    Hi psalm21! I interviewed at 1330, during my interview they noted that they had actually heard there were more positions that they had thought and I assume it may end up being more than 16. I was not a CCE for Palomar though....what unit did you say you prefer???
    I said telemetry, but that I was open to any as I know a lot of units incorporate telemetry. I am so excited at this opportunity. What unit did you prefer? Are you from SD? What school? Congrats to you!

    What other questions did you guys ask the interviewers? Maybe we can compile preliminary info for each other. (Of course nothing is certain until we hear it directly from official source). I asked them, for example, how long the residency program would be and was told it is 10 weeks long but may be longer depending on what specialty we are hired into.

    Congratulations to everyone who got the email! I too, am one of the final candidates. What was so strange was I couldn't sleep soundly last night because for some reason I had a feeling that I may get a call/email from PPH today. And of course I was imagining all sorts of responses...the acceptance AND denial LOL. So does anybody know whether this is still a screening process? As in would more be rejected if they feel the letters of recommendation are not strong enough compared to others? I almost peed my shorts thinking it was a final acceptance. Then again, you never know and I don't want to get too excited, then hear that they have to cut more people. Congrats again to all of you in the boat with me, lets cross all our hands, toes, legs, eyes and wish we all get a position!!!

    Hello everyone. Figured I'd join the conversation. I also got the email. I was a previously a CCE also. To say that I'm happy right now would be an understatement!!! Congrat's to those going through. Look forward to meeting you in the near future!

    I sent mine in last night as well!! The email stated that they would be in touch with us within the next week. I'm just keeping that in mind because I'm going a little nutty with this wait! I know of one person who got a call but she got her stuff in like a minute after the email was sent out. I'm assuming that the recruiter was already by the computer and decided to just call her. I haven't heard of anyone else receiving a call. A lot of people that read my email have stated that we pretty much are in...I think the call is just to tell us which department we are going into! After all, it does say "I will be in touch with you within the next week regarding the position".

    I am guessing they got overwhelmed with all the paperwork that people sent in on Thursday. They probably figured it would be more efficient if they just informed everyone on the same day.

    I had copies of all my recommendation letters & life support cards in my portfolio. But they didnt forward it & still wanted me to send another copy to the other person. So I went to pick up my portfolio today, and the lady said that they increased the acceptance pool to around 36 people! That was a gigantic jump and pretty much increased everyone's chances. So they pretty much accepted half of the people they interviewed. I am ecstatic! So I think once the background check goes through and they have all our recommendations, then we are in! I don't think they will be cutting more people unless something is not cleared/provided.

    Oh wow! What great news! I'm so excited! This is definitely becoming more of a reality! What departments did you all request?

    I would ideally want the ED (someday :T), but requested Med-Surg/Tele to start off as a new grad.
