I interviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Interview

Phone interview first and a 4 hour in-person interview. I asked about the salary range multiple times and kept receiving the same response of it depends on experience, etc. Then I was asked to submit references and I asked about the salary again. The next day, I received a template email from HR saying we have decided to move forward with other candidates. (Likely a low salary)

The process took over 3 months. I had 5 zoom interviews with them, and they also checked my references. I’ve met with the manager, associate manager, 1 nurse, 2 CRCs and 1 physician. After all the interviews, I did not hear back from them. I reached out and there was no response. The staffs were nice during the interview process. The questions are not too difficult.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in May 2022

Interview

Video chat interview with the informatics director. She was very nice and told me about the position. Essentially she is looking to expand the nursing informatics team, since currently she is the only one. This position requires the candidate to travel to several different ambulatory sites and therefore requires the candidate have a car and driver's license. The informatics director is very nice and passionate about her work. Their sites use Epic EHR, and candidates are expected to have experience with Epic EHR use (particularly in ambulatory sites). The candidate will also be expected to participate in go-lives of new systems. I did not get an offer, but what was confusing was that I received an automatically generated rejection letter from HR while their careers website stated I was still under consideration. I tried to follow up to clarify what this meant, but HR was not clear in their response to me. It has been awhile since my interview and I have not heard anything since, so I am assuming that I did not receive an offer. If you are applying to this position, I recommend closely following up with HR. Also, having an MA nursing license from the get-go is a requirement. I did not have one and although I am eligible to apply for one, I feel that negatively impacted my chances at this opportunity. Most informatics nurse positions only require applicants to be eligible for licensure in the organization's state (and apply for licensure after being hired) so please be aware of this requirement.

Interview Questions
  • Why did you choose to apply to Dana-Farber?
  • Why did you pursue a career in nursing informatics?
  • What experience do you have with Epic, especially Epic for outpatient and ambulatory sites?
