i know! i havent read any posts on here about people who applied yet. maybe they are secretive lol but i havent got the packet in the email yet and i applied yesterday. im nervous! lol are you from LA?? im all the way in houston and im not sure how many externals get in :/
I applied yesterday and haven't received the packet yet. Did all you you have your senior preceptorship in pediatrics? I had mine in adult med-surg/tele because so many of my classmates wanted pediatrics, but I absolutely love caring for children! I know this doesn't help my application, but I hope this doesn't mean that they'll reject me instantly.
I didn't even have the opportunity to do a senior preceptorship in pediatrics Our closest 'pediatrics' hospital was relocating the unit and wasn't taking any students. So I did mine in an ICU/Neuro-Trauma ICU. I figure the intensity and critical thinking of ICU can be applied to pediatrics? I do have a lot of experience working with children though.
I wish I knew how CHLA's selection process goes... or any large hospital actually. I have a feeling the packets might take a little bit to go out. Think of how many people applied!
i know several people who got interviewed or hired with CHLA from the last cohort of applicants, they did not do their senior preceptorship in PEDs. they either did med/surg or tele. i think as long as you have a passion for workign with children, you'll be fine!
I dont think it matters about your preceptorship. As long as you qualify and the nail the interview but i applied the very fisrt day the app went out and still havent got the packet! this is frustrating lol. i read about the previous cohort that started in march, and people we anxious all the way up until they recieved the job offer so i guess this is normal. i have been looking up apartments already, and boy can i tell you, texas is WAYYYY cheaper! does anyone know how the interviews work??
Yes LA is very expensive. I applied to the program last year and I did my preceptorship in peds but did not get it. I am hoping since I have my license and have revamped my resume it will be different. As far as the packet if I can remember correctly I received the packet about 3 business days after submitting the app.
