    If the program is still around they do not maintain a wait list for Fellows. They interview, select, and if you don't make it - you can reapply.

    Wow really that's news to me. I remember that Banner used to have those fellow programs listed on their website but it is is no longer there now. Do Bilingual RN even make any extra in pay?

    I remember I considered it like 2 years ago and I thought I was told that there wasn't any extra in pay for a Bilingual Nurse....

    Thank you so much for your information. I'm getting ready to go to an information session and this is one of my last resorts. All other programs seem to have years and years of waiting lists . Thanks!

    Not one dime of extra pay...but lots of respect/appreciation from your co-workers. If you work at Banner, you will need every word of your Spanish language skills...

    Are other supervisors and coworkers allowed to pull you from what you are doing to help communicate with their spanish patients??? I speak spanish fluently but if I'm not getting extra money I'm not going to do a Bilingual program, just doesn't make sense to me.

    Best of Luck elle_luna !

    Yes, they pull you away. But always nicely and with an understanding that you are busy. I have kept people waiting if I were in the midst of something serious. I have always had my time respected. A non-issue.
