    Banner New Grad Experience

    Thanks for that info! One of the new grads in my cohort at HonorHealth was in OR but had previous OR tech experience, I think. I'm still in my first year and considering applying to Banner New Grad for OR specifically.

    Moving to PHX, Hospitals/Recommendations/Tips

    One of my classmates had been a volunteer and then a tech there while in school, but the other two had zero healthcare experience.
  5. I am still considering Gateway's STORN program for the spring :) I did go to the HonorHealth clinical open house events last week at JCL and DV and learned they will probably be posting peri-op 101 positions late this year or early next year. I was told these positions are very competitive with 30+ apps per posting.They will post one per hospital "if the budget allows". One of the directors I talked to was familiar with Gateway's program and had some positive things to say. The other had never heard of it.

    Have you heard of anyone being able to go into surgery as a new grad?

    Phoenix Children's has new grad positions open right now :) Keep checking back after you graduate in the spring. Some of my classmates were hired there as new grads early this year Open Postion - Clinical Nurse - Career Opportunities @ Phoenix Children's Hospital

    Mayo Clinic New Grad Oct 2017

    It looks like it opened yesterday on the 17th :) Hope you get this!
  9. Has anyone taken the Surgical Technology for the Operating Room Nurse course offered at Gateway Community College? From what I understand it's a semester of classes followed by a semester of clinicals. I'm considering enrolling for Spring 2018. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the cost vs. applying to OR positions and hoping for adequate training/orientation. Someone who works in the program told me that it's not unusual for students to be hired while doing their clinicals in the program. I'm med surg tele now but would like to transition to OR in the next year. Thanks in advance for any answers or guidance!
  10. So, no group work since everyone's on their own schedule? Do you still have to post to ongoing discussion boards? And how does the capstone course work for this program? Thanks for any additional information you can offer!

    Honor Health New Grad Orientation

    Congrats and good luck in your interview! I can't remember what department she said, but it was at Osborn.

    Honor Health New Grad Orientation

    Apply to any new grad RN position posted and you're included in the next cohort after your hire date. The new grad postings seem to come and go quickly so check every day or every other day at least, and don't give up if you're not getting any responses. A friend from school just got an interview finally and said she's applied for every new grad position that popped up since she got her license in Jan.

    CEP - Immunizations?

    When I started, it was way more expensive to go through Walgreens or CVS. I used requestatest.com and went to a draw site near my house. They're currently running a special for $139 using LabCorp or $149 using Quest for the panel that includes MMR, hep B, and varicella. Immunity Panel | Prenatal and Employment Testing

    Honor Health New Grad Orientation

    I did all my clinicals but peds at HonorHealth locations. I ended up applying to a med-surg tele floor where I had a good experience but in my RN residency classes I'm with new grads who got hired into ICU, CVICU, neuro ICU, PCCU, cardiac rehab, med-surg oncology, DTU, might have heard someone say L&D. Plenty of specialties represented and definitely a mix of associates and BSNs :)

    Honor Health New Grad Orientation

    I'm in HonorHealth's RN Residency Program now for new grads :) It includes two half days of initial clinical orientation (along with two half days plus another full day of EMR training) at the NSSC near Deer Valley. Then 10 half day classes (lecture, interactive exercises and sim scenarios with mannequins) spread out over approximately six months at the education center near Shea. Two assigned nurse educators monitor your progress and check in with you on your unit over the first year. I didn't know ANYTHING about it through my application, interview, or new hire process though! No one mentioned it and there was nothing about it on the website or new grad job postings. I learned about it when my supervisor emailed my schedule for the first five weeks and there were RN residency classes listed. I called to find out when and where and she said I would find out about it at orientation. Apparently HonorHealth used to have this but stopped. It was restarted last year I think and they're in cohort 10 of the current program. It feels very organized and supportive so far. Not sure why it's so super secret Hope that helps!
