Hey! Coming from a New to Practice Nurse here are some things to anticipate once you are contacted from the Nurse Recruiter/HR: 1) An e-mail from HR requesting undergraduate transcripts/2 letters of recommendation/maybe one other thing (can't remember?) 2) A reply e-mail with links to two tests that are to be taken on your own time @ home (one is med/surg, one is pharm - both were fairly easy) 3) If you pass the tests (I'm assuming you need to in order to move forward) you will be sent an e-mail that you have been selected for a N2P interview & given the time/date 4) You reply to the e-mail with your preferences of 3 units you wish to be interviewed for/work on..and any questions you may have 5) Arrive at your interview with your RN license, CPR cert, and finally interview with a panel of nurses (hopefully from the floors you selected..usually depends on the number of open positions on the floors you chose) 6) WAIT A LOOOONG 2ish weeks & receive a Congratulations e-mail! From that point you may only know you have a job - but not the exact unit, shift or pay @ that time but at least you've been selected!! Just an FYI this hire group is supposed to start December/January..Temple hires new grads for all Med/Surg Units/ICUs/ED/OR depending on open positions in the hospital after all of the jobs have been posted internally (law by the union)..& most people found themselves on the floors they wished to be on! Orientation will be 1 full week of classroom and 12 weeks with a preceptor then you're alll on your own but continue with N2P classes, certifications, etc. for months to come :) Best of luck to everyone!
Thanks Angelnurse for the info. I'm just hoping I get a chance for an interview and hopefully the job.
So i finally received an e-mail from HR. I have to take an online pre screening test by tomorrow evening. Im really nervous about it because i graduated in May and i feel like i forgot a lot of things.
happy for you!! sad for me, didnt receive anything from HR, guess Im not "pre-selected"...back to the Hunt...
I did not receive anything either. It's very frustrating and sad for me actually. My eggs were not all put in this basket but still...I had at least hoped for an interview.
they send an e-mail if they aren't interested in you. if you haven't received that e-mail, you may still have a shot.
Hmm, that is a little reassuring to hear, Val212. I appreciate that. Best of luck to you!
