    Easy Interview


    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Children's National Health System.


    HR is no nonsense. After I applied they called me two days later. They picked the date and if I couldn't attend, they said "Thank you for your consideration" and ended the call. Eventually I was able to go to the initial interview. It consisted of a very basic written test with questions on basic calculations like pounds to kg, basic math and medical terminology. Then you interview with the nurse recruiter. If they liked you and you passed your test, your application is forwarded to the units in need and they contact you. The interview on the units depend on where you go. It can be very serious to a casual conversation with your bar buddy. If they like you, you get an offer then pre employment physical.
