SCRIPPS New Grad Program August 2012 - page 9
Hey all! I wanted to start this thread for those of us that applied to Scripps New Grad Program for August 2012. I uploaded my app and finished the Talentmine appraisal on Monday, May 14, at 2... Read More
Jun 13, '12I too hope they let us know soon! I really want this job, it would be amazing for me.
I was asked what area was my preference at the interview, and do have one that would be great (oncology) but I am very open to other areas because I know I will learn a lot and I love the opportunity for a challenge! I hope that stating a specific area doesn't narrow my possiblities!
I also don't have a preference for facility and haven't been fortunate to experience any of them previously, but I know Scripps is a great place!
Jun 13, '12Good morning, RN2012BSN
Scripps is an amazing place... the only facility I've never been to was Encinitas. I've had three family members be cared for at Memorial in La Jolla, and it was always a great experience. I had clinicals myself (I think I mentioned this) at Green and Chula Vista, and they're also wonderful places to be.
Go team! lol
Jun 13, '12Hi AllieCat-
I just re-read some of the posts and saw that you went to APU too. I am in the ELM program on the Azusa campus-r u in the SD EENAP program?
Jun 14, '12Hi Wish4...
Yes, I am in the SD ELM program. Just finishing the 7 week Residency next week. I swear-that was the hardest 18 months of my life! So happy it's about over!
Jun 14, '12Do you think they will make phone calls today, tomorrow?? Or do you all think that they'll wait until next week? I was handling the wait pretty well...until just now, lol.
Jun 14, '12Honestly, I think it will be sometime next week although I wish it were today. Right now would be great. Today I received an email which had HR in the subject header and almost had an MI. Luckily it was only a notification about a new job posting at Kaiser. LOL. Every time I receive a notification from this site I expect someone to say they received a call today but I see we are all in the same boat. Keep your fingers crossed and stay positive. Soon the torture will be over.
Jun 14, '12Oh gosh, I wish it were today! I interviewed on the first day May 31 and these past 14 days have been excruciating to wait!! But nuajhat said... We have to keep on being patient. Just one more week.... We waited this long, we can do another week!
Jun 14, '12Update: A friend of mine just got called by Mercy. I don't have any other details, but keep your phones nearby!
Jun 14, '12hello everyone! i've been creeping on this forum for a while so i could find out when Scripps would be making calls but i only made an account today so i could inform everyone:
i got a call today from the Talent Manager at 1:06pm & she offered me a position at Scripps Mercy on the Medical Acute unit! one of the managers i interviewed with particularly liked me & so i'm starting on her unit. of course, i gladly accepted the offer
it's a full time job & i'm starting out on the day shift for the first 6 months. after 6 months, it may change according to Scripp's needs & i will be floating around to different floors w/in Mercy. they have numerous benefits like NCLEX reimbursement, retention bonuses, medical insurance, & RN certification reimbursements. it's really amazing!
i asked her how many they are hiring & she said about 80. i checked the email she sent me & it said they're hiring 80+.
all the "paperwork" is conducted through email, which is nice. i start August 20th! woo hoo!
feel free to ask me any questions!
Jun 14, '12EMILY I was wondering when you would pop up here :P
One question I have for you, and I'm sure the others are curious... which Mercy? Chula Vista or Hillcrest?
And again, girlfriend. SO HAPPY FOR YOU!
Jun 14, '12Corinne! i didn't know Coriander was you! hahah. small world. anyway, i really have no idea. i just realized that i don't know ha. BOO. i'd prefer Hillcrest but i can't remember which Scripps Mercy my manager works at.
Jun 14, '12Congrats Emily!! So exciting for you!
What day/time did you interview, and did you state a unit preference at the end of your interview/were you asked about that?
Also, are you local? do you know if they provide relocation expense reimbursement for non-locals?? Congrats, and I hope to join you as a new Scripps RN! Let's hope! :-)
To everyone else, keep us posted!
Jun 14, '12Finally good news!! Congratulations to everyone who got a call. Wooo Hoo!!! Emily I have a question for you, do you have your BSN or ADN? Do you have your NCLEX already? I guess my theory about them calling next week has been debunked and I am so happy. Let the calling begin.
