If you are considering leaving your staff job to come on board, we are delighted to answer any and all questions that you will have. We recognize that this is a big decision, and you’ll need a lot of information to know which options we have are best for you. You never have to leave your staff job before we secure you an assignment, and its often a good idea to stay in a low-commitment PRN capacity so that you can keep your foot in the door. We recognize that you’ve likely established strong relationships and familiarity at your staff home, and encourage you to keep that connection through a PRN option that you can work around your schedule with Chesapeake.
Once we have answered all of your questions, arranged some interviews, and you’ve accepted your first assignment with us, you can then give notice at your staff job (either to leave totally, or reduce your status from full time to PRN). If you need to provide more than two weeks notice, please make sure your Recruiting Manager knows so they can arrange your start date accordingly. Assignments typically start 2 to 4 weeks from the date they are accepted, so its not an issue to wait to provide two weeks notice until you’ve accepted an assignment. In those 2 to 4 weeks, you’ll complete your hiring process with our HR team, the facility credentialing department will review and clear your HR file, and the facility education department will arrange all of your orientation.
We’ll walk you through every step of the process and make sure you have an extraordinary experience leading up to your first day, and check in regularly once you’ve started your assignment to make sure everything is going well. Always remember, your Recruiting Manager and our CNO are always available to support you through any challenges you may face and ensure you’re having a successful assignment.
