    NurseKNYC,

    In my experience, it took them nearly a month to call me in for an interview. Just keep applying and waiting. They are Union, so their hiring is a bit different. It is not a process that gets done on an as needed basis, it gets done on a schedule.

    I was wondering when new grads finish school and when they are hired. Is it once a year or more than once? Thanks

    NurseKNYC What do you mean that they are union and that their hiring is different?

    No they didn't but I emailed them reference letters n transcripts when I sent them a thank you email. I called as well but that wasn't helpful. I got a few numbers from some of the other applicants n they haven't heard anything yet as well. They may have been looking for more experienced nurses since I did hear they just had an orientation on the 7th n a lot of new grads were hired in that round (August).

    That really sucks. I do know a lot of people that started in October and who will be starting in November. But they were still interviewing a lot more people after. The HR person that interviewed me told me that they hire new grads. He took copies of my license, registration, degree and my CPR class and I had to do the infection control test online as well as the med test.

    I was hired recently and am in preceptorship. The nurses are a part of NYSNA, so they hire once a month on a certain day. In my experience, they took nearly a month from when I applied online to receive a call from someone to come in for an interview. I interviewed and the interviewer instructed me to contact HR to proceed with the next steps. I did not hear anything from HR despite calling. The woman who initially called me in to interview instructed me to go down to HR and tell her who I interviewed with. So I went. When I met with her, she then sent me on an immediate interview with another nurse manager because I was seeking a full time position. From there, a week later I got the call from HR that I had the job. She asked which month I wanted to start, either the start date 3 weeks from that point, or the month after.

    I was a new grad, just graduated in May, obtained my license in July. They do hire new grads for all sorts of specialties as well, such as NICU, PICU, CTICU, etc.

    I did not meet with a male HR recruiter, and I did not complete an infection control nor med test prior to hiring. In fact, the med test is a part of orientation.

    I hope this gives a little help.
