University of AZ Tucson New Grad position

  1. Hey all,Did anyone apply for this position? I think they only had it up for a little bit and now you cannot even access job description. My status says "under consideration" but have not heard from them yet.

    It will take some time to "consider" all 23,000 applicants.

    Take a number, grab a drink, and get comfortable.

    Wow, that's a pretty incredible number. I guess I thought things would move sooner since I believe the posting said interviews would be starting soon, if not now. Thanks for the reality check.

    Are you serious? That's an insane number! Did someone tell you that?

    I hope you got the job! I was so worried I wouldn't get into any of the new grad programs in Tucson but was called in last week for an interview. I was brought in for a second interview and then offered the position soon after! I'm meeting with the HR department next week to sign everything and make it official!!!

    Aww, congratulations, alovelyRN! No, I never got a call. I imagine that is because I do not have an AZ license and I live in New Jersey, but I am interested in relocating out there. I'm very interested in migrant health. Oh well. I should probably get a compact state license and then that would help me. I have to say I am a little disappointed (I would have flown out to interview and applied for a license asap!) but oh well. CONGRATS!

    Can anyone confirm that the new grad salary is $23/hr?

    It's $24.50/hr for all new grads to start plus 15% if you work nights ($28.17/hr).

    Thank you so much; I work there as a tech and was wondering! Good luck at work! If you have any questions, PM me!

    After completing the new grad orientation, do you get a raise? After a year? How long does it stay at $24.50? Also, is that good for Arizona new grad pay? I'm just wondering about how fast I can pay off school loans!

    that's about average. banner starts new grads out around 25, scottsdale is around 26. not sure about the dignity system. mayo starts new grads out at a whopping 20.xx (ouch). if you want to make more, work nights and pick up extra shifts!

    From my understanding, there are no real raises this year. But if you go up the clinical ladder to clinical nurse II (12-18 months later?), you can get paid more. I think clinical staff nurse IIs are hired at $28-29 an hour.
