NYU Medical Center Nurse Residency Program

  1. 0
    Hi,

    Are there any recent grads in this program now who can share their opinions and experience at NYU Med? I am graduating this DEC and am applying to the graduate nurse residency program for January. Is it really as fantastic as NYU Med makes it sound?

    Also, how many RNs do they batch hire? Is it hard to get into a specialized unit?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Good question? What is their interview process like from submitting the application to the final accceptance?

    I don't work for NYU Med, but I did go through their new grad interview process several weeks ago. First, you are screened to see if you meet the qualifications for an interview (BSN, 3.5 GPA, no C's in science pre-req courses) and depending on availability, are scheduled to attend their Nurse Residency Pre-Interview Day. You and several other applicants meet up in a group, and are led to a room to take a dosage calculation exam. Afterwards, the program itself and benefits are discussed with you by a recruiter, and you are then asked what your unit preference is. Afterwards, if they can accommodate a second interview with a nurse manager of your preferred unit that day, they will, depending on availability. If not, they will call and notify you if there is a possible vacancy and interview. I know that my classmates though had mixed experiences. Some people stayed all day and interviewed with a nurse recruiter one-on-one, but I have another classmate who did not attend and instead had a phone interview.

    I was fortunate that the the nurse manager of my preferred unit had an interview opening, and I was able to interview with her just a few days later. The nurse manager interviews you and then will tell the recruiter whether or not they recommend you for the position. Although I was recommended, I found that I was placed on their new hire wait list. NYU will not be hiring from Sep to Dec of this year because they are instituting a new EMR system. Resources will be going towards training people on how to use the new EMR system and unfortunately, will not be able to train new grads. However, they will be hiring people again starting next January. Since they will not hire people after August, they have been trying to over-hire these past several months. If they cannot fit you into their last orientation, they may or may not place you on their wait list for January.

    I do not know about the difficulty level on getting into a specialized unit but I have a few friends that work on specialty floors and interviewing for those units was dependent on availability. I have some friends who love working at NYU and others who don't. As it is for many hospitals, some floors are better than others. I have heard that they do have a high turnover rate though. For nurses who are applying and who have more experience, I don't know if the interview process would be the same but I imagine it would be similar (first interviewing with a nurse recruiter and then a nurse manager). I would say though that my tip for people who are interviewing or who would like to get an interview is to definitely follow up with the recruiters on your status and let them know how interested you are in working for them. Following up with them goes a long way!

    Hi flee43!

    Congratulations on your NYU Langone residency! You made it through the crucial steps and I'm sure you will get
    a position as soon they start hiring again!
    I'm starting the process myself and I was wondering if you could give me any pointers on the pharm exam?
    I get really anxious sometimes and I wanted to know if there are any particular math or meds questions I should review beforehand.

    Thank you in advance for all your help and I wish you the best of luck!

    Congrats on getting started! There is only (to my knowledge) a dosage calculation exam. It should be 15 questions and you must get 100%. The questions are pretty straight-forward though and they will give you a study sheet when they schedule your interview. If you had any dosage calc practice tests in school, review those and you'll be fine. No worries though if you happen to miss a question! They just tell you to take an extra peek at the wrong answer and let you correct it. I haven't heard of a pharm test though from friends who are already working there (if I'm wrong, sorry about that!) Have you already started the interview process?

    Thanks for the well wishes! It would have been nice to work there but I ended up taking a job in CA. Hopefully I can work there some day in the future!

    Thank you so much for the heads up flee43!
    How do you like California? Is the job market good over there?
    I have just started the application process, so I'm getting the documents together etc. so I'm also trying to figure out where do I want to be, city wise and hospital wise. I'm not being picky or anything, but I just want to figure out if I want to stay in NYC or not!

    You're welcome! I'm originally from CA but actually went to NY for nursing school (moved back after I graduated). To be honest, the job market in CA is pretty awful. While the job market is tough everywhere, I personally think that CA is definitely a different beast!

    I moved back home after I finished school, but I know figuring out where you want to be is definitely a tough decision. With the tough job market right now though, I think that being flexible about where you want to work or live will definitely pay off.

    Good luck with the job search! Feel free to PM me if you have anymore questions

    How long after the two interviews do they make an offer or let you know if they want you?

    I think that with each person, the offer time may vary (especially since they have a hiring freeze right now). With NYULMC, the best way to get an update on your status is to contact the recruiter. Just let them know who you interviewed with, on what floor, and that you would like to follow up on your status. The recruiters are fairly good with emails and should get back to you in a timely manner. If you have already gone through the interview process Freestyle Pete, congratulations!

    Thanks I called them yesterday because I had my second interview with the OR Director on September 4. She said I would hear pretty quick. I called the Nurse Recruiter yesterday morning and she said they are still in the discission making process. The orientation is supppose to start Oct. 8th. I didn't hear anything about a hiring freeze. Thanks for your help Flee43.
