    yeah, they called my yesterday for an interview for psych, i heard that they are taking more people [rumor] , they changed my " not selected" status to "interviewing" definetely very strange things are happening, it is a panel interview against like 4 others, so i wont really expect too much luck, i hope you guys best of luck and get calls soon!!!!!!!!

    Lol, that's okay. Nothing wrong with that. I actually just got off the phone with the recruiter and sadly I'm still on the waiting list. She informed me they're pretty much only interviewing people who had their license at the time of application or have it already, but I told her I take my nclex tmrw so hopefully enough people drop out that it'll move me into a slot lol. Good luck on your interview next week though!

    Does anyone who had an interview today have advice for those who interview for surgical & oncology for the next to days?

    I'm applying for the next round right now, and I was wondering if you guys included a cover letter with your resume? I'm conflicted about whether or not to include it since they don't specifically ask for it...

    I put in my application when the program first opened up last year in August-December 2016, not sure when. My application went from "in review" to the dreaded "consider for future" then to "in review," once more. I got a call for an interview for the March cohort and was given 2 options surgical or internal medicine/ psych not sure but I chose surgical. I was told their would be 4 nurse managers they will each ask you one question, have real clinical experiences, (explanation the situation, action, and outcome) in 2 minutes succinct answer. And that's pretty much how it went. Everyone their was well qualified but here is the truth about this process, the people you are interviewing with could be your coworkers in the future because they can choose all of you or none depending on who the unit managers want for their team. I am happy to say that I accepted a position yesterday. Good luck to you all!

    Hi there! I was wondering if anyone could give some advice as to the questions they were asked in their interviews? I have one coming up at Stanford and would love any advice and help you could offer!

    Hi,
    To anyone who was accepted into the Stanford New grad program. How are you liking it? Are you happy with your choice?

    I am sitting here with my cohort and we all like it so far. Some of us have been fortunate to have really good preceptors but others have complained and even cried about their experience so it varies by unit and person. It's definitely difficult being a newgrad and adjusting to the hospital. Every day is a challenge and it's rewarding at the same time. It just takes time. I am happy with my choice and I plan to transfer to the ICU when I get the chance. One thing I will let you know is that Stanford is changing to a new model where every unit will have patients on monitors. Its called adaptive acuity units and it's practically the ability to take care of IICU patients on every floor. The ratio changes to 3:1 when you do have to care for one of these patients and the education is being merged with the newgraduate program.

    Has anyone heard when the next cohort might start? The website still just says 2018.
