Hi, my name is David. I'm moving to Tucson to work at UMC as a new grad. Currently I live in Prescott because I went to Yavapai College for nursing school
. Just wondering if there's anyone else out there that lives in Tucson or works at UMC. I don't really know what to expect because I've only been to Tucson once and that was for my interview (can't be picky when you're new). I just hope I fit into the unit well and do an exceptional job.

Hi I am currently in the position you were in (May 2008)...with UMC Tucson. Can you tell me more about your experience with them? Interview process; how long it took before you got a job offer? Thank you so much in advance for your response!!!
When I applied to work at UMC via the internet on their website, Nursing Human Resources called me back the next morning. I actually applied at 11pm and I got a call back at about 9am in the morning. When they called me they said the position had already been filled, but they told me to chose 3 floors to apply for. So they helped me pick 3 floors that I wanted to work on and then set up an interview for me. On the day of the interview I had a seperate interview for each floor I applied for with the unit managers all in one day. I was offered a job during my interview. So I accepted and glad I did.
I am very pleased with the hospital. I would recommend all new grads to start off at UMC for their first year. I have no regrets that I had to pick up and move to tucson for this job. I've learned a lot and still am learning. I work with a bunch of great nurses on 7 west.
I plan on eventually moving on to a different location and applying to be an ER nurse elsewhere when my year is up here, but UMC was certainly a good stepping stone to start off on.
