    I got a call too! I was so happy just to finally make it to HR without a rejection!
    Aww yay! What unit/hosp did you apply for?

    Thanks! I'm guessing they're calling people for the l&d units since it starts soon. I hope they start calling for the other ones soon.

    So they scheduled you for an interview?
    No, they aren't setting up interviews yet. It's just a screening interview over the phone. The recruiter said they will then forward my information to the hiring manager and they will be letting people know if they will be moving on to the next step in the hiring process within 2-3 weeks. I'm assuming she means a face to face interview.

    L&D at Grossmont was my first pick too! Did you take the Maternal Newborn Nursing Care class they recommended?

    I'm assuming too that they are starting with L&D units first since the program is supposed to start in November!

    Anyone heard from Mary Birch L&D? That was my first choice and grossmont my second (didn't get a call from them)

    No, I haven't taken it yet. I just got my BSN in July and this is the first New Grad program I've applied to. I had no idea about that class until I applied. I contacted RPS and am hoping to hear from them soon and take the class ASAP! I'm just hoping that doesn't hurt my chances of getting in.

    I know that class has been a requirement for Mary birch the last few application periods I think it was a requirment for all sharp L&D departments this time around.

    Yeah, I thought it was a requirement too. I asked the recruiter specifically about it and she said that it is recommended but not a requirement at this time (at least for Grossmont). I hope she is right!

    And thanks for the info on the class. Hopefully I can get in on the one in February then.

    So did everyone who got a call back from Sharp for L&D take the RPS (Maternal Newborn Nursing Care class)? I am just curious. I didn't apply to L&D b/c I thought it was required. Anyone apply for NICU?

    I applied for L&D at Sharp Grossmont and NICU at Mary Birch. I had a preceptorship at both places while in nursing school and took the RPS class this summer. Haven't gotten any calls yet!
