    They're just racists against ADN's haha just kidding. In all seriousness, I got through to the phone interview and was denied an interview with the unit manager. They didn't explain why but if I had to guess its because I only have an associates! Just happened to me again with another facility. They called me for an interview, then 2 hours later they had to cancel it cause the recruiter didn't realize nurses need bachelors! I was so upset but not surprised. I kinda expected it! I knew it was too good to be true! I'm not giving up!

    I don"t think so because I have my bachlors and they told me I need experience. I told them this is a new grad position, so they told me that all the position that u need experience, which I think it is crap.

    Hi guys,

    I took my battery test last monday and I haven't heard back from them yet. Any one else in the same situation? I'm getting a little bit nervous.

    hi guys! i was wondering if anyone knew how long you are considered a "new graduate" nurse at NYP. i graduated last may 2012, but have only been working as a RN for 8 months now in a high risk ante/high risk postpartum and GYN surgical floor. I am looking to make the big move to NYP but am not sure if I should still be applying to the new graduate posting or "regular" RN opportunities. Do you absolutely need 1 year to be considered? any information will be helpful thank you

    Six months. 12 max. Your 8 months work experience would likely disqualify you. Can you hang on to get the magic 12 months?

    Those who passed the battery test and got phone interviews, how did you answer some of the questions. They seemed so tricky to me and difficult.

    @jessie25 when I did my phone interview they only asked me two questions about why I want a career opportunity at nyp and why did I choose med surg as my top specialty. It wasn't that intense. So she told me the position available, the time and the campus and asked whether I was interested in it. She told me I will hear back in two weeks to schedule in person interview so I'm waiting. It seems like your interview seemed much intense?

    Thanks kiki1984, I didn't have a phone interview yet. I wish! I was referring to the questions on the battery test, sorry for the confusion. I hope you move on to in-person

    @jessie25 ohhhh yea the battery test was tricky but there is a way to answer them. I believe u have to do well on it in order to get an interview with them.

    ICU and critical care.
    - Hate to break it to you but most Patient Care Directors (They don't call them Nurse Managers there) in the ICUs will not accept new grads into ICUs. Unfortunately if you wanted to do ICU straight out of college you probably have a better chance trying a small community hospital depending on where you live. I got into ICU in less than 6 months, and then I spent 1.5 years in ICU before going to work at NYP. The application process is long and arduous. If you've taken the battery then you still have an interview with a Nurse Recruiter and then a PCD before you get offered anything. Then once you get offered a job you STILL have to take and pass a pharmacology exam which can be hard, especially if you are not good at Pharm or didn't pay attention to it. I had 2 years experience when I took it and there were drugs I never heard of or used before, and I JUST passed by 1 question. During my Critical Care training, I can't tell you how many people came in to take the Pharm test and failed. Oh and if you fail the pharm test, they rescind the job offer. Good luck, NYP is a great place to work, but it has it issues. So if you think the grass is greener on the other side you are seriously disillusioned. It can be pretty cutthroat at times, so be prepared. Oh and also NYP/Columbia is NYSNA and Cornell is not.
