Interview with NYPH as a new grad

  1. 0 Hi Everyone,

    I have an interview with New York Presbyterian Cornell in a week. I am also a new grad. In preparation for the interview, I have researched some behavioral questions that may be asked. BUT as a new grad, I do not think I have had the experience to answer certain behavioral questions. Yes, I have had clinical experiences but I dont think that is enough. I am very anxious, and I need this position, like any nurse would.

    Has anyone interviewed at NYP WC recently as a new grad or as an RN? What was it like? Were there many behavioral questions? Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello Hopeishere,

    Good Luck on your interview. What school did you graduate with your BSN and when? I'm also a new grad and haven't had any luck with getting an interview.

    Thanks. I graduated this May from college. I know, it's hard getting an interview. This is my first offer, and I have applied to many other hospitals in the NYC area, and get turned down instantly because I have no experience as an RN. I am putting a lot of effort to nail this interview. I just hope I get it. I guess all we can do is keep trying.

    Hoishere,

    Congrats on your interview! When did you apply for NYP? Is it for the residency? Do you have an externship experience. I applied for the August/Sept waitlist but have not heard anything

    Hey hope,

    It will be enough. They know you're a new grad. There will be lots of behavioral questions like I mentioned before, but you will be able to answer them based on your clinicals or any non-nursing jobs you have held. Don't know if I mentioned it before but I am a new grad too. Review your notes/journals form clinicals, have examples ready and go in confident!:redpinkhe

    Hey, Thanks. I applied in August & yes, I have externship experience at NYP. I believe everyone is automatically placed in the residency program at Cornell. I really hope I get this.

    ExpatHopeful - You last replies were very helpful. I followed your advise but yet, I am very worried. I researched some behavioral questions and found it hard to answer them all. I didn't know you were a new grads, I was actually hoping as a new grad, I wont be bombarded with all the behavioral questions. Are you at Cornell or Columbia? My interview is with Cornell. I am crossing my fingers, and Im trying to boost my confidence. Ah I really hope, hope I get this.

    To hopeishere:

    I am a New Grad Nurse as well, and I had my externship at NYP-WC too. My interview at NYP is next week, and I have spoken with somebody who already had their interview. It may be a lot of behavioral stuff, but nothing you won't be able to answer. What department was your externship in? I hear they favor NYP externs, so I would not worry.

    Hey NYPextern,

    Thanks for the reply - I read on their website that they do favor externs - but I want to be fully prepared. Interviewing is not my forte thus my anxiety. Did your friend get the job? Good Luck your interview.

    Everyone's input has been helpful and I really appreciate it.

    Hey All,
    I am in my junior yr in nursing school and I have an interview at NYP on 10.11.11 for the nursing attendant position. I was told i have to take an exam. Do you guys know what type of questions they will ask? How should I prepare for this interview?

    Thanks

    Your interview will most definitely be different than their RN interview.

    To hopeishere,

    How did your interview go? Yes, my friend did get the job. She was an extern last summer as well. What department did you interview for?

    Hey NYPextern,

    My Interview with the recruiter went very well actually. I was invited to interview with the nurse manager. I think that went well also. It's all just a waiting game for me now. I dont like waiting for this.

    I was asked behavioral questions on both interviews. I was asked a few behavioral questions with the recruiter - then she asked when I was free to meet with the PCD. Both my interviews were like 40 minutes. I dont know what to expect, I believe I performed well because I received good feedback from then as I answered the questions. But maybe this could be a generic response to interviewee's responses.

    But what about you, how was your interview. Which location are you interviewing for? And are you interviewing for the same floor you were an extern on?
