UCSD New Grad (FMCC/NICU/Perinatal Program) 2013

  1. 0 Hi, everyone! I am starting this thread to see if anyone out there has applied to- and possibly interviewed with- UCSD earlier in November for their new grad perinatal program (or for another program if you would like to share too). I applied and had an interview earlier this week and am trying my best to wait patiently, but knowing I'm not waiting alone would be nice

    I had 8 people on my panel. The references are for professional references (like those you've worked with that can vouch for you). I interviewed last Tuesday and haven't heard anything yet (eeeek!). I mostly spoke about L&D as that is where my preceptorship was and that is my ideal unit to be in (we did talk about NICU and PP a bit too).
    If you don't mind me asking, what are you guys' backgrounds? If this doesn't end up coming through for me, I may have to resort to moving- I'm coming to the end of my hope-and-patience rope so I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do to up my chances for a job in SD, my fiance has a wonderful job here so I'd really like to avoid moving. I graduated last fall with a BSN, have ACLS and NRP, precepted in L&D, am a member of AWHONN, took the maternal newborn class...

    I had a preceptorship in NICU and at a Women's Center which included L&D, Triage, and antepartum. I did a leadership rotation on a postpartum unit. In addition, I have all my certs, took the MNNC, and a member of AWHONN, and sigma theta tau. I conducted a research study my senior year about the birth process. It's rough to wait for the right position, but I'm sure it will all work out how it's supposed to!!

    I was so nervous for my interview and it was my first interview ever so I don't really have anything to base it off of to know if I did well or not..but just hoping for the best and seeing it as a learning experience!Do you know if everyone who interviews receives a reference email? Or are those to who they are still qualifying. Also, if we provide emails for those who wrote our letter of recs, would it look bad if they just attached the same letter of rec that I provided the panel with..Thanks for all your help and I'm seriously hoping the best for everyone

    For those of you who interviewed, did they say when the program starts in January?

    nursesworkhard- They didn't give a specific start date during my interview, but they did say that they wanted to have job offers out before "the holidays" so my best guess is that it wouldn't start until at least late January.

    daisy36- not everyone will receive a reference email. During my interview they said that an email asking you to give a heads up to your references that they will be contacted is the next step in the hiring process after interviews, so if you receive that email, I would say that's a good sign. I'm not sure about the letter of rec thing- I believe UCSD would contact your references via email and have specific questions or just want a concrete reference, so they probably aren't looking for a "letter of rec" at that point, but if that's all your references would be able to offer, it's better than nothing.

    jylo- good luck on your interview tomorrow!!

    Anybody else's UCSD job status change from "referred to hiring department" to anything else yet? just curious- mine has remained the same.
