    I interviewed with Abrazo this past week and was told their program starts on sept 24. I'm interviewing with Banner this week and someone I know was offered a job already and they start the first week of october.

    Thanks! Do you know if that person was offered the job AT the Banner interview? How did your Abrazo interview go? Congrats on your two interviews!!

    My husband is going to graduate in December and he has been looking for new grad jobs in that area (we live in Kansas now). Can anyone tell me more about these new grad programs??? Is there somewhere online where I can find information? Thank you so much!!!

    Hi Hawk22. You can check the career section of hospital websites. Some programs I know of are at Scottsdale Healthcare, Banner Health, Abrazo Health Care, and Mayo Clinic. I'm sure others can add to this list! Best of luck to you both!

    Does anyone have any input on the new grad programs offered in the Phoenix area? It seems like there's such limited information, and I am unable to find posts specifically about the programs, such as what they're like to participate in and how beneficial the programs are. It would be good to know the success rates, too. Are there any graduates of these programs out there?

    Hi honeyortar, any updates on your end? I did ask a few questions, but I'm not sure that you've seen my posts. Thx!

    I don't know when they were offered the job. Another acquaintance was offered a Banner new grad position too. I think my Abrazo interview went okay, still waiting to hear back though!

    Hi honeyortar! It would be interesting to know the timeline for hiring. Have you had your Banner interview yet?

    i applied for a banner new grad position last friday (the 14th) and interviewed today. they said they're expecting to have outcomes by end of day tomorrow, so looks like the timeframe for that one was about a week.

    thanks, me too! keep applying to everything you see... i graduated last december and started working outpatient surgery at a clinic in march. it's great experience, but it's only PRN, so i've continued to look for a full time job. i have almost 400 applications out... you have to network! i was called for this interview because of meeting someone who happens to work there, and they liked me. you really have to tell EVERYONE you know that you are a RN looking for work. also, join professional organizations and go to the meetings. you really have to put yourself out there. good luck and keep up the hard work!
