Neonatal Nurse Practitioner students often ask us when the appropriate time to begin their job search is. Although there are many factors to consider, we generally recommend that NNP students start searching about 4-5 months prior to their graduation. This is especially true, if they’re considering relocation, as more factors are at play (packing, moving, selling a home, etc.).
It is important to keep in mind that the interview process, including the initial phone screening, on-site visit, and offer extension/negotiation can take anywhere from several weeks to a few months.
The majority of our clients (that have positions available to new NNPs) welcome student resumes. Many are also able to extend offers pending graduation and NCC certification.
We realize that many NNP students work full time. Starting a job search while working and finishing school can seem like a very daunting task. This is why we encourage students to work with us. As recruiters, we can greatly simplify your job search. We are able to assist you from start to finish, acting as a facilitator between you and your potential employer. Our aim is to make the job search process seemingly effortless. We achieve this through our follow up, interview coordination and preparation, transmission of feedback, resume assistance, and offer negotiation.
Imagine how you will feel knowing you have a position in place upon graduation!
