I know the new grads that I've talked to on several of my clinical floors have said that they did their clinical there, which helped them get a summer externship (which sucked that there weren't externships this summer) or NA job, and then they were hired. At the end of the rotations I've had at UNC the nurse manager will come talk to us and give us a little spiel about interviewing and inevitably one will say that they wanted to hire someone who was an NA on their floor or who they had gotten to know from clinical and how they would work with HR to hire them. On two of my rotations the nurse managers handed their cards out at the end and said to email them when we started looking for jobs. It has been so hard to get a job lately I will for sure be emailing them soon!
