Thanks for the reply! Right now I am trying to find temporary housing for October 15-mid November, since relocation assistance gets reimbursed after I start working, I cannot afford a deposit and first months rent yet. If you have any information like that I would be forever grateful! I will be making a trip to Rochester the week of August 13 to do my pre-employment physical and look for housing. I cannot wait to start!
Suejax---I just got your message, I cannot send a message because I have not posted the minimum amount of posts to be able to do that, so I will try to reach you this way. The interview at Mayo was a lot like every other interview that I have had, they asked all of the behavioral style questions as well as elaborate on them. For instance, "Tell me about a time.... What did you learn....How did that make you feel....etc." I highly suggest reading the "Mayo Interview Tips" document they have on their website. When is the interview and on what unit? Good luck!
I took mine yesterday and found out today that I passed. I had 75 questions, and half of my questions were SATA as well put in order. I also heard the same thing about getting the harder SATA questions meant you were doing well. I finished in a little over an hour. When I left, I cried and was sure that I had failed. The Pearson trick also worked for me. :-)
Great! Let me know how you're liking it so far after you begin! Maybe we can connect in the future :O)
The contract is actually 3 years now after the residency. I got accepted as a PACU resident but chose to accept an offer with the Mayo Clinic instead. In my interview I did mention my desire to attend grad school and I still got 1/3 spots, I think it helped.
I just scheduled mine for July 17th! I did the virtual ATI course and got the "Green light" to test. I also purchased the 2012-2013 Kaplan NCLEX-RN Strategies, Practice, and Review. This has been an amazing book so far, I highly recommend it. It's only about $20 at Barnes and Noble.
I am a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and I just accepted a position in the Gynecology Surgery unit at Rochester Methodist. I will be starting on October 22 and will be moving there alone. If anyone else is a new grad starting at Mayo please feel free to comment and hopefully we can make some connections before beginning our careers!!
