San Diego UCSD July new grad RN program

  1. I recently applied and sent my questionnaire back for the UCSD new grad program for July 2010. Has anyone done the same and heard back from them? I noticed they took off the job posting already.

    Any info/tips/news/advice regarding the program and or the interview process? Thanks and good luck to all of us new grads :] (especially ones (like me) who graduated last year in may 2009 and are still looking for a job :[ )

    From an internal employee I was told they closed the application period early because there were so many ppl applying. I believe she said it was 1100 ppl or more and HR told her when she inquired for me that they only had 10 slots available. The employee isn't a nurse so when I talked with her recently she was shocked that there aren't any positions for us. After I received the email to submit my questionaire that was the last time I heard anything.

    Thanks for the info. 10 out of 1100+ doesn't sound very promising :[

    well lets cross our fingers... I'm hearing the 1500-2000 range for all the programs. I guess we are competing with probably 3 -4 semesters of new grads... Oh well, I hope one of us gets a call back.

    Do all of you currently live in SD?

    I have not heard anything either. But I didn't get a questionnaire. Did you get it immediately after applying?

    I got my questionnaire about 2 days after I submitted my app, and I applied the first day of the posting.
