    Those who got an interview and/or position offer:
    I was wondering if you could share some background info (GPA, experience, where you precepted, CA resident?, etc...) Anything else that may be helpful (what unit you got an offer on). I am graduating in May from a BSN program (out of state and I am not a CA resident), but I am thinking about applying for the next round.

    I applied for the recent new grad program in the Perinatal loop (there were actually 2 different ones this time) and am unable to find a thread for this particular app cycle. I have an interview next Friday and am VERY excited. This is really my ideal job and I'd be so happy to get a chance to work there.

    Anyway, I was hoping I might be able to get some pointers from those who interviewed last time around- what types of questions did they ask? In the interviews I've had so far, it's been mostly behavioral- i.e. tell me about a time you used the nursing process with a patient or what would you do if you had a conflict with a coworker. I have not been asked any clinical questions yet, but does UCSD ask those types of questions?

    Any advice/ input is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi rainingeleven! I hope your interview went well!! I have an interview next week as well. I was wondering if you had a panel interview and how many people were on the panel? How was the experience overall? Hope it was a great experience and good luck with landing the job!!

    My interview was for the L&D loop. It ended up being 3 people (2 managers of L&D, 1 of FMCC) and they were very nice. I felt like it went really well, but then again you never know what exactly they are looking for and who else they are interviewing. There were some behavioral questions, but not as many as in past interviews I've had. They wanted to know more specifics about my preceptorship, and there was one prioritization question. I was told they will not be letting people know for 2 weeks, possibly a little longer. That wait is going to be so hard! Good luck on your interview next week! Which loop are you interviewing for?
