Hey guys! Any applicants with impending interviews or recent offers with The Johns Hopkins Hospital? I've got an interview coming up and would love to open a dialogue with anyone else who's in a similar position. If anyone can share any information regarding the interview, shared time, culture at JHH, etc that'd be great even from folks that completed their clinical or externship rotations there. Any current nurse residents at JHH also feel free to chime in please :) I'm applying from San Diego and I graduate in May. Good luck to everyone!

Hi! I got an email this morning offering me an interview with JHH, but I have to pick 3 weeks that work best with my schedule to fly out and interview. I am applying from Hawaii, so this would be a huge move. I could also benefit from anyone else's experience or tips! Also, I graduate with my BSN in May 2018.

Hey! I believe we were in the same post about Mayo Clinic! I also have an interview at JHH and it is in the NICU. My interview day will be my first day in Baltimore, so I am looking forward to future posts in this thread. I graduate with my BSN in May 2018.

Hi! Congratulations to all of you who have interviews at Hopkins. I have a question about the application process. If I want to pursue the PEDS track, am I correct that I have to wait for an open peds position to be posted that says New Graduate? Thanks!

Thank you :) I believe you do have to wait for a new graduate posting that's specific to Peds. From what i've seen each unit has been posting individually

Just had my interview at JHH this past Friday in the CVSICU, and I felt it went really well. Here's a quick play by play...

0830 - Arrived at the nurse recruitment office at 0830, and there were a few other interviewees there for other units. We gave our original letters of recommendation as well as transcripts and copies of BLS card. The nurse recruitment office made copies into one packet so that we can give the packet to the nurse manager during our 1-on-1 interview. Nurse recruitment office kept the original docs. We were then given a few minutes to relax in the nurse recruitment office (everyone was really nice and offered coffee, tea, water, etc until our 0900 interview appt). We were all given instructions on how to find our prospective units and given a map.

0900 - Arrived on the unit and waited a few minutes for the nurse manager to come out. I was greeted nicely and she escorted me to her office where the interview took place. The interview was very conversational and all of the questions were behavioral based. No clinical scenario questions were asked during my interview (not sure about others). It seemed to be a standardized set of questions. This interview for me lasted 1.5 hours. It was very easy going and she made me feel comfortable! Probably 10-15 questions or so. After the interview, she had me change into my scrubs for the "share time" part of the interview.

1030-1230 - She introduced me to several staff members of the unit and even talked to them about my EBP project, my interests, and a little bit of my background. I felt very comfortable by the time she introduced me to the nurse I would be shadowing for a couple hours. I was able to witness a discharge, an admission, as well as talk to and meet several other nurses on the floor. I was surprised by how many recent grads there were given the fact that this unit has such a high acuity. I was able to get a lot of information from my nurse about living in Baltimore, working at Hopkins, working for that particular unit, what the culture was like, how nurses viewed the nurse manager, etc. I found all of this super helpful especially as someone who is an out-of-state candidate.

1230-1300 - Break

1300-1430 - Went over benefits and salary as a group and then individually with a nurse recruiter. I was surprised to see that they counted my prior experience as a health care administrator to increase my potential salary. Keep in mind JHH is salary (not hourly) and you get paid the same every 2 weeks. Basically you work 240 hours over a 6 week period to average 40 hours per week for the year. This is something different I've never seen before.

Feel free to ask me any other questions you may have. Good luck to the rest of you who are interviewing!

Wow! Thanks for the rundown of events during your day. It seems like it was thoroughly informative and helpful. That salary is also something that I have never heard of before. Again, thank you for the information and best of luck! I hope you get the unit that you want!

Has anyone else gotten a date where they can come in for an interview? I sent the 3 months of dates they asked for, but I haven't heard anything back yet. I am from out of state.

After giving them dates I would be available for, they took about a week to respond to give me my date. You could also call their nurse recruitment office and speak with your recruiter to speed things up.
