Piedmont Henry ED RN Residency 2017

  1. Hey All,

    I'm starting the March 2017 program and I'm hoping to find others who are currently waiting to start, already in, or whom already been through their program! I've been relaxing and waiting for two months, but I'm so anxious to start working as a Registered Nurse. Hope to hear some great tips and advice for getting through the first year as a new grad in the Emergency Department.

    Hi! What was the interview for the ER like? I have my phone interview next week and am pretty nervous about what they'll ask.

    Hi southernnurse68,

    For the phone interview I was asked for my top three areas to work and to name a time where I had a difficult time with a coworker and how I resolved it. Strengths and weaknesses. Why do I want to work in the ED.

    For the interview with manager and director I was mainly asked how often did I show up late or call out. The rest of the time I asked majority of the questions. Then I was given a tour of the department.

    Thanks for the reply! Were you given a clinical scenario and have to talk about what you would assess and expected orders as part of your interview with the manager and director? Also, what was the base pay you were offered? I've seen $22 or $23 for the Atlanta location but I was wondering if it was different for the other locations.

    Congrats NurseMika for getting the job offer!!! I applied to the July announcement (Atlanta & Fayetteville) the first week of February but have noticed on a different thread nobody has been contacted for those locations. Do either you remember if the job announcement was open for 30 days, which could explain the delay in getting contacted? I applied to Piedmont, Emory and WellStar, which I was contacted by three days later by Emory and WellStar to set up interviews.

    It it is my dream to work for Piedmont, so praying I'll get an interview that leads to a job offer. I appreciate any insight you can provide because I'll be relocating from New Irleans in May immediately after graduating. Thanks for any insight.

    What was your interview for the ED like? I have an interview at Piedmont Fayette next week for ED residency and am curious as to what to expect!

    Hey! For my interview they asked all behavioral questions. Such as why the ED, tell me about a time you had a difficult patient, and etc. However, I have heard that for some interviews they ask clinical scenario questions. Such as how would you handle a stroke patient using the nursing process. So, I would be prepared for those type of questions too just in case they may ask. Probably look up some case studies on stroke, DVT, DKA, and etc. Even if they don't ask you those type of questions its better to be on the safe side, so if they were to ask you won't stumble on it. Good luck on your interview! I'm sure you will do great. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks so much for the reply! What other types of behavioral questions did they ask you if you don't mind me asking?

    They also, asked about how my prior experience as a PCT will help me as a nurse, what is the most difficult part of your job, describe a time you went above and beyond for a patient, and tell us about a time you used leadership skills. I think they asked a few more questions in addition to that, but those are ones I remember.

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate it to help me prepare for my interview. What was the starting rate for the ED and the differentials?
