WakeMed’s new streaming service brings added reassurance and connection for NICU families. This new service, NicView™, allows parents to stay connected with their little ones. It is a secure, streaming camera system placed at designated bed spaces within our NICU. This optional, complimentary service is available 24/7, in real time, to help families bond with their preemie or hospitalized infant if and when they aren’t able to be with them in the NICU. It also means that extended families and loved ones have an opportunity to see the babies from a distance! Read more about this new service and technology by clicking the below link.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WakeMed Health and Hospitals (Raleigh, NC) in Nov 2020

    Interview

    Applied online through WakeMed website, contacted by phone 3 days later to schedule an interview with Nurse Manager. The interview was scheduled for the following Monday at my request. The nurse manager was out of the office, so I met with one of the Nurse Supervisors. The face-to-face interview took about 2 hours, including a unit tour and a short shadow opportunity with a current staff member in a similar role. I was given a clear expectation of what to expect from HR and a good idea of what to expect if an offer was made. 7 days after the interview, an HR representative called me to extend the verbal offer and explain the onboarding process.
