Novant New Grad Interview Day

Posted

I'm excited to go to the new grad interview day in October for Novant. Anyone else going? Is there anyone who works for Novant who has advice for me?

I can't wait!!! :yes:

Hey when and where is it? I did not know they were having one?

Go to their website. You send your resume, and they send you an invite if you match their criteria. It's not open to the public, you need an invite. It's October 16th.

Dang its for the Winston Market. I am in Charlotte

Well I'm signed up :) I had an interview with another hospital and if I am not offered a job there then off to Winston Salem I go.

I wish I could find more info about it. What departments are hiring, is there a time commitment, how long the residency is, when exactly the orientations start, will there be classes/simulations, etc. It would be nice to have some more information before walking in.

I also got an invitation and like you I would love more info...goodluck:)

If nothing has changed in the last two years, the commitment is one year (beginning once you're out if orientation), and the residency lasts 18 weeks. I believe they've added classes in since I did it, but I don't have any input in those.

Good luck to you both!

Any tips for the interview day, is it hard to get a personal interview

I'm not sure, they didn't do it that way when I came in, sorry!

Does anyone know what departments are hiring? What's the set up like, do we just get in line or fill out a survey? I've never been to a job fair and I don't have a clue how it works. I'm thinking of calling tomorrow to try to have some of my questions answered.

How did it go for you guys

Terrible. Not worth the trip.

For future nurses: They have tables with nurse managers from different units. You make a mad dash for the ones you want. You have about an hour and a half. I was able to see only 4 in that time. The most desired units (various ICU units, OB, and ER) have LONG lines. They don't look at your resume beforehand, so they spend most of the interview trying to read it and talk to you at the same time. If they're interested, they call you back for a second interview. I was called back for two interviews, but didn't get an offer.

I currently work for Novant. I was hired on a Med-Surg unit. The learning experience is awesome but beware. After 12 week orientation, you'll have 6 to 7 patients at all times. It can be exasperating.
