NYP New Grad Meet and Greet Nov. 24th

Hi everyone! I signed up for New York-Presbyterian's new grad meet and greet event scheduled for next week, Nov. 24th, and I have just received a confirmation email to inform me what time I'm scheduled to meet them. I know in previous meet and greet, people would receive a nurse battery test after the interview if they passed. For this meet and greet, they send you the career battery test after you've registered for the event. I thought maybe it's because they want to wean out some applicants before the meet and greet. My question is, did I pass this career battery test and that's why I'm able to attend this meet and greet, or is it really just a confirmation email stating that I can attend the event? I'm wondering if anyone else is thinking about this too. Any feedback would be appreciated.

What do you mean by a battery test? I went to their meet and greet before. I signed up online and after a few weeks I got an email with a scheduled date and time. I dont recall any test. Be confident and sell yourself well when you go. I had a group interview with other applicants and the recruiter asked us each 2-3 questions before time was up. Good luck!

Hi Daebak,

Thank you for the tips! I've heard from previous meet and greets that if the recruiter is considering you, they would send "career battery test" after the interview. However, the meet and greet is a little different this time. After we registered, NYP automatically sends us the battery test and we must fill it out before the meet and greet. I was just wondering if they did that to filter out people. And because I got the email about the invite, I was wondering if it's because I passed that test or because I signed up.

I missed the sign up for the event D:

Oh I guess, I didn't get the battery test because I didn't make it that far in the competition. I understand what you mean now after reading the May thread. I think its a filter so it must have changed since last time. Anyways I think it's a good thing you got it.

Hi Wayfinder,

Don't worry, they might have another meet and greet early next year again. Just keep checking the website! I didn't think they would have another one for November, but they did. Don't give up!

Hi Daebak,

Thank you for the feedback! I wish you the best of luck with your nursing career. May you find the job you're looking for :)

I don't interview well in groups. It brings me out of focus for what I want to say.

And man did they try to get us out asap.

Where did you guys find the sign up for the event? Is it on their new grads page under 'new grad event dates'? Thanks!

Goat boy you are sure right about that...I really was not expecting that

I was lucky that my table only had 3 other people. I actually got 2 whole minutes to sell myself to them. Good times..... Now imagine the guys who had 7 people on the table.

Hi dee789,

Yea the event was found on the career website where you can see what events they have coming up. They posted the event on October 23rd and they gave you until November 12th to sign up I believe. I hope the next one will come again soon for those who missed it.

What were all of your scheduled times? How did you all think of it? I was scheduled for 9:35 AM. They really stick to the 20 minute schedule. I had a table of 5, including myself and we basically had about 1 minute to talk about ourselves. Someone kept rambling on at my table and probably spent 2 minutes talking, but the nurse recruiter looked tired already. They said 700 people were making it to the meet and greet, so I don't know if I have a shot at this. It was definitely hard to stand out in a group interview with only about 1 minute to speak. I wish all of us the best of luck! Hopefully we proceed onto the next interview. If anyone has received an email from them, whether it's acceptance or rejection, I'd definitely like to know!

Thanks! I will keep my eye out for the next one.

I attended, I wasn't expecting it to be international or that hundreds of people were applying for the same program but I'm not surprised considering its Nyp...I hope we get word soon of our status in the process

NYP for some reason recruits new grads from out of state ( I do not mean NJ Or CT...i mean like far out of state like Ohio, Virginia, PA, Indiana, etc) and i guess International ones too as per the above post and most often, hires them. I mean why make them travel and spend on plane ticket if they arent getting the job? Its crazy b/c NYC has plenty of experienced RNs and local new grads that need jobs so why invest in out of state new grads...there is NO nursing shortage in NYC to need to bring new grads from out of the state and out of the country.

The issue with International is it takes a long time to get the visa that allows them to live and work in the US.

Does anyone know if NYP gives preference to internal applicants?

Hi NYCGuy86,

Yea I heard NYP gives preference to internal applicants, but still don't give up even if you don't know anyone from NYP!

Thanks. I'm actually a nursing student, and literally just got the call after I wrote that for a job as a nursing attendant there. :)

Just wondering (sorry for the derail), does NYP hire new grads into specialties like critical care, ED, OR, step downs, etc., or just into med/surg? I know many big hospital systems have new grad residencies and have like critical care/ED/OR/maternity residencies, but the NYP website doesn't really have much info on specifics...
