RN Recruiting Process

 

RECRUITING PROCESS 

At Interstaff, we promote our programs through various mediums including Facebook, Instagram, Google, and YouTube. We also rely on word of mouth through nurses who refer our agency to friends and colleagues. Interested candidates can visit our website (www.interstaffinc.com) to learn more about our programs and apply.

 

Clinical Requirements

Applicants must be Registered Nurse, have an active nursing license, currently work full-time in an acute care inpatient facility with 100+ beds along with 1 year of current bedside experience, and speak strong English.

Application Process

Aside from our clinical requirements, Interstaff only requires an active nursing license and an updated CV/Resume to apply to our program. We do NOT require applicants to pass the NCLEX or IELTS before applying. The application process may take one week to two months depending on how long an applicant completes each step, as well as our interview availability.

Information Given

We send several emails throughout the application process to help nurses become familiar with our program and our staff: 

  1. Once nurses submit a general application, they receive an email with a video link explaining our application process.
  2. As a nurse awaits their interview, we send an introductory email from their interviewer.
  3. Nurses also receive a link to an hour-long video where our Programs Manager intricately explains the EB3 Visa program.
  4. Lastly, we share an email encouraging nurses to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and subscribe to our Youtube, and visit our Blog page.

Interview Process

We are looking for knowledgeable nurses who are positive, optimistic, passionate, and empathetic. “During the interview, nurses should be able to confidently talk about their day-to-day tasks and responsibilities they undertake in their hospitals.” The interview is approximately 20 minutes, and nurses are notified of their status within a week. “No one deciding factor determines if a nurse receives a contract offer. Our Clinical team evaluates a nurse’s skills and experience to determine if they will successfully transition into a US hospital” (Taylor Harris, Programs Manager). 

Nurses receive a contract via email once they are selected for our program. “We send an extensive article that explains the requirements, terminologies, and expectations. We want nurses to be comfortable with their decision in working with us.” (Taylor Harris). 

If a nurse is comfortable with our terms, and they sign the contract, we pair the nurse with a Processing Officer who will assist with their U.S. RN process from start to finish. Taylor Harris has the following advice for nurses: “Ask questions whenever you don’t understand or need more information. We encourage nurses to be as communicative as possible. We are here to help.”
