    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Summerlin Hospital in May 2012.


    I was hired by a third party agency. The recruiter wanted to know what modules of Cerner I was familiar with? I responded : I'm familiar with the following Cerner Modules: Power Notes, Power Charts, First Net , and CPOE.
    After completing the phone interview, the recruiter advised me he would get back with me after submitting my resume to the hiring manager. The recruiter got back with me in a couple of day's and advised me of the next step. The next step was to complete my paper work for back ground check and drug test.
