Hello,

I am looking into the Wellstar RN Residency Program. I was reaching out to anyone who might have ANY information about it or are planning on applying? Thank you!

What info would you like to know?

Any info would be nice. From the interview process, pay, and what the program entails? Thanks!

The process is pretty straightforward. They seem to be really ready to hire so I would go ahead and apply. Personally for me I applied and got called for an interview the same day. Once I interviewed they let me know something the next day. When they call you for an interview they ask your preference in hospitals and units and they have managers from that unit at your interview.

Did you get multiple offers at different departments/hospitals? They asked me preference of unit and not hospital. Im already an employee with them

And is there a pay difference when in residency program?

I didn't get multiple offers only bc they only had managers from the units and hospital I told them was my preference. I have done another interview with them before and had people from the unit I was interested in then and managers from multiple hospitals so it really just depends.You may have managers in the room or via video/phone too. And your paid as an RN but it depends on the unit. But they give shift differentials as well.

Im assuming the shift is nights? Also, any questions they asked or tips for the interview you might have? Really wanting Paulding or Kennestone. Looking at acute care. My interview is in 2ish weeks

Uh the shift also depends on the needs of the unit you would accept an offer with. I start on the 30th and don't have my schedule yet. You will be on orientation for quite a few weeks first though which is M-F. As far as questions they asked why Wellstar, and why the unit and why you feel like you want or would succeed on the unit, and a time when you had an issue with a superior and how you resolved it.

Awesome! I am looking for a cardiac type step down unit. I'm a little worried what units they'll have available and hospital offered. Any skills check offs you have to do?

How long did your interview last? If you don't mind me asking, which unit hired you?

What unit did you tell them you were interested in when they scheduled your interview?

Did you have your recommendation letters at the interview? My interview was schedule soon. And I am not able to get those letters until March. Is that going to be an issue?

I never had or needed any recommendation letters

Thanks for the info Aryele! Were you already a nurse extern with Wellstar by chance?

Also, did you hear back via phone or email after your interview? Thanks!

You're welcome. No I wasn't. And I heard back by phone.
