COVID-19 Resources for Candidates

Nationwide Children’s Interview Process Precautions

Nationwide Children’s continues to interview and hire candidates for all of our open positions.

To protect the health and safety of our patients, our staff and the community, we have implemented additional safety precautions, in alignment with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, to slow the spread of COVID-19.

We are taking every effort to conduct interviews over the phone or through video when needed.

If you have applied for a position and have been contacted by a Talent Acquisition representative for an interview, they will provide you with the specific information and resources you need.

We continue to evaluate circumstances in which the appropriate technology may not be available for conducting a phone or video interview. In these situations, we will make every possible effort to develop a solution that fits each candidate’s needs. Please continue to work directly with your Talent Acquisition representative for instruction and guidance. 

For questions, please email Talent@NationwideChildrens.org.

Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Nationwide Children's Hospital requires all new hires to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital must comply with regulations set forth by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS). Nationwide Children’s therefore requires anyone who provides care, treatment, or other services at Nationwide Children’s and/or to Nationwide Children’s patients be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

New hires must have completed the primary vaccination series, have received at least the first dose of a two-dose vaccine series, or have a pending or approved medical or religious exemption from Nationwide Children’s. New hires who have not completed their primary vaccination series will be required to complete the series within three days of becoming eligible for the second dose.

For example, if you received your first dose of the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine on March 15, 2022 and are eligible for the second dose on April 5, 2022, you must receive and upload proof of your second dose no later than April 8, 2022.

Please note that you cannot start work at Nationwide Children’s until you have completed the primary vaccination series, have received at least the first dose of a two-dose vaccine series, or have a pending or approved medical or religious exemption from Nationwide Children’s. If you begin work at Nationwide Children’s only partially compliant and do not upload proof within the time period referenced above, you will be work restricted.
