    @RNcompassionate... any updates on the interview call? I actually got the call a week later and have an interview in 2 wks. Did you hear? Stay positive and they're gonna call!

    @humblenurse12... How was the interview process?? I hope you don't mind me asking, bc I'm a little nervous about the interview. Did they make an offer to you and did you have to take the pharm test?

    @concep1125-First, you interview with the nurse recruiter. She explained everything to me from the job description, to the pay, benefits, etc. Then, she asked behavioral interview question (which weren't bad). The pharm exam isn't until after you're hired. The next step is to interview with a unit manager. This is usually a few days after the interview with the nurse recruiter, however I live in Atlanta, so the nurse recruiter wanted to see if any of the unit managers could interview me that same day. Unfortunately, no one was available on such short notice.
    Now I'm playing the waiting game to interview with a unit manager. The nurse recruiter told me she hasn't been able to set up my interview yet because they've had some internal applicants graduate and they have to place them before they can offer something to me.

    Thank you so much for the heads up humblenurse12! I totally appreciate the insight. They emailed a list of things (reference list, resume) to have ready. I thought they hired based upon experience?

    That's probably the case for most positions but I applied for the new grad position.

    ^^^They only hire BSN's if you're a new grad. I'm not sure if they hire adn's with a lot of experience.

    ^^^Congrats Tern! what unit are you in?? How was the pharm exam? I'm taking mine next week and I'm nervous! Did you complete the online NLN practice exam? If so, was it helpful? I completed it, but it just gives your score at the end. I thought it would give a more complete breakdown of my score that included rationales for the answers. I'm going to be in the September orientation (hopefully, lol)

    Congrats again! I work there also and I'm so excited to start my nursing career at NYP!!

    Hey myRN85, Congrats to you also...I work in one of the ambulatory clinics (substance abuse & psych) I love it M-F 7-3 and no weekends...because I started as an LPD and took the pharm exam when I was first hired I was wave from taking it by nursing education...I'm so happy lol...from what I understand the pharm exam has changed since I took it 6 years ago I'm sure you will do fine remember we passed the boards....I hope your experience with HR was better than mine smh...I just checked my people soft at work and I saw the salary change will start on Sunday...
