I received an offer from New York Methodist a few weeks ago, but passed on it for another organization so I can offer some up-to-date insight.
I graduated with a BSN two months ago and passed the NCLEX last month and was referred to HR by a friend who worked at NYM. HR called me to schedule an interview and e-mailed me an online data entry skill assessment which I passed. At my HR interview, the recruiter asked me the usual questions, ie. why nursing? why nym? strengths? They then gave me info about the salary and benefits which is about 80k plus NYSNA union benefits. The recruiter then set me up with an interview with the director of nursing for the following week.
That interview was much more in-depth as he was joined by a colleague. Besides the usual questions, there was some complex ones, such as how would you handle an angry family member. After my interview, they called the Nurse Manager of a unit that was hiring and sent me straight there where I met the staff and toured the unit. That interview was much more relaxed, just getting to know me more and describing the work environment. Everyone was very nice and encouraging. About a week later, I got a call from HR offering me the position.
