    I'm in the same boat ... I just haven't had the finances to get it. However, on my cover letter I did mention that I pursuing it (aka I keep looking longingly at the class in my area and then back at my bank account).

    Hoping that this doesn't get me pushed out; you never know what they're looking for.

    I have my PALS but it hasn't helped me in the past so I have no idea what they look for. I hope we can all get interviews! It'd be nice to finally hear something other than "decided to pursue other candidates".

    Hi, Just found this thread. Good to know I'm not the only one on edge looking for a job. It's been a month since passing NCLEX and about 4 since graduating. Since then I have been applying like crazy. After applying and sending in my packet to CHLA I got a phone call from another children's hospital for an interview. Well it has been 2 weeks ago that I interviewed for a NICU position and I still have not heard if I got the position or not. So I guess I will have to keep on waiting. I wish I got a phone call saying one way or the other.

    I must ask, do all of you who applied have PALS already in your resume?? I havent had the money yet to get it but im planning on it soon! so I was just wondering if I could get pushed aside if I don't...
    I decided to get PALS after the online app, figuring it couldn't hurt, so its on my packet resume and I mentioned it somewhere in my letter of intent. I had just submitted the online and it just hit me to get it done before the packet...

    I got ACLS and EKG/Dysrhythmia Interpretation certified back in January before I even graduated, I figured it would be helpful with my final Critical Care rotation and tests in the lecture portion. I went and did the PALS in July after passing NCLEX because I knew I wanted to work with Pediatric patients down the line. Going to go do an NRP in the next couple weeks. With all that said and all that on my resume, it hasn't made much difference in finding a job...I am hoping this is where it finally makes that difference and that phone rings soon... for all of us!

    I could be wrong bc its my first time applying, but I don't think that not having PALS would do much to hurt an applicant, since it isnt required, I just did it bc i figured it couldnt hurt, not assuming it would push me over the edge or anything...i think being an ideal candidate has more to do with all the other stuff...so basically if I am a so-so candidate, having PALS probably wont save me!

    I know its going to make rejection sting that much more, but I can't help get my hopes up! CHLA is my holy grail of new grad programs!!

    I really wish we knew what they were looking for. I also have my PALS and ACLS...Im hoping this time around that having my RN license now helps we all want this so bad! hopefully the phones start ringing in the next few days!! fingers crossed

    I totally agree with you. This is the only program that makes me think that will help me become an excellent nurse and achieve my goals. I read so much about it and also about the whole institution that, to be honest, it's the only new grad program that I've applied in Ca. Because of it, I decided to apply for the NCLEX which I could passed (Im from Puerto Rico). Is the only place where Im willing to leave my country and start a new stage in my life as a professional. If that doesn't happen.....I have plan B, C and D. But Im SUPER DUPER READY for that CALL!
