    I was initially contacted on July 10th. I had one phone interview July 12th.i was called by a nurse recruiter from Hillcrest 2 weeks ago. I finally have an interview scheduled for next Tuesday. Most of my classmates already have jobs at Cleveland Clinic because they either worked there as a HUC or PCNA.

    Hey llulaby, I am just not allowed to send any PM yet,. This was for the new grad RN position, and the interview questions were very general. Good luck.

    Did any of you go the hiring event? I hadn't recieved any interviews after my inital phone interview. I went to the hiring even and I now have an interview with the PICU manager. I'm so excited. This is really my dream job. I hope the search is going well for all of you. Lullaby have you had any interviews in the Cleveland area? I also can't PM yet.

    that's great hillarie!! how did the second interview go? i hope you got the job!!

    my temporary ohio license FINALLY just came through, so i now have a phone interview lined up for next week with the clinic. can you tell me how your phone interview was and what kinds of things they asked? it sounds like a lot of people have had an initial phone interview but then no follow up with a nurse manager which is what i'm worried about. hopefully all goes well though, it's such a dream of mine to work for the cleveland clinic!

    I was offered a job but had it rescinded because I could not pass the physical capability assessment. I was cleared for light duty. I am older than most new grads (this is my second career change in life). The nurse recruiter and nurse manager are giving me 90 days to come back and reapply.

    I'm sorry to hear that Kayemmejay. What did they have you do for the physical test? I was offered the PICU position. I so excited. I'm in pretty good shape, but I heard that the physical test is hard. Do what you can to get in good cardio shape. Start walking and doing weights. Even if it is light.
    As long as I pass they physical test I'm in. I can't wait to start. I also got a job at Menorah Park. I'm not sure if I should take it and just concentrate on the PICU.

    There is nothing to scared of about the physical. You just sit on the chair and push n pull five times each side using ur arms and legs. 2 sets total. It shows how forcefully you can pull n push using isokinetic machine. Takes about 15 min( although the screen will say it will take about 40 min) Do the best to push n pull!! You can google or youtube to see the image. biodex / isokinetic dynamometer. They let u warm up befo you start. If you can normally lift and kick, you will be alright. Good luck
