    Hi! I got my email packet in the mail yesterday and I applied the day it was open. I'm from NY...so I'm hoping that they will at least call me for an interview whenever the interviewing process begins. Does anyone know if they hire a lot of out of state RNs for this program?

    I read in previous threads for CHLA that someone met a few out of state nurses while they did clinicals there. I believe NY was one of them if that helps.

    Hello fellow CHLA Applicants!

    Just started working on my letter of intent. I am planning on choosing CV acute, 2nd choice float. What are you all choosing for your 1st choice?

    I remember reading in the old CHLA threads, that they offer an option to have a phone interview for the 1st round. Which I think was for the purpose of making it easier for those applying out of state.

    Hey fellow applicants!

    I been out of nursing school since December 2011 and passed the boards in Feb. Since it's been a long time and this residency RN program which I would love to get into, only starts in March 2013...what are the chances for a "old" new RN grad?

    A friend of mine graduated in May 2011 and is now in the March 2012 cohort. December 2011? I don't think you should consider yourself an "old" new grad at all!

    I completely agree!! Who knows what HR is actually looking for! Some hospitals won't consider you if it's been longer than 12 months since you've graduated, and others don't care as long as you don't have more than a year of RN experience. So just go for it, if it's something you want to do!

    Also, does anyone know how many they are taking/ how many applied?

    On their website it says that the criteria is 2 years or less since graduation, BSN or ADN with a Bachelors degree in another field, and no more than 12 months experience as a RN. So you're fine! Good luck to everyone!

    I am still waiting on one letter of rec, so I cant turn mine in until Monday.


    I read in a previous cohort thread (Mar. 2012), that HR said they would start reviewing packets after Oct 14, which was the packet deadline for them. I assumed that the reason for the set due date was to allow time for people to secure letters of rec. etc…


    Do you all think it will be the same way for us?

    I have no idea. I read in a previous cohort thread that they review them as soon as they receive them, but who knows if that person actually knew what they were talking about because two conflicting things have been posted. I think it makes more sense for them to review them after the deadline because of the issue of waiting for letters of rec. Good luck turning yours in! Just so you know the HR office is across the street from the main hospital near the construction -- I was wandering for a while trying to find it.

    What is everyone choosing as their first choice? I am hoping for heme/onc.
