawing blood. The sub-acute rehab pays more but I know people have had a hard time getting into a hospital after that (at least here on LI). Planned Parenthood seems like it will be a really well rounded experience, clinic nursing, community health nursing AND periop/OR nursing. My only concern with this is the only hospitals here on LI are owned either by the Catholic Health Services of Long Island, Northwell Health, the state/county and Mt. Sinai. Will PP effect my chances of getting in if the hospital/health system doesn't believe in the type of care PP gives (abortions, etc)? Which bothers me because I do and I would love to have this job. Does any of this make sense or does anybody have any sage words of advice?

    Northwell Health 2019 Fellowship

    Does anyone have a working telephone number for HR / Talent Acquisition? I tried calling the number online but its all automated and I couldn't get to a real person.

    Northwell Health 2019 Fellowship

    If you don't mind, what are you credentials? BSN or ASN and new grad or experienced? I'm applying as a new grad so I don't know if I will get an interview if there are people with experience applying

    Northwell Health 2019 Fellowship

    Hi, which fellowships did you apply to? I applied to LIJ and Lenox Hill ED but haven't seen a status change, but they did take both job postings down today. How was the video and phone interview? I read on past forums the whole process took 3-4 weeks and after the video and phone interview they had an in person interview and then got the job offer by phone. Glad to see someone actually getting a call back. Hope I am that lucky! Good luck

    Touro College Brooklyn BSN Fall 2017

    Hi nursing.mk, My BS GPA isn't that high, honestly. But I have As in all pre-reqs except for one B. I got a 124 on the NLN. I believe it is rolling admissions? What is your BS GPA? I don't think Touro is that competitive when it comes it GPA because they don't have a minimum and they do take the NLN into account. A lot of students are coming from high school, too. Are you applying to the AAS/BS or just BS?
  8. Hi guys! I recently applied to the BSN program at Touro in Brooklyn. I searched on here for a threat for them but the most recent one is still from a few years ago. Does anyone have any information about the program? Are there any grads on here or anyone else that applied? I already have a BS Bio degree and I'm hoping I get accepted into their program, but I'm skeptical because there seems to be so little information on it. Thanks!
  9. Hi guys, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have been applying to almost every ABSN program in the LI-NYC area, and I'm not having much luck. My cumm. GPA is only a 2.8. However, I am an EMT-B and I do have clinical experience. My degree is a BS in Biology, and I have been taking classes since I graduated to make my GPA better, and have gotten only As and Bs. There were a ton of things going on in my life while I was away, and I have just been able to do much better now that I'm home and the stress of being 7 hours away isn't hindering me as a student anymore. I am still very nervous about getting in, as I have already gotten rejected from Molloy, Touro, and LIU. LIU is re-evaluating me right now. I only applied to NYU because they have no minimum GPA requirement, and have a history of accepting people with a lower GPA if they have other skills to offer. Has anyone gotten into NYU with a lower GPA than a 3.0? I met someone who said they were admitted with a 2.3 but they weren't inclined to give me any other information, so I am not sure about that. I'm really hoping that I get it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Nassau Community College Fall 2016

    Hi guys, I just took the teas and applied for Fall 2016. I heard that last year a lot of people with GPAs of 3.7 and higher didn't get in, and my GPA is only a 3.5. My TEAS score was in the 88 Percentile of the program (leavel: advanced) and I have a BS Biology already so I only have to take med micro. Anyone else in the same boat??
