    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!

    Everything you said is exactly how I feel. I hope we both get it because I think we will get along! I was so inspired by their organization and the way they empower nursing. I just kept reading all these pdfs, especially their 2010 Annual report, and just fell in love with CHLA.

    CHLA is where the versant new grad RN program originated... They ought to be one of the best if not the best in training their nurses! Being hopeful and optimistic through all of this.

    I have the certs but I don't think it really makes a huge difference, unfortunately. Who knows what they look for! Keeping fingers crossed and hoping for the best for all of us. This will be a long wait.

    I am totally right there with you guys. I have applioed to many things, been super hopeful about many of them, but this is one that I can feel in my bones that it would be perfect!!It looks amazing, and looks like they will continue improving to stay amazing. I am so nervous that I won't get the call, and I'm trying so hard not to get my hopes up. But I really, really hope this works out.

    Good luck to all of us!! Let's hope these calls come soon!

    Definitely! Its nice to kind of know whats going on...I was reading a blog from the cohort that started in September 2012 and the due date for the packets was March 26th someone said (which I believe is when I remember submitting mine last time also) and the first thread I saw of someone getting a call for an interview was like April 16th is so that's about 3 weeks....and its only been two weeks today since the packet deadline date...so there is still time

    So we are almost there!! Its actually probably a good sign that they take three weeks because that means they are taking the time to consider all the packets, so we all will get looked at.

    I like that perspective, that they are taking time because they are going through the applications -- keeps me from going too crazy! I'm hoping that if I do get called to interview it is early in the process because my baby is due in mid-November. I would rather not go into labor during the interview if I am so fortunate as to get one.
