    I applied as well! Apparently, 200 applications were accepted before they took down the job at 10AM!

    I applied too! Got it in at 8:07.
    They are only hiring 10 people and preference goes to Clinical Career Extender volunteers.
    Good luck all!

    The HR person said they had over 500 apps by 10.

    Did HR say they had 500 applications total(internal and external) or 500 applications for external applicants. Did HR tell you they are only hiring 10 people?

    It was a friend of mine that called when they were not able to submit their app. They were told "We are looking for 10 candidates." They did not discriminate whether the applications were internal or external.

    My application status changed this morning from being reviewed by employee development department (or something like that) to ...under consideration for open positions.

    Hi everyone, thanks for posting the extra info. The position was posted for internal candidates on Sept 5th (I saw it on the top of the posting), but even with 500 applicants, the odds sound better than the ones for UCSD. Good luck and thank goodness its a bit of a shorter wait for interviews.

    How many positions did UCSD have?

    They had 3 SICU and 1 Burn ICU for a total of 4, and they had about 1600 applicants from what the recruiter told me. Is it just me or is that an outrageous # of applicants???
