    It seems like all roads say take it! The dollar less really isn't much in the long run. Being a new graduate RN I would have been ecstatic to work as a PCA in school at a place that could hire me as an RN. The job market is extremely brutal so if this is a place that you'd like to work at as an RN, I'd say take it. You'll make up that extra dollar and hour during the many months you (may) have a job as an RN before anyone else. That's just my two cents. But I say do what makes you happy

    Hi stephRN21621 and nurse597,

    Did you guys start orientation yet? If so, when did you start? I'm curious because I have applied to St. Francis as well.

    Thanks!

    I had an interview there today it was easy questions but the nurse recruiter overall energy was very "weak" . She didn't even asked my name and asked what your strength, weakness, why I want to work there ect. she said I will get another call in two weeks to have second interview with nurse manger and after that if we don't call you in a week assume you didn't get hire if you do you will hear with in a week .I am SBU BSN , got my license in Oct 2013, currently working in a school which doesn't count as experience . have applied everyyyyyyyywhere . just want to get hire already because I cant take it anymore. Can someone tell me about the second interview process. it would be much appreciate it ...

    I felt the same way about my interview even though I felt I answered the questions pretty well, but didn't receive much feedback neither. However, the recruiter didn't exactly tell me when I'd hear back from them. She told me they'd call me for a second interview once my reference check is complete. as of right now, I'm still waiting for all of my references to complete the survey for me, it's taking longer than expected, but I guess I'll call the recruiter once all my references are complete. Did you do the reference check yet?

    fingers crossed. Best of luck to both of us 😁

    @Ranik I've basically heard from other people that the second interview is also behavioral questions. In the meantime, It'd be nice if you send the recruiter a thank you letter. And then follow up in a week or two. I've heard that orientation won't start until April 13, and there's another one in June. Good luck

    she told me the two weeks ordeal because I asked .I had another interview @ stony brook where I waited for more than a month and then I decided to keep calling myself until they told me " sorry we hired another candidate" . here I have yet to write the thank you letter and yes my references are complete, i am not sure how my interview went especially with the time management question because as a school nurse i haven't really experience that but i had to tell her something . i wish i was more prepared. i felt like i was treated like a number and the interview was a formality because it was arranged after i called her and said i have been applying but never heard anything plus the system keeps telling me I cant apply for more jobs, so she said to come in for interview. let see if we hear anything . keep reminding the people about your reference. good luck to both of us. the wait is unbearable .

    Hello Ranik. Were you ever able to land the job at St. Francis. I am in the same boat as you. Working as a school nurse and desperately trying to take the leap to hospital nursing. I graduated in January of 2012, so I'm an even older new grad than you. If you got something, I'm hopeful I will be able to land something as well.
