Clinical Nurse II Interview

Clinical Nurse II
Durham, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Duke University Health System.

Interview Details – The interview process up to now has been excellent. There was an open house for the facility in my town. The nurse managers were available to answer questions to candidates and interview on the spot. That was very successful. I was called back for a second interview and to shadow an employee for 2-3 hours, to make sure that this was what I really wanted, then I was interviewed again. I still haven't been hired, but I no that the job is mine.

Interview Question – Present a case in which you had to go over and beyond the call of duty in order to provide care to your patient.   Answer Question

Revenue Integrity Analyst Interview

Revenue Integrity Analyst
Durham, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Duke University Health System in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted by a recruiter about the position, and hired to be a consultant. After being there for two months I was offered a full-time position. I received a call from the HR representative regarding the position. Intitially, I was surprised because the salary I was told the position offered was much lower than what the HR representative told me they were willing to offer me.

Interview Question – After hearing about the salary it took me a moment to think about what I wanted to do. Having made the move from home I was somewhat disappointed with Duke and my recruiter and ready to go back home. However, after taking some time to think and to renegotiate we found a middle ground and I accepted the offer to come on board. The most unexpected question was why would someone with my qualifications take this position at Duke?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I initially turned down the first and the second offer. We were able to meet in the middle and I accepted the third offer.
