A pilot program in two hospitals using a group interview approach for new graduate nurse selection enabled multidisciplinary leadership participation. The interview process incorporated structured behavioral and scenario-based questions. The pilot shortened the traditional one-to-one interview process by 70% and improved retention one year from hire by 17.5%.
