Living and working as a nurse in Brooklyn

As a travel nurse looking to explore a new city or a lifelong Brooklynite, this rapidly transforming community is a great place to live, work and play. Whether you’re looking to kick up your heels after a 12-hour shift in a waterfront condo or iconic Brownstone, craving to be part of a neighborhood that is under transformation or one that is a longstanding hot spot, Brooklyn has something to offer. (And, did we mention it’s only a train ride away from New York City?)

What can I do in Brooklyn when I’m not working?

Home to Coney Island, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Bridge Park, there is plenty to see and do in Brooklyn. Smorgasburg is a must-taste for foodies and a trip to the Brooklyn Flea also makes for a great excursion. And, don’t forget about walking along the Brooklyn Bridge and taking in views of both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Whether you’re living in Bushwick, Greenpoint, Williamsburg or Dumbo, to name a few, there’s always something new to experience!

What types of nursing opportunities are available in Brooklyn?

Brooklyn is home to large hospitals, smaller community hospitals, urgent care centers, private medical practices, dialysis centers, and more. As a nurse in Brooklyn, you have access to a wide-range of employment opportunities. Whether you have a passion for working with pediatric patients or thrive in the demanding climate of an emergency room, there is an opportunity to share your talents to make the lives of Brooklynites even better.

What shifts are available for Brooklyn nurses?

While many New York nurses prefer the 7a.m.-7p.m. shift, nursing jobs in Brooklyn come in all shapes and sizes. If you are working as a travel nurse in Brooklyn, you may work a short-term assignment with set hours at one facility. As a Brooklyn per diem nurse, you have the flexibility to pick up only the shifts that work best for your schedule. Even if you need to work around a school schedule for your child, part- or full-time job commitments, or other needs, there are still opportunities to work as a per diem nurse in Brooklyn.

Will there be ongoing demand for Brooklyn nurses?

There are more older adults (seniors) in Brooklyn than any other New York county. As this population continues to age, there will be an even greater need for skilled nurses who can care for them in hospitals, nursing homes and other critical care facilities. On the flip side, young families who are looking to stay close to Manhattan but need a bit more space often migrate to Brooklyn, which requires nurses who can meet the needs of both children and young adults.
