    I have applied to three so I hope not! LOL

    There was nothing about only applying to one. If you qualify I would apply.

    Poll Questions:

    What training program did you apply for?
    What unit did you precept on?
    When did you graduate?
    Any RN experience already?

    Poll answers:
    -Adult Transitional Care
    -Step down unit
    -Dec 2011
    -1 month at a snf/rehab center.

    I only applied to one! I get so nervous, are recruiters going to see that you applied to all three and think you are not dedicated to that specialty/position? Thats the one thing i'm worried about. I heard either through all nurses or the new grad fb page that a girl was asked in her interview about why she applied to different positions in the past.

    I want to apply to a few too but I'm not sure

    If I am not mistaken, I thought you received a job offer for UCLA?

    I did receive a job offer from UCLA. But I live 10 blocks from UCSF and much would rather not have to uproot my life...

    I completely understand I would do the same in your situation, especially since UCSF is also known as a great hospital too.

    After submitting the app, when you guys review your application does it have both "Yes" and "No" checked for the application questionnaire portion? It does for me for each question and I swear I only checked one box lol.

    Hi healthcare4life,

    I went back to my application and I had the same thing. Some of the questions had both Yes and No checked for the application questionnaire. I know I checked only one answer for each.

    is "focused training/internship" the same as a preceptorship? i've never heard of that term before.

    That application process was frustrating. It did keep logging me out too.

    Did anyone feel like the application process was too easy? Haha. And are we suppose to receive a long questionnaire type survey at the end. I currently graduated (last Saturday) and so I was not able to put anything down for the license part...I have my AHA BLS but that was not an option to put down and I won't be taking my NRP until next week so I was not able to put that down as well. I hope leaving that section empty won't hurt my chances.

    Also, I have two resumes saved on there (would like to delete one off) but there is no option to?

    Edit:

    I just called and talked to HR for those who are having the same problem as I am. She told me don't worry about not putting anything down for the license part if you are a new grad (like me) and it won't hurt your chances. Also, she was able to look up my resume for me and only one showed up for her, even though for me...two showed up when I went back to look at my application; so it shouldn't be a problem....

    Good luck to everyone.

    Did anyone attach a cover letter to their application? Also, for general work experience, did anyone put their clinical rotations as "work" ?

    I am having some serious issues with this webpage.

    As for this stuff:
    What training program did you apply for? Transitional Care
    What unit did you precept on? Neurotrauma ICU, CVICU, and a surgical unit
    When did you graduate? May 2001 :\
    Any RN experience already? Volunteering at a free clinic.


    jenn3999 - I'm not putting my clinical rotations as work because unfortunately it isn't really work. So I made sure that the rotations I wanted to highlight were in my resume. Also, in the 'work' space I put down a preceptorship (which wasn't connected to my college, it was external) and all my volunteer experience.
