Does anyone have tips or advice for New Grad Nurses wanting to work in NYC in pediatrics or NICU? So far, the job search is super challenging in landing interviews.

I would say that if you have a BSN that you will be able to land a job in NYC but you might not be able to do NICU right away but maybe you would get a pediatric spot. Most places want you to have a one to two year experience of Med-Surg before going to specialized areas. It would give you a great basis to start from and usually once you are in the door at a hospital it is easier to transfer over to your desired specialty as current employees have the first shot for positions that open up before they are posted to non-employees. Good Luck in your search.
