Dignity Health System

  1. Hello everyone

    I have been reading through many of the AZ threads and have not been able to get much info on the Dignity Health System.I looked up their website and they are my favorite for all of the health care systems so far because I want to eventually become a CNM. I currently am a nursing student in Pittsburgh but plan to move to the Phoenix area right after graduation. I am sure the new hire/grad process will take me months before I actually secure a job but if anyone could give me more on the company that would insanely helpful

    ex: avg new grad salary, working conditions, benefits, hiring process, how to get in contact with a recruiter

    Hi! I graduated in December 2017, Nebraska and still have issues getting a position anywhere in Phoenix area. I am currently waiting for some answers back, but I would keep your eyes open for any New Grad position not just Dignity Health. It's very hard for New Grads here especially outside of the state. I also just got my ACLS, so I would recommend getting that. Dignity Health likes to see BLS as well as ACLS. Best of luck!

    Hi delician!
    I am also wanting to be a CNM, and found Dignity Health the best match for my personality! I'm always hearing from other nurses that they are an amazing organization to work for. The only Dignity Health facility that hires new graduate nurses is St. Josephs Hospital and Medical Center in downtown Phoenix. I suggest visiting the career section of their website multiple times a week to check for openings that don't require 1+ year of acute care experience. I have yet to see a specific "New Graduate RN" position open on their site, however I see a "New Nurse Residency" tab so they may post openings there later this year.

    Here's a few tips I've learned from researching the heck out of them:
    1). I know they like to hire people with previous experience at St. Joseph's, so I recommend volunteering for them in the meantime. That way you can get your foot in the door and also see if it's really where you want to work!
    2). New graduates start at $25.50 with yearly raises and amazing healthcare!
    3). Interview process involves submitting an online application, waiting about 2+ weeks, receiving a call from the unit manager to schedule an interview, and then interviewing on the unit with 2+ interviewers.

    Good luck with the rest of your schooling and future job search!

    Actually, Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert both hire new grads as well. Both within a residency program and without their residency program. They offer the residency program applications 2-3 times a year based on need. Getting a new grad job with them outside of the residency program is very difficult. That's where St Joes comes in. They hire new grad RNs outside of residency much more then chandler or mercy.

    I interviewed at chandler when I was a new grad.

    Oh, good to know! I was told during an interview at St. Joe's that they are the only ones who hire new graduates. Thanks for that information!

    Thanks guys for the information. I could've sworn that I saw on another form that they pay more than that, but I won't be picky.

    Dignity Health Las Vegas pays a lot more than the Phoenix locations apparently.
