    Mount Sinai

    It took me a year and few months to get an actual nursing job. My first job was per diem with an agency at an adult daycare facility. Then came flu shots with mollen. Then finally i got an med-surg/tele job at an hospital in philly. It was a sad an depressive time. But i eventually got one. Get a job where u can..even if its not where u want

    Mount Sinai

    i have applied to Mount. Sinai since i first received my NY license back in 10. I just kept applying online 3 positions at time. like every 2months. i had gone to career fairs. the recruiter had said that she thought she saw my resume at some point from one of the fairs. but at that time i was fresh out of school looking for jobs everywhere i can think of. i am one year 2 months into med-surg/tele i had applied recently it wasnt for the position i wanted but... they called me one day for interview. i went.. interviewed and was hired same day!!! from what i can see.. i am going to love Mount sinai and cant wait to start!! i didnt not have the feeling i had when i started my first job.. i was desperate and needed to get my foot in door, even if it wasn't my dream job. Mount Sinai, NYC my dream job and dream city!! i cant wait to start. all i have to say.. is 1. Don't give up. if you get a job, but not where u want, go for it, get the experience 2. Go to career fairs that will have the hospital you want to work at 3. show that you are willing to go great lenghts that you want that job! i live in south jersey, originally from noth jersey. i went all the way to NYC to interview, that shows alot. 4. stop by recruitment office and personally hand them your resume so they can see you, put a face to your online resume. are you new RN?

    How long? how many?

    Ok.. im up early looking for jobs.. boredom is starting to get to me while job hunting but can't give up.. so this is for new grads looking for jobs. Post when you graduated, when you took boards, how long have you been on the job hunt, and how many interviews have you had? i did per diem work as an RN at an Adult Day Care facility, problem was it wasn't long enough. i guess some experience is better than none. Signed up with mollen immunization. Graduated in: 12/09 Passed NCLEX: Feb. 18th (1st try!) Job Hunt: 7 months and counting Interviews: 1 lousy interview!! 1! Boy keeping your head up high is hard!

    How many of you hate your job?

    ok.. im a new nurse.. and i have seen experienced nurses do lots and lots and lots of work. It is not an easy job... you have so much to deal with at once. the nurses i have come across work their asses off (excuse my language) everyday...not counting those lazy nurses (trust me i have noticed those too). i don't know if your a nurse or not.. but you shouldn't assume nursing as not being "that HARD" of a job unless you have placed yourself in a Rn's shoes.

    Hesi Exit Exam Help!

    honestly with the hesi it doesn't matter how much of the core material you know or how much you study. the key to passing hesi is getting used the question style. hesi is all about test taking. when you practice questions... try to pick the question apart. look for key words that would link to the answer.. use process of elimination. that helped me a lot. Get all the math questions correct.. Know how and when a nurse is allowed to delegate care to lpn and UAP.. Therapeutic communication was also big on hesi too. and most importantly DO NOT CHANGE YOUR ANSWER..
