Fresenius, what are my chances ? Please help!!

Posted

Hey everyone!

I recently applied to Fresenius Kidney Care in the South Florida area. I'm a new graduate BSN (graduated in May) and am now licensed. I have no previous healthcare experience though. Do I have a chance of actually hearing back from a recruiter? I find the job market for nurses in South Florida to be competitive. Also, if anyone knows any Fresenius recruiters in the South Florida area that would help a lot. Thanks so much!

I have heard some locations are willing to hire and train new grads without any experience. Just keep applying to multiple locations that are close (er) to you and I'm sure if they are in need for staffing they will reach out and be willing to train you.

Keep us posted, and wish you luck!

Are you familiar with current kidney and dialysis care? Maybe you have done this but always look up information on the company and type of patient seen.

Have some talking points available and some questions too! Best wishes and luck!

Thank you! I applied about two weeks ago and a recruiter has not yet reached out so I'm still waiting on that part. But I will deff remember this!

It is probably something you should do now prior to the recruiter contacting you in case they ask you more than the generic questions when they call.

I can say from experience the hiring process was pretty slow. I think it was about 2-3 weeks after submitting my application that I heard from a recruiter, that was in November. I had a couple of phone interviews and then progressed to an in person interview with the clinic manager in December. I was offered a position shortly after the in person interview but due to their onboarding schedule with training classes and a need/desire to give my at that time current employer a decent notice I couldn't start for at least a month. So we decided tentatively on a February start date, then something happened on their end where that didn't work so I didn't actually start until March.

The recruiter was pretty good at keeping in contact with me throughout the process and encouraged me to contact her as well with any questions/concerns but it was about a 4 month process from application submission to start date.
